Norman Blake - Grandpas Barn
Verse C Am F G Like a battle worn shoulder, its faithfully stood C Am F G A modest creation, built mostly of wood C Am F G But time and neglect, they've taken their toll F G F C And now grandpa's barn, stands forgotten and old. C Am F G The roof has turned brown, from the rust on the tin C Am F G Any day now the whole thing, could come tumbling in C Am F G The hinges have rusted, on the big oaken doors F G F C And johnson grass grows through, the cracks in the boards. Verse C Am F G In the mainger hangs single trees, harness and such C Am F G Where he left them there covered, with cobwebs and dust C Am F G There's his old slick fork saddle, he was once a cowboy F G F C It's a shame what the years and the mice will destroy. C Am F G There's a chill in the loft now, its silent and stale C Am F G Where grand children play, in sweet clover bails C Am F G Where raindrops were lullabies, on dark stormy days F G F C For little girls and kittens, asleep in the hay. C Am F G I remember the sound, of an old man's laughter C Am F G But now all I hear, is the wind in the rafters C Am F G And it speaks of a sadness, that times passing brings F G F C And makes faded old memories and tobacco juice stains. Verse C Am F G But old barns they vanish, like castles of sand C Am F G Their glory fades quickly, like youth from a man C Am F G For a season they'll bloom, shinning fruits of his toll F G F C Then in times deadly grip, they crumble back into soil. C Am F G Abandoned it stands, like ancient grey ghost C Am F G Surrounded by weeds and rotten fence posts C Am F G Its a bitter sweet relic, of an old man and his farm F G F I close the gate for the last time, as I leave grandpa's C barn.
