I had an uncle name of Matthew...he was his father's only boy
                          Gm       C                              F
Born just south of Colby, Kansas...he was his mother's pride and joy
                           F                 A#           Gm
   CHORUS:  Yes, and joy was just the thing he was raised on
         C                              F A# F
   Love was just a way to live and die
                         A#             Gm
   Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field
          C              A#             F
   Blue was just a Kansas summer sky
                             Gm    C                        F
And all the stories that he told me back when I was just a lad
                          Gm       C                           F
All the memories that he gave me...all the good times that he had
                     Gm       C                       F
Growin' up a Kansas farmboy...life was mostly havin' fun
                        Gm      C                           F
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders behind a mule, beneath the sun
   CHORUS
                               Gm        C                             F
Well, I guess there were some hard times and I'm told some years were lean
                     Gm   C                               F
They had a storm in '47...twister came and stripped 'em clean
                               Gm                    C                 F
He lost the farm and lost his family...he lost the wheat, he lost his home
                         Gm   C                         F
But he found the family bible and faith as solid as a stone
   CHORUS
                       Gm         C                        F
So he came to live at our house...and he came to work the land
                            Gm     C                      F
He came to ease my daddy's burdens and he came to be my friend
                           Gm      C                          F
So I wrote this down for Matthew...it's for him this song is sung
                        Gm      C                           F
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders behind a mule, beneath the sun
