Old Porch Swing

Höfundur lags: Joe Allen og Charlie Williams Flytjandi: Gene Watson Sent inn af: Anonymous
[C]Its hung there on the front porch

Since this old house was built
Its [G7]where the old men whittle
And the women fleece their [C]quilts

Its held four generations
Through whatever life could bring [F]    
That old [G7]swing  that old porch [C]swing

[C]It held a grieving widow

When my daddy's daddy died
And [G7]now it rocks my children
When they close their sleepy [C]eyes

It's where I popped the question
With a quarter karat ring [F]    
That old [G7]swing  that old porch [C]swing [C7]    

Its [F]been there through the sunshine
Its [C]had its share of rain
Been a [D7]witness to some good times
And a[G7]like amount of pain
If[C] it could tell its story
What a ballad it could sing [F]    
That old [G7]swing  that old porch [C]swing

[C]It's where brother read the letter

That sent him off to war
We [G7]knew he had to go and fight
But we didn't know what [C]for  

When he came home he just sat there
And never said a thing [F]    
In that [G7]swing  that old porch [C]swing

Its [F]been there through the sunshine
Its [C]had its share of rain
Been a [D7]witness to some good times
And a[G7]like amount of pain
If[C] it could tell its story
What a ballad it could sing [F]    
That old [G7]swing  that old porch [C]swing

Its hung there on the front porch

Since this old house was built
Its where the old men whittle
And the women fleece their quilts

Its held four generations
Through whatever life could bring
That old swing  that old porch swing

It held a grieving widow

When my daddy's daddy died
And now it rocks my children
When they close their sleepy eyes

It's where I popped the question
With a quarter karat ring
That old swing  that old porch swing

Its been there through the sunshine
Its had its share of rain
Been a witness to some good times
And alike amount of pain
If it could tell its story
What a ballad it could sing
That old swing  that old porch swing

It's where brother read the letter

That sent him off to war
We knew he had to go and fight
But we didn't know what for

When he came home he just sat there
And never said a thing
In that swing  that old porch swing

Its been there through the sunshine
Its had its share of rain
Been a witness to some good times
And alike amount of pain
If it could tell its story
What a ballad it could sing
That old swing  that old porch swing
