My Old Man chords Guitar Chords By John Denver

Intro: C Am G C 
           Em   Am            G
My old man had a rounder's soul
He'd hear an old freight train
C
Then he'd have to go
                       Em    Am        G
Said he'd been blessed with a gypsy bone
That's the reason they guessed
C
He'd been cursed to roam
               Em  Am            G 
Came into town back before the war
Didn't even know what it was
C
He was looking for
                    Em    Am        G 
Carried a tattered bag for his violin
It was full of lots of songs
   C
Of places that he'd been
                   Em  Am                G 
He talked real eeaassy, had a smiling way
To pass along to you
C
When his fiddle played
              Em        Am             G 
Making people drop their cares and woes
To hum out loud those tunes
C
That his fiddle howled
                  Em  Am                      G 
Till the people there began to join that sound
And everyone in town was laughing
C
Singing, dancing round
                   Em
Like the fiddler's tune
    Am                        G 
Was all they heard that night
As if some dream said
 C 
"All the world is right"
               Em           Am            G
His fiddler's eye caught one beauty there
She had that rollin', flowin'
C
Golden kind of hair
                  Em     Am              G 
He played for her as if she danced alone
Played his favorite songs
C
Ones he called his own
                  Em       Am          G 
He played until she was the last to go
Stopped and packed his case
C
And said he'd take her home

Em  Am        
G    C 

                      Em     Am            G 
All the nights that passed a child was born
All the years that passed
     C
That love would keep them warm
                         Em     Am            G 
All their lives they'd share a dream come true
All because she danced
C
While his fiddle tuned
           Em   Am             G 
My old man had a rounder's soul
He'd hear an old freight train
  C 
Then he'd have to go
               Em     Am                   G 
All that I recall said when I was so young
There's no one else could really
C
Sing those songs he sung
