[D]    [G]    [C]    [G]    
[D]    [G]    [C]    [G]    
He had a s[D]troke in '9[G]5  
They thought it b[D]est that he res[G]ide, in a nursing home[D]    [G]    [C]    [G]    
The family v[D]owed they'd never l[G]eave him
The last t[D]ime they came to s[G]ee him, was three years ago[D]    [G]    
He spent his w[D]hole life pro[G]vidin'
Now he was d[D]own to re[G]lyin’, on Medicar[D]e   [G]    [C]    [G]    
The nurses t[D]ook a liking [G]to him
They'd get his wh[D]eelchair out and p[G]ush him, on sunny day[D]s   [G]    
He couldn't w[A]alk, he couldn't speak, seemed [C]so far out of reach
But in his m[G]ind as far as they knew he could [A]be  

F[D]ly f[G]ishin', workin' [D]on that firebird e[G]ngine
Runnin' [D]99 proof m[G]oonshine across that c[D]ounty line[G]    
3,2,[D]1 and ign[G]ition, off on s[D]ome space shuttle m[G]ission
Playin' [D]QB for the C[G]owboys, gettin' h[D]igh on the c[G]rowd noise
And the b[A]right lights
Cause deep ins[C]ide things were rockin' in the m[A]ind  
Of John J. Bl[D]anchard [G]    [D]    [G]    

One a[D]fternoon in J[G]une  
A nurse s[D]aw his finger m[G]ove, about had a he[D]art attack [G]    [C]    [G]    
She went sc[D]reamin' down the h[G]all  
Hey, it's a m[D]iracle ya[G]'ll, I think he's comin' [D]back [G]    
The d[A]octors all rushed in, said do you k[C]now what year this is
How many fi[G]ngers am I holding and where've you be[A]en.  [Asus4]...       [Asus4]    

and he said

F[D]ly f[G]ishin', workin' [D]on that firebird e[G]ngine
Runnin' [D]99 proof m[G]oonshine across that c[D]ounty line[G]    
3,2,[D]1 and ign[G]ition, off on s[D]ome space shuttle m[G]ission
Playin' [D]QB for the C[G]owboys, gettin' h[D]igh on the c[G]rowd noise
And the b[A]right lights
Yeah all this t[C]ime things were rockin' in the m[A]ind  
Of John J. Bl[D]anchard

Capo 2



He had a stroke in '95
They thought it best that he reside, in a nursing home
The family vowed they'd never leave him
The last time they came to see him, was three years ago
He spent his whole life providin'
Now he was down to relyin’, on Medicare
The nurses took a liking to him
They'd get his wheelchair out and push him, on sunny days
He couldn't walk, he couldn't speak, seemed so far out of reach
But in his mind as far as they knew he could be

Fly fishin', workin' on that firebird engine
Runnin' 99 proof moonshine across that county line
3,2,1 and ignition, off on some space shuttle mission
Playin' QB for the Cowboys, gettin' high on the crowd noise
And the bright lights
Cause deep inside things were rockin' in the mind
Of John J. Blanchard

One afternoon in June
A nurse saw his finger move, about had a heart attack
She went screamin' down the hall
Hey, it's a miracle ya'll, I think he's comin' back
The doctors all rushed in, said do you know what year this is
How many fingers am I holding and where've you been....

and he said

Fly fishin', workin' on that firebird engine
Runnin' 99 proof moonshine across that county line
3,2,1 and ignition, off on some space shuttle mission
Playin' QB for the Cowboys, gettin' high on the crowd noise
And the bright lights
Yeah all this time things were rockin' in the mind
Of John J. Blanchard


He had a stroke in '95
They thought it best that he reside, in a nursing home
