The Big Sky 3-20-2020
Verse 1
A Em/A
He sailed out of Boston
Dadd9/A A
Down to Chesapeake Bay
A Em/A
Rolled out of Richmond
Dadd9/A Em/A A
After a couple of days
A Em/A
Ended up in Texas
Dadd9/A A
Joined a cattle drive
A Em/A
Alone on the range
Dadd9/A Em/A A
He planned to spend the rest of his life.
Bridge
Fmaj7/A Em7/A A
He left Boston with no reason to stay
Fmaj7/A Em7/A A
After the angels came and took his love away.

Verse 2
Old man Murphy
Pulled a shift in the mine
Wasn’t supposed to be there
It wasn’t his time
He left a pretty widow
In the house by Flathead Lake
Along come that cowboy
The Angels showing him the way.

She gave him a reason to stay
Up in the Big Sky country they’d start again.

Chorus
A A/C
Up in the Big Sky
G G/B
Where Angels fly
D/F# D/A A D
Your home to stay
A A/C
Land of the Big Sky
G G/B
Dry your eyes
D/F# D/A Fmaj7 Gadd9
You’ll find a way.





Instrumental Part: (x4) Fmaj7 Gadd9 A D


Verse 3
The cowboy started out
On the Emerald Isle
Ended up in Boston
Wore a badge for a while
Wandered with the doggies
In his time out on the range
Till he found the Big Sky country
Where he’d live out his days.

Angels would give and take along the way
The Big Sky country is their Heaven today.

Up in the Big Sky
Where Angels fly
Your home to stay
Land of the Big Sky
Dry your eyes
You’ll find a way.
