San Antonio Stroll
recorded by Tanya Tucker
written Peter Noah

C                          D7
When I was a child down in South Caroline
           F        G7          C
Soon's the Saturday sun went on down
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone
                  G7              C
Going to that big square dance in town
        Am                        Em
Well my old radio would play that old opry show
     F         G7          C
So I never got lonesome or blue
          Am                              Em
I'd fall asleep in my chair and dream that I was right there
     D7                      G7
Just singing the whole night through

When my folks would come home
They'd be humming a song
       F             G7              Am
Mama'd smile and say child don't you know
There ain't a thing in this world to make you
C                 Am        D7     G7   C
Fall in love girl  like the San Antonio Stroll
Well the day finally come when my mama said hun
           F             G7         C
It's 'bout time you came with us as well
Well I had me a time yes I danced all the night
                         G7              C
Till they rang that old cracked midnight bell
Then the lights went down low
The fiddler picked up his bow
       F                  G7        C
And he played something stately and slow
       Am                   Em
And my sister Irene and her husband to be

          D7                 G7
They held hands and began to stroll
           C                      D7
I've been away for a while but it still brings a smile
       F            G7          Am
When I think of the way that it goes
         F                         C        A7
Now I'll sing it to you just so we both can do
         D7      G7  C
That old San Antonio Stroll
         F                         C        A7
Now I'll sing it to you just so we both can do
         D7     G7   C
That old San Antonio Stroll
