BRANTLEY GILBERT - One Hell Of An Amen

This song is from the album Just as I Am(2015), released on May 18, 2015.
I loved the powerful message in this song. The power of will and fighting the good fight is very inspiring to listen to. The slow tempo and the beautiful guitars made the song really interesting. The rhythm felt smooth and the bass flowed like water. Hats off to Brantley for this excellent song.

[INTRO] F# C# F# C# F# C# Absus4 Ab
[VERSE]
F#              C#
Preacher said he died too young
 F#         C#
Over there totin' that gun
 F#       C#           Absus4 Ab
For Uncle Sam and our freedom
F#              C#
Mom and Daddy dressed in black
F#          C#
They folded up that flag
F#            C#
Handed it to dad
          Absus4 Ab
Started prayin'
     Ebm                    F#
Yeah he went out 21 guns blazin'

[CHORUS]
            F#    C#        Ab
An' that's One Hell of an Amen
Ab                     F#
That's the only way to go
F#         C#
Fightin' the good fight
          Ab
Til the Good Lord calls you home
       F#   C#      Ab
And so be well my friend
        Bbm Ab   F#
Til' I see you again

But it's a Hell of an Amen, Amen

[VERSE]
F#               C#
Doctor said he ain't got long
F#                   C#
He just smiled said bring it on
F#                 C#
If you think I'm scared
            Ab
You got me all wrong
F#                C#
A little cancer can't break me
F#                    C#
My heart's right and I believe
F#              C#
We all hit our knees
        Ab
Started prayin'
          Ebm
Naw he never gave up
                 F#
Said the Good Lord's waitin'

That's the only way to go

Fightin' the good fight
          Ab
Til the Good Lord calls you home
