Old Porch Swing chords - Gene Watson

            OLD PORCH SWING - Gene Watson

(G)It's hung there on the front porch
Since this old house was built
It's(D)where the old men whittle
and the women fleece their(G)quilts
It's held four generations 
through whatever life could bring
That ol'(D)swing That ol' porch(G)swing

(G)It held a grieving widow
when my daddy's daddy died
and(D)now it rocks my children
when they close their sleepy(G)eyes
It's where I popped the question
with a quarter karot ring
That ol'(D)swing That ol' porch(G)swing(G7)

It's(C)been there through the sunshine 
It's(G)had it's share of rain
Been a(A)witness to some good times
and a(D)like amount of pain(D7)
If(G)it could tell it's story
What a ballad it could sing
That ol'(D)swing That ol' porch(G)swing (G)It's where brother read the letter that sent him off to war We(D)knew he had to go and fight but we didn't know what(G)for When he came home he just sat there and never said a thing In that(D)swing That ol' porch(G)swing (Repeat chorus) That ol'(D)swing That ol' porch(G)swing I would like to thank Ben Parrish for introducing me to this song. It tells such a beautiful story and Gene sings it so well. Tabby (tlcampbell@noble.org) [Thanks to Bobby Mo for corrections]
