Intro: Am
Texas, Texas, Texas

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

Pre-Chorus 1:
        Am                        C                        
He said take care of your mother, watch out for your sister
G                         F
Oh that's when he gave to me

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

Verse 2:
Am
  -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
Am
  -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
Am                      C                  
Daddy made me fight, it wasn't always right
    G                              F
But he said girl it's your second amendment -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
   Am                         C                
He always played it cool, but daddy was no fool
    G                              F    
And right before he died he said remember

Pre-Chorus 2:
   Am                             C                         
He said take care of your mother, watch out for your sister 
G                           F
That's when daddy looked at me

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

Outro:
         Am                                    C         
My daddy warned me about men like you, he said baby girl 
             G                 Am
He's playing you, he's playing you -ooh ooh-ooh-ooh-
         Am                                    C         
My daddy warned me about men like you, he said baby girl 
             G                 Am
He's playing you, he's playing you -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
           Am                             C
Cause when trouble comes in town, and men like me come around
                 G                       F
Oh my daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot -ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-
           Am                             C
Cause when trouble comes in town, and men like me come around
                 G                       Am
Oh my daddy said shoot, oh my daddy said shoot
