Intro : A -E - A
Instrumental (Solo Over Full First Verse)
(A) Here’s a tape...for you to play,
while I can still fog a (E) mirror.
You can play it...again and again,
when I am no longer (A) here.
(A) They’re just little ditties,
(A7) Just me and my (D) banjo.
They’re all here (A) for ‘ya,
little (E) stories...you should (A) know.
(A) There’s a song about my mom and dad.
God rest their (E) souls.
Songs of Illinois,
where we made our (A) home.
(A) There’s songs that make me cry,
(A7) when I hear the melo-(D )-dy.
And I saved them (A) for ‘ya,
on this (E) tape...of memo-(A)-ries.
Instrumental: Banjo (Over Verse)
(A) God gave me many things.
He’s blessed me all my (E) life.
So when the angels call me,
well...it will be all (A) right.
(A) So when you get the urge,
(A7) and you find the (D) time.
Play a little (A) tune or two,
(E) when grandpa’s on your (A) mind.
(D) Just play a little (A) tune or two,
(E) when I’m on your (A) mind.
