He was his fa_-ther’s on_-ly boy._______

-5_  -5_  -5__  -5 4_  -4_ 2_  4_
Born just south of Col-by, Kan-sas

-3 -3  -4_ -5   -4_  -3_   4_  4__
He was his moth-er’s pride and joy.

-4   -5__ 7__ 7   -6*_ -5 6__   6    -5 -5_ -5__   4______
Yes, and_ joy was just a  thing that he was raised on_____

-5__ -5  -5_ -5 4__ 4  4    -5__ -4_______
Love was just a way to live and_ die______

7__  7   7__  6 6    6_ -5__ -5_ -5_   5______
Gold was just a wind-y_ Kan_-sas wheat-field__

-5_  -5  -5_  -5  4__ 4_  -4  -3_ 4_____
Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer sky.__

-5_ -5 -5_  -5__ 4_   -4_ 2_   4________
All the sto-ries that he_ told me_______

-3   -4__ -6 -4_ -3_  3 -1_________
Back when  I was just a lad________

All the mem-‘ries that he gave me_______

-3  -4__ -5   -4_   -3__ -2*_ 3_________
All the_ good times that he__ had.______

Grow-in’ up_  a Kan-sas farm boy_____

-3_  -4_ -5_  -4_ -3  -4_ -1_________
Life is_ most-ly_ hav-in’ fun________

-5_ -5  -5_ -5_ 4   -4__ 2_    4________
Rid-in’ on_ his dad-dy’s shoul-ders_____

-3 -3_  -4 -5_  -4 -3_   -2* 3___
Be-hind  a mule be-neath the sun.

-4   -5__ 7__ 7   -6*_ -5 6__   6    -5 -5_ -5__   4______
Yes, and_ joy was just a thing that he was raised on______

Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer sky.________

-5_  -5 -5_   -5__  4_   -4_  2_   4________
Well, I guess there were some hard times____

-3  -4__ -6   -4_  -3_   3    -1_________
And I’m_ told some years were lean_______

-6   -6_ -6_ -6_   -6__  5   -4 2_  4________
They had  a_ storm in__ ‘for-ty sev-en_______

-3 -3   -4__ -5   -4_ -3__      -2*_ 3_________
 A twist-er_ came and stripped ‘em__ clean.____

-5 -5__ -5  -5_ -5   4_   -4_ 2__  4_______
He lost the farm and lost his fam-‘ly______

-3 -3_  -4_ -5_   -4_ -3   -4_ -1_________
He lost the wheat and lost his home_______

-5_ -5 -5_   -5_ 4   -4__ 2_ 4________
But he found the fam-‘ly_ Bi-ble______

-3 -3_   -4 -5_ -4 -3_ -2* 3___
 A faith as sol-id as_  a  stone.

-4   -5__ 7__ 7   -6*_ -5 6__   6    -5 -5_ -5__   4______
Yes, and_ joy was just a  thing that he was raised on_____

 -5   -5_ -5 -5_  -5__ 4_   -4_ 2_  4________
(And) so_ he came to__ live at_ our house____

-3  -4__ -6   -4_ -3_  3   -1_________
And he__ came to_ work the land_______

-6 -6_  -6_ -6_  6__ 5   -4   2_  4________
He came to_ ease my_ dad-dy’s bur-den______

-3  -4__ -5   -4_ -3__ -2*_ 3_________
And he__ came to_ be__ my__ friend.___

-5 -5__ -5 -5_   -5   4_   -4_ 2__ 4_______
And so_  I wrote this down for Mat-thew____

-3 -3_   -4_ -5_ -4_  -3   -4_ -1_________
And it’s for him this song is_ sung_______

-5_ -5  -5_ -5_ 4   -4__ 2_    4________
