Beethoven Was Before My Time Recorded by Moe Bandy Written by Jerry Dycke
G C G One night while I was playin' at place called The Big Still C G This ole man came up and handed me a dollar bill C G Em He said I've got a favorite song please play it if you can Am D7 G It's by Jimmie Rogers that ole singin' brakeman
C G Well I said I didn't know the song but he kept buggin' me C G He said son are you sure cause it was big in '33 C G Em I said I'm sorry sir that was before I was around Am D7 G Then that old man said somethin' that really put me down
C G Beethoven was before my time but I still like his songs C G Don't you know a good thing just keeps on hangin' on C G Em If people liked it way back then well it can't be all wrong Am D7 G Beethoven was before my time but I still like his songs
C G Well years have come and gone since that old man passed my way C G But I've contemplated on the words he had to say C G Em Just last night I heard this man a singin' at a bar Am D7 G I asked him for Hank Williams and dropped a dollar in his jar
C G But he said he didn't know the song that I asked him to do C G I said son are you sure cause it was big in '52 C G Em He said man I'm sorry that was way before my time Am D7 G And I couldn't help but think about that old man's salty line
Am D7 G Beethoven was before my time but I still like his songs
