San Antonio Stroll-crd

Tanya Tucker

 GA
 When I was a child down in South Caroline
 CDGD
Soon's the Saturday sun went on down 
 GA
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone
 CDG
Going to that big square dance in town
 EmBm
Well my old radio would play that old opry show
 AmDG
So I never got lonesome or blue
 EmBm
I'd fall asleep in my chair and dream that I was right there
 AmAD
Just singing the whole night through
 G
When my folks would come home
 A
They'd be humming a song
 CDEm
Mama'd smile and say, "Child, don't you know,
 C
there ain't a thing in this world to make you
 GEmADGD
 fall in love girl, like the San Antonio Stroll"
Same as intro, except twice--- A, B, D, E, A, E
 GA
Well the day finally come when my mama said, hun
 CDGD
It's 'bout time you came with us as well 
 GA
Well I had me a time, yes I danced all the night
 CDG
Til they rang that ol' crack-midnight bell
 Em
Then the lights went down low
 Bm
The fiddler picked up his bow
 AmDG
And he played something steady and slow
 EmBm
And my sister Irene and her husband to be
 AmAD
They held hands and began to stroll
 GD
I've been away for a while, but it still brings a smile
 CDEm
When I think of the way that it goes
 CGEm
Now I'll sing it to you just so we both can do
 ADGD
That old San Antonio Stroll 
(instrumental--exactly like intro, except twice. Also, for the
mandolin, instead of ending on the note A, end on F#)
(chords for instrumental are: A, B, D, E, A, E, A, B, D, E, F#m)
 CGEm
Yes I'll sing it to you just so we all can do
 ADG
That old San Antonio Stroll
