This Old Grey Coat

	            G  
Well they gave me this old coat  
             C              G  
Said, "It'll keep you mighty warm.  
        C                   G  
It'll see you through the winter.  
          A         D  
It's your by God uniform."  
     G  
So, I wear it everyday  
      C              G  
And I sleep in it at night  
         C               G  
Now it's twenty shades of grey  
        A                    D  
And the waist is shrunk too tight  
        B                 Em  
And the bottom's caked and muddy  
        B                Em  
And the buttons are half gone  
    A    B            C  
But just like you and me  
     C#m                    D  
This Old Grey Coat wears on.  
  
Chorus:  
           G                B  
And when I die in this grey coat  
          Em                    A  
I'm gonna march though Heaven's door  
                           B  
I'm gonna walk up to Saint Peter  
              C                D  
And tell him, "Send me back for more."  
              G                 B  
Cause I'll be damned if I'll just sit around  
    Em               A  
While you boys win the war  
            G    B   Em  
Cause even when I'm dead  
              G   B    Em  
Shot full of Yankee lead  
          A       B        C       C#m  D (Stop)  
There's a part of me keeps hangin' by a thread  
                 G    C G C  
Of This Old Grey Coat.  
  
       G  
When I think of all the places  
         C                G  
This old coat and me have been  
            C                G  
Through the fat and lean and in-between  
       A                      D  
Double-quick through thick and thin  
         G  
From the ballrooms down in Richmond  
       C             G  
To the top of Marye's Heights  
     C              G  
From Manasas to The Wilderness  
      A             D  
And a hundred other fights  
        B                Em  
Now the collar's torn and tattered  
        B                  Em  
And the elbow's worn clean through  
    A      B    C      
But, buddy, in a pinch   
     C#m      D  
This Old Grey Coat will do.  
  
           G                B  
And when I die in this grey coat  
              Em           A  
And when they come to bury me  
                          B  
They commenc to speech-a-fyin'  
    C                    D  
And singin' "Nearer, Lord, to Thee" 
             G                 B  
Well be damn sure I ain't just sleepin'  
        Em             A            
Cause I flat out guarantee   
           G    B   Em  
That even when I'm dead  
              G   B    Em  
Shot full of Yankee lead  
         A        B             C     C#m   D    (Stop)                                        
That the toughest part lives on in every shred  
                 G    C G C  
Of This Old Grey Coat.  
  
              G   B  Em  
Well you can cut my throat  
         G    B  Em  
You can sink my bones  
    A       B     C             C#m       D   
But you can never stop This Old Grey Coat.  
  
        G     B  Em  
When my bones you tote  
             G   B   Em  
When that's all she wrote  
A          B    C             C#m       D   
I'll fight on inside This Old Grey Coat.  
  
Chorus2:  
           G                B  
And when I die in this grey coat  
          Em                    A  
I'm gonna march though Heaven's door  
                           B  
I'm gonna walk up to Saint Peter  
              C                D  
And tell him, "Send me back for more."  
              G                 B  
Cause I'll be damn if I'll just sit around  
    Em               A  
While you boys win the war  
            G    B   Em  
Cause even when I'm dead  
              G   B    Em  
Shot full of Yankee' lead  
            A       B        C      C#m    D (Stop)  
There ain't nothin' that I'd rather wear instead  
                   G    C  
Of This Old Grey Coat.  
  
              G    C  
This Old Grey Coat  
        G    C  
I'll go down  
                 G    C  
In This Old Grey Coat  
              G    F C G  
This Old Grey Coat.
