Grandpa's Barn chords by Norman Blake

Norman Blake Chords

Capo up if you like.

C x32010
F x3321x

C                  AM            F          G           
Like a battle worn shoulder, its faithfully stood
  C        AM            F         G
A modest creation, built mostly of wood
    C         AM              F           G
But time and neglect, they've taken their toll
        F         G            F             C
And now grandpa's barn, stands forgotten and old.

C                   AM              F           G
The roof has turned brown, from the rust on the tin
    C           AM                      F        G
Any day now the whole thing, could come tumbling in
    C           AM             F         G
The hinges have rusted, on the big oaken doors
    F                   G            F             C 
And johnson grass grows through, the cracks in the boards.

C                    AM            F           G
In the mainger hangs single trees, harness and such
         C               AM            F           G
Where he left them there covered, with cobwebs and dust
            C              AM             F      G
There's his old slick fork saddle, he was once a cowboy
       F              G             F            C
It's a shame what the years and the mice will destroy.

C                      AM            F          G
There's a chill in the loft now, its silent and stale
      C              AM       F            G
Where grand children play, in sweet clover bails
      C              AM            F           G
Where raindrops were lullabies, on dark stormy days
    F                G         F            C
For little girls and kittens, asleep in the hay.

C              AM           F         G
I remember the sound, of an old man's laughter
    C         AM           F           G
But now all I hear, is the wind in the rafters
       C           AM            F             G
And it speaks of a sadness, that times passing brings
          F         G            F             C
And makes faded old memories and tobacco juice stains.

C                  AM           F          G
But old barns they vanish, like castles of sand
      C           AM            F            G
Their glory fades quickly, like youth from a man
      C              AM              F             G
For a season they'll bloom, shinning fruits of his toll
        F            G                  F         C
Then in times deadly grip, they crumble back into soil.

C            AM           F            G  
Abandoned it stands, like ancient grey ghost
C             AM        F            G
Surrounded by weeds and rotten fence posts
      C            AM           F               G
Its a bitter sweet relic, of an old man and his farm
            F            G               F               
I close the gate for the last time, as I leave grandpa's
