C Em F C
Amarillo by mornin', up from San Antone
(C) Em F G7
Everything that I got, is just what I've got on
F G7
When that sun is high in that Texas sky,
C Em F
I'll be buckin' at the county fair
C G F G7 C Em F G7
Amarillo by mornin', Amarillo I'll be there


C Em F C
They took m'saddle in Houston, broke my leg in, Sante Fe
(C) Em F G7
Lost my wife and a girlfriend, somewhere along the__ way
F G7
But I'll be lookin' for eight when they pull that gate
C Em F
and I hope that judge ain't blind
C G F G7 C Em F G7
Amarillo by mornin', Amarillo's on my mind
