Bobs Got A Swing Band In Heaven Song

Song Author Red Steagall Performer: Red Steagall Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]They thrilled all the folks down in [C]Texas
And then [D7]Oklahoma heard their western [G]swing
The miles folks traveled made no [C]difference
Cause they [D7]came to dance and hear those fiddles [G]sing

They took their songs to the coast of [C]California
And then [D7]New York City heard their fiddles [G]cry  
The world will not forget the Texas [C]Playboys
Cause the [D7]songs they played and sang will never [G]die  

And now Bob's got a swing band in [C]heaven
And they [D7]play while Sleepy's banjo [G]rings
The Lord said Bob I've brought you Keith and [C]Jesse
Now they [D7]fiddle while old Tommy Duncan [G]sings

Bob's got a swing band in [C]heaven
And they [D7]play while Sleepy's banjo [G]rings
The Lord said Bob I've brought you Keith and [C]Jesse
They play [D7]Faded Love while Tommy Duncan [G]sings

Spoken:
There's a steel guitar with silver strings for [D7]Leon   
A piano's there for Al with golden [G]keys
The rims of Smokey's drums are made with [C]halos
And [G]there's a bow with angel [D7]hair for Johnny [G]Lee  

Our band is not complete without a [C]bass man
Oh [D7]how Joe Franks bass fills all the [G]holes
The angels love to sing with Elvin's [C]sweet guitar
And [G]Gimble's fiddle waits [D7]beside the [G]throne


They thrilled all the folks down in Texas
And then Oklahoma heard their western swing
The miles folks traveled made no difference
Cause they came to dance and hear those fiddles sing

They took their songs to the coast of California
And then New York City heard their fiddles cry
The world will not forget the Texas Playboys
Cause the songs they played and sang will never die

And now Bob's got a swing band in heaven
And they play while Sleepy's banjo rings
The Lord said Bob I've brought you Keith and Jesse
Now they fiddle while old Tommy Duncan sings

Bob's got a swing band in heaven
And they play while Sleepy's banjo rings
The Lord said Bob I've brought you Keith and Jesse
They play Faded Love while Tommy Duncan sings

Spoken:
There's a steel guitar with silver strings for Leon
A piano's there for Al with golden keys
The rims of Smokey's drums are made with halos
And there's a bow with angel hair for Johnny Lee

Our band is not complete without a bass man
Oh how Joe Franks bass fills all the holes
The angels love to sing with Elvin's sweet guitar
And Gimble's fiddle waits beside the throne
