Tributes to Chet

YouTube Videos

Life of Chet    LIfe of Chet 1   Life of Chet 2   Life of Chet 3

There's a lot of redundancy in those vids, however all worth a watch for the true Chet Atkins fan.

Terje Tangen - a fan from Norway


         God looked around his garden and found an empty space,

          He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.  

          He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest,

          Godís garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best.  

          He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain,

          He knew you might never get well upon this earth again.  

          He saw the roads were getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb,

          so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered " Peace be thine "  

          It broke our hearts to lose you, but you never went alone,

          because part of us went with you the day God called you home.
