                     "He Walked on Water"

Words/Music by Allen Shamblin
Performed by Randy Travis


              D                  G/D
1. He wore starched white shirts buttoned at the neck,
         D                              A/E
and he'd sit in the shade and watch the chickens peck.
          D                  G/D
And his teeth were gone, but what the heck,
D              A            D      G  A
I thought that he walked on water.


      D                    G
2. He said he was a cowboy when he was young.
          D                        A
He could handle a rope and he was good with a gun.
    D                         G
And my mama's daddy was his oldest son,--
    D              A            D
and I thought that he walked on water.


CHORUS

                    G                   D
If the story's told,  only heaven knows.
                      A                D
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo.
D7                       G
  And although his wings,  they were never seen.
               A            D      G/A  A/C#
I thought that he walked on water.

        D                     G
3. Then he tied a cord to the end of a mop,
           D                    A
and said, "Son, here's a pony, keep her at a trot."
    D                                   G
And I'd ride in circles while he laughed  alot.
     D          A     D
Then I'd flop down beside him.

           Bm                  A
And he was ninety years old in sixty-three
    G               A
and I loved him and he loved me.
     G                   A
And lord, I cried the day  he died,
       D              A            D

'cause I thought that he walked on water.

About the artist behind He Walked On Water Chords:

Randy Travis (born Randy Bruce Traywick, May 4, 1959 in Marshville, North Carolina[1]) is an American multiple Grammy Award- and Dove Award-winning American country singer. Active since 1985, he has recorded more than a dozen studio albums to date, in addition to charting more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which sixteen of those singles have reached Number One.

Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music,[1] Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life on Warner Bros. Records; the album, which sold more than three million copies, made Travis the first country music act in history to achieve multi-platinum status. It also established him as a neotraditionalist country act, and was followed by a string of several more platinum and multi-platinum albums throughout his career. Starting in the mid-1990s, however, Travis saw decline in his chart success. He left Warner Bros. in 1997 for DreamWorks Records; there, he would eventually switch his focus to gospel music, a switch which — despite earning him only one more country hit in the Number One "Three Wooden Crosses" — earned him several Dove Awards.

Travis, in addition to singing, holds several acting credits, starting with his television special Wind in the Wire in 1992. Since then, he has appeared in several movie and television roles, occasionally as himself.
