Four Poster Bed

Höfundur lags: Shel Silverstein Flytjandi: Brenda Lee Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]It was just some boards of rough cut pine
And a quilt of patch work [G]cotton

A place to lay your body down
Was that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


Daddy built it out of pine
Two [C]days before the [G]wedding

They say the neighbors cheered and hollered
[A7]Till his face got [D7]red   

And [G]Mama brought the feather pillows
[C]And some handmade [G]bedding

And they spent their wedding night
In that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


That night they swore like that bed
Their [C]love would last [G]forever

And they'd ask no more of life
Than[A7] the simple things they [D7]had   

So [G]they planed there future
As [C]they laid close to[G]gether

And later I was born there
In that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  

It was [C]just some boards of rough cut pine
And a quilt of patch work [G]cotton
A [C]place to lay your [G]body down
A [A7]place to rest your [D7]head   

[C]A field of fluffy mountains
For a little girl to [G]hide in

Clouds and chasing rainbows
Was that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


I remember as a child waking up
[C]On a winter [G]morning

With Sound of laughing voices
And [A7]the smell of baking [D7]bread

And [G]running across that coal wood floor
[C]Jumping there with [G]them

And Lord I felt so safe and warm
In that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


The day that daddy died
He [C]whispered something soft to [G]mama

To this day she's never told a soul
[A7]The words he [D7]said   

She [G]just smiled through her tears
And [C]held his hand and [G]nodded

And my daddy looked so much at rest
In that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


Now time has dried up all the tears
[C]Here I stand a [G]woman

Your arms reach out to touch my soul
Your [A7]sweet words turn my [D7]head   

Darling [G]won't you tell me first
[C]This will be [G]forever

Before you lead me up the stairs
To that [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


Cause only love has ever touched
That [D7]big four poster [G]bed  


It was just some boards of rough cut pine
And a quilt of patch work cotton

A place to lay your body down
Was that big four poster bed

Daddy built it out of pine
Two days before the wedding

They say the neighbors cheered and hollered
Till his face got red

And Mama brought the feather pillows
And some handmade bedding

And they spent their wedding night
In that big four poster bed

That night they swore like that bed
Their love would last forever

And they'd ask no more of life
Than the simple things they had

So they planed there future
As they laid close together

And later I was born there
In that big four poster bed

It was just some boards of rough cut pine
And a quilt of patch work cotton
A place to lay your body down
A place to rest your head

A field of fluffy mountains
For a little girl to hide in

Before you lead me up the stairs
To that big four poster bed

Cause only love has ever touched
That big four poster bed
