-7 -7_ -7 -7_ -7__ 7_   6_ 4_  6________
 I had an un_-cle_ name of Mat-thew.____

-5 -5  -6_ -7_ 6_     -5_ 5_ -3_________
He was his fa_-ther’s on_-ly boy._______

-7_  -7_  -7__  -7 6_  -6_ 4_  6_
Born just south of Col-by, Kan-sas

-5 -5  -6_ -7   -6_  -5_   6_  6__
He was his moth-er’s pride and joy.

-6   -7__  9__ 9   -8*_ -7 8__   8    -7 -7_ -7__   8______
Yes, and_  joy was just a  thing that he was raised on_____

-7__ -7  -7_ -7 6__ 6  6    -5__ -6_______
Love was just a way to live and_ die______

9__  9   9__  8 8    8_ -7__ -7_ -7_   7______
Gold was just a wind-y_ Kan_-sas wheat-field__

-7_  -7  -7_  -7  6__ 6_  -6  -5_ 6_____
Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer sky.__

-7_ -7 -7_  -7__ 6_   -7_ 4_   6________
All the sto-ries that he_ told me_______

-5   -6__ -8 -6_ -5_  5 -3_________
Back when  I was just a lad________

-8_ -8_ -8_  -8__ 7    -6 4_   6________
All the mem-‘ries that he gave me_______

-5  -6__ -7   -6_   -5__ -4*_ 5_________
All the_ good times that he__ had.______

-7__ -7  -7_ -7 6_  -6_ 4__  6_______
Grow-in’ up_  a Kan-sas farm boy_____

-5_  -6_ -7_  -6_ -5  -6_ -3_________
Life is_ most-ly_ hav-in’ fun________

-7_ -7  -7_ -7_ 6   -6__ 4_    6________
Rid-in’ on_ his dad-dy’s shoul-ders_____

-5 -5_  -6 -7_  -6 -5_   -4* 5___
Be-hind  a mule be-neath the sun.

-6   -7__ 9__ 9   -8*_ -7 8__   8    -7 -7_ -7__   6______
Yes, and_ joy was just a thing that he was raised on______

-7__ -7  -7_ -7 6__ 6  6    -7__ -6_______
Love was just a way to live and die_______

9__  9   9__  8 8    8_ -7__ -7_ -7_   7______
Gold was just a wind-y_ Kan_-sas wheat-field__

-7_  -7  -7_  -7  6__ 6_  -6  -5_ 6_____
Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer sky.__

-7_  -7 -7_   -7__  6_   -6_  4_   6________
Well, I guess there were some hard times____

-5  -6__ -8   -6_  -5_   5    -3_________
And I’m_ told some years were lean_______

-8   -8_ -8_ -8_   -8__  7   -6 4_  6________
They had  a_ storm in__ ‘for-ty sev-en_______

-5 -5   -6__ -7   -6_ -5__      -4*_ 5_________
 A twist-er_ came and stripped ‘em__ clean.____

-7 -7__ -7  -7_ -7   6_   -6_ 4__  6_______
He lost the farm and lost his fam-‘ly______

-5 -5_  -6_ -7_   -6_ -5   -6_ -3_________
He lost the wheat and lost his home_______

-7_ -7 -7_   -7_ 6   -6__ 4_ 6________
But he found the fam-‘ly_ Bi-ble______

-5 -5_   -6 -7_ -6 -5_ -4* 5___
 A faith as sol-id as_  a  stone.

-6   -7__ 9__ 9   -8*_ -7 8__   8    -7 -7_ -7__   8______
Yes, and_ joy was just a  thing that he was raised on_____

-7__ -7  -7_ -7 6__ 6  6    -7__ -6_______
Love was just a way to live and_ die______

9__  9   9__  8 8    8_ -7__ -7_ -7_   7______
Gold was just a wind-y_ Kan_-sas wheat-field__

-7_  -7  -7_  -7  6__ 6_  -6  -5_ 6_____
Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer sky.__

 -7   -7_ -7 -7_  -7__ 6_   -6_ 4_  6________
(And) so_ he came to__ live at_ our house____

-5  -6__ -8   -6_ -5_  5   -3_________
And he__ came to_ work the land_______

-8 -8_  -8_ -8_  8__ 7   -6   4_  6________
He came to_ ease my_ dad-dy’s bur-den______

-5  -6__ -7   -6_ -5__ -4*_ 5_________
And he__ came to_ be__ my__ friend.___

-7 -7__ -7 -7_   -7   6_   -6_ 4__ 6_______
And so_  I wrote this down for Mat-thew____

-5 -5_   -6_ -7_ -6_  -5   -7_ -3_________
And it’s for him this song is_ sung_______

-7_ -7  -7_ -7_ 6   -6__ 4_    6________
Rid-in’ on_ his dad-dy’s shoul-ders_____

-5 -5_ -6 -7_  -6 -5_   -4* 5___
