Intro: AmAm chord
Texas, Texas, Texas

Verse 1:
AmAm chord                    CC chord                   
Came into this world, daddy's little girl
    GG chord                           FF chord
And daddy made a soldier out of me -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
AmAm chord                       CC chord                 
Daddy made me dance, and daddy held my hand -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
    GG chord                               FF chord
And daddy liked his whisky with his tea
    AmAm chord                   CC chord                       
And we rode motorcycles, blackjack, classic vinyl
GG chord                           FF chord
Tough girl is what I had to be

Pre-Chorus 1:
        AmAm chord                        CC chord                        
He said take care of your mother, watch out for your sister
GG chord                         FF chord
Oh that's when he gave to me

Chorus 1:
         AmAm chord                             CC chord      
With his gun and his head held high, he told me not to cry
                 GG chord                       AmAm chord
Oh my daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot
         AmAm chord                          CC chord
With his right hand on his rifle, he swore it on the bible
              GG chord                       AmAm chord
My daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot
   AmAm chord                          CC chord
He held me in his arms, and he taught me to be strong
   GG chord                                      FF chord    
He told me when he's gone, here's what to do
     AmAm chord                             CC chord
When trouble comes to town, and men like me come around
                 GG chord                       AmAm chord
Oh my daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot

AmAm chord
  -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
AmAm chord                      CC chord                  
Daddy made me fight, it wasn't always right
    GG chord                              FF chord
But he said girl it's your second amendment -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
   AmAm chord                         CC chord                
He always played it cool, but daddy was no fool
    GG chord                              FF chord    
And right before he died he said remember

Pre-Chorus 2:
   AmAm chord                             CC chord                         
He said take care of your mother, watch out for your sister 
GG chord                           FF chord
That's when daddy looked at me

Chorus 2:
         AmAm chord                             CC chord      
With his gun and his head held high, he told me not to cry
                 GG chord                       AmAm chord
Oh my daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot
         AmAm chord                          CC chord
With his right hand on his rifle, he swore it on the bible
              GG chord                       AmAm chord
My daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot
      AmAm chord                          CC chord
Cause he held me in his arms, and he taught me to be strong
       GG chord                                      FF chord    
And he told me when he's gone, here's what to do
     AmAm chord                             CC chord
When trouble comes to town, and men like me come around
                 GG chord                       AmAm chord
