George Strait – “Amarillo By Morning (CRD-2)”

#
Subject: AMARILLO BY MORNING by GEORGE STRAIT (corrected version)

NOTES:
1) “x2″ means chord lasts for 2 beats, “x4″ = 4 beats

2) Any chord listed without any “x2″, or similar, lasts one beat
e.g.: “D, F#min” means D gets one beat, then F#min gets one beat.

3) This chord chart is submitted as a corrected version of the chart
currently available in the COWPIE ARCHIVE. Look at the turnaround
section before the 3rd verse: I contend the harmonic structure is
based on a F#min7 -> B, the ii -> V chords in the key of Emaj. Emaj
is exactly where the key in the song lands at the 3rd verse. This is
a standard ii, V, –> I turnaround.
F#min7, B, –> Emaj

VERSE #1
Amarillo by mornin’ up from San Antone
Everything that I got is just what I got on
When that sun is high in that Texas sky
I’ll be buckin at the county fair

CHORUS #1
Amarillo by mornin’ Amarillo I’ll be there
Amarillo by mornin’ Amarillo’s on my mind

VERSE #2
They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Sante Fe
Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way
But I’ll be looking for eight when they pull that gate
and I hope that judge ain’t blind

CHORUS #2
Amarillo by mornin’ Amarillo I’ll be there
Amarillo by mornin’ Amarillo’s on my mind

VERSE #3
Amarillo by mornin’ up from San Antone
Everything that I got is just what I got on
I ain’t got a dime but what I got is mine
I ain’t rich but Lord I’m free

CHORUS #3
Amarillo by mornin’ Amarillo I’ll be there
Amarillo by mornin’ Amarillo’s on my mind
