Old Army Hat Recorded by Bill Anderson Written by Bill Anderson and Walt Aldridge
C Dm He came home to Tennessee a young man at the end of forty-five G7 C Only one of seven men in his platoon that made it back alive
He must have seen some tough times Dm But he never talked too much about all of that G7 Put his pictures and his memories in the cedar chest Dm G7 C Everything but his old army hat
Dm By the time I graduated the winds of change had blown across our land G7 They were burning flags and draft cards C When they bothered to take some kind of stand
And we used to laugh at grandpa Dm Like he was some old relic from the past G7 Cause he never left the house less he was wearing Dm G7 C That funny looking worn out army hat
F C Every eye was on him anytime that he went anywhere G7 They whispered and they pointed C But you could tell that grandpa didn't care F C I ain't weaning this for them he said it's a whole lot more than that Dm G7 For my buddies who gave everything the least that I can do Dm G7 C Is keep on wearing this old army hat
Dm He called me up one morning said he'd seen it on the news on his tv G7 C They've opened up a monument to World War II in Washington D.C.
I ain't getting any younger Dm And I wish someone would take me to see that G7 I couldn't help but think their gonna laugh at you up there Dm G7 C If you show up in that silly army hat
Dm Two strangers both saluted as grandpa walked up to the monument G7 C One said thank you soldier for a job well done the other said amen Dm And a young boy said sir my daddy went to war and never made it back G7 Would you take a picture standing here beside me Dm G7 C And maybe let me wear your army hat
F C Every eye was on him and there was not a dry one in the crowd G7 They whispered and they pointed C And grandpa stood up extra tall and proud F He said son just keep it C When the young boy tried his best to give it back Dm G7 You're a brave little soldier son and every soldier needs Dm G7 C His very own authentic army hat
Dm G7 For your daddy who gave every thing the least that I can do Dm G7 C Is pass on this old worn out army hat
America the Beautiful Written by Katharine Lee Bates and Samuel Ward
C G7 Dm G7 C G7 O beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain C G7 D7 G7 For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain C G7 C America America God shed his grace on thee F C F G7 C And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea
F C F G7 C And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea
