These Old Bones
Written & Recorded by Dolly Parton

Intro.:  (D) x 2 bars

These old (D)bones will tell your story, these old (A)bones will never (D)lie
These old bones will tell you surely what you can't (G)see with your (D)eye
These old bones, I shake and rattle, these old (A)bones, I toss and (D)roll
And it's all in where they scatter, tells you (G)what the (A)future (D)holds

Oh, she (D)lived up on the mountain eleven (A)miles or so from (D)town
With a one-eyed cat named Wink, a billy (G)goat and a blue tick (D)hound
Her graying hair was braided and (A)wrapped around her (D)head
And her dress was long and faded, and her (G)home a (A)rusty (D)shed

In a (D)little pouch of burlap tied with a (A)piece of (D)twine
There were bones all shapes and sizes, gathered (G)through the course of (D)time
She'd throw them out before you, she (A)swore that she could (D)see
The present, past and future, she could (G)ready your (A)desti-(D)ny

Every-(D)body knew about her, came to (A)get their fortune (D)read
Concerning health and wealth and power, who to (G)love and when to (D)wed
Well, I just like helpin' people, I'm just (A)glad that I could (D)help
Why, I know everybody's secrets, but I (G)keep it (A)to my-(D)self

(Chorus)
These old (D)bones will tell your story, these old (A)bones will never (D)lie
These old bones will tell you surely what you can't (G)see with your (D)eye
These old bones, I shake and rattle, these old (A/E)bones, I (A)toss and (D)roll
And it's all in where they scatter, tells you (G)what the (A)future (D)holds

Some (D)called her witchy woman, some (A)said she was in-(D)sane
Some said she was a prophet, still (G)everybody (D)came
Just because a body's different, well, (A)that don't make 'em (D)mad
Well, they've crucified a many for the (G)special (A)gifts they've (D)had

I had (D)often heard about her, dreamed a-(A)bout her now and (D)then
For I, too, was clairvoyant, came a-(G)bout when I was (D)ten
I was fascinated with her, and the (A)things I'd heard a-(D)bout
And I knew some day I'd meet her, and one (G)day (A) it came a-(D)bout

Well, I (D)know'd that you 'uz a'comin', I could (A)feel it in my (D)bones
These old bones have also told me that I (G)won't be here for (D)long
Did you know that you 'uz adopted, did you (A)know you once't was (D)mine?
But the county took you from me, said (G)I wasn't (A)right in (D)mind

But I just (D)know'd I had to see you 'fore these (A)bones was laid to (D)rest
So I conjured up a message, it (G)must'a worked, I (D)guess
This gift runs in the family, I (A)know you also (D)know
And I passed this gift on to you, these old (G)bones, (A)they're just for (D)show

(Chorus)
These old (D)bones will tell your story, these old (A)bones will never (D)lie
These old bones will tell you surely how to (G)live and when you'll (D)die
These old bones I shake and rattle, these old (A)bones I toss and (D)roll
And it's all in where they scatter tells you (G)what the (A)future (D)holds

I held her (D)hand while she was dyin' and (A)with the funeral (D)through
I headed on back up the mountain for (G)Billy, Wink and (D)Blue
And that little pouch of burlap with those (A)bones so worn and (D)old
She give me somethin' special, now (G)every (A)time I (D)throw

(Chorus)
These old (D)bones will tell your story, these old (A)bones will never (D)lie
These old bones will tell you surely what you can't (G)see with your (D)eye
These old bones I shake and rattle, these old (A/E)bones I (A)toss and (D)roll
And it's all in how they scatter, tells you (G)what the (A)future (D)holds

(Ending chorus)
These old (D)bones, these old (A)bones, (D) these old bones, (G)these (A)old (D)bones
These old bones, these old (A)bones, (D) these old bones, (G)these old (D)bones
These old (D)bones, these old (A)bones, (D) these old bones, (G)these (A)old (D)bones
These old bones, these old (A)bones, (D) these old bones, (G)these old (D)bones
These old (D)bones, these old (A)bones, (D) these old bones, (G)these (A)old (D)bones ---

(Talking on the ending chorus)
Now I can't tell you what you want to hear, I just tell you what I see
It's these old bones a'talkin', blame it on them, don't pack it on me
It's just like that time that there boy died up at the sawmill
Well, I know'd who done it, but I never said
And I know'd when somebody is a-cheatin'
Or when somebody's baby was gonna be born dead
But unless somebody just plain out and asked me
Well, I just figured there ain't no point goin' around actin' like you know everything
Just 'cause you might
Ah, you know, girl, I want you to take these bones
'Cause I don't want no young'un of mine a'going around unprepared
You just remember that the magic is inside you
There ain't no crystal ball
