 I had an un- cle_ name of  Mat-thew.____

He was his_ fa- ther’s on_-ly boy._______

-8_  -8_  -8__  -8 7_ -7_  5_  7_
Born just south of Col-by, Kan-sas

-6 -6  -7__ -8   -7_  -6_   6   6__
He was his_ moth-er’s pride and joy.

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

-8__ -8  -8_ -8 7__ 7  7    -8__ -7_______
Love was just a way to live and_ die______

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

-8__ -8  -8_  -8  7__ 7_  -7  -6__ 6_____
Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer_ sky.__

-8_ -8  -8_ -8__ 7_   -7_ 5_   7________
All the sto-ries that he_ told me_______

-6   -7_ -8_ -7_ -6_  6_ -4_________
Back when I  was just a  lad________

-8_ -8_ -8_  -8____ 7    -7 5__  7________
All the mem-‘ries__ that he gave me_______

All the_ good times that  he  had._______

-8_  -8  -8_ -8 7_  -7_ 5__  7_______
Grow-in’ up  a  Kan-sas farm boy_____

-6_  -7_ -8_ -7_ -6 -7__ -4_________
Life is  most-ly hav-in’ fun________

-8_ -8  -8__ -8_ 7  -7__  5_    7________
Rid-in’ on__ his dad-dy’s shoul-ders_____

-6 -6_ -7_ -8_  -7 -6_   5ob 6___
Be-hind a  mule be-neath the sun.

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

-8__ -8  -8_ -8 7____ 7  7    -8__ -7_______
Love was just a way__ to live and_ die______

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

-8__ -8  -8_  -8  7__ 7_  -7  -6__ 6_____
Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer_ sky.__

-8_  -8 -8_   -8__  7_   -7_  5_   7________
Well, I guess there were some hard times____

-6  -7_ -8_  -7_  -6_   6_   -4_________
And I’m told some years were lean_______

-8   -8_ -8_ -8_   -8____ 7    -7 5__ 7________
They had  a  storm in____ ‘for-ty sev-en_______

-6 -6   -7__ -8   -7_ -6__     5ob_ 6_________¬¬
 A twist-er_ came and stripped ‘em  clean.____

-8 -8_  -8  -8_  -8  7_   -7_ 5__ 7_______
He lost the farm and lost his fam-‘ly_____

-6 -6_  -7_ -8_   -7_ -6   -7__ -4_________
He lost the wheat and lost his_ home_______

-8_ -8 -8__  -8_ 7  -7__ 5_ 7________
But he found the fam-‘ly Bi-ble______

-6 -6_   -7_ -8_ -7 -6_ 5ob 6___
 A faith as  sol-id as_  a  stone.

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

-8__ -8  -8_ -8 7____ 7  7    -8__ -7_______

Blue was just the Kan-sas sum-mer_ sky.__

 -8   -8_ -8 -8_  -8__ 7_   -7_ 5_  7________
(And) so_ he came to__ live at_ our house____

-6  -7_ -8_  -7_ -6_  6_  -4_________
And he_ came to_ work the land_______

-8 -8_  -8_ -8_  -8__ 7   -7   5__ 7________
He came to_ ease my__ dad-dy’s bur-den______

-6  -7__ -8   -7_ -6__ 5ob_ 6_________¬¬
And he__ came to_ be__  my  friend.___

-8 -8_ -8 -8_   -8   7_   -7_ 5__ 7_______
And so I  wrote this down for Mat-thew____

-6 -6_   -7_ -8_ -7_  -6   -7__ -4_________
And it’s for him this song is__ sung_______

-8_ -8 -8__ -8_ 7   -7__ 5_    7________
Rid-in’ on_ his dad-dy’s shoul-ders_____

-6 -6_ -7_ -8_  -7 -6_   5ob 6___
