Four Poster Bed recorded by Brenda Lee written by Shel Silverstein C It was just some boards of rough cut pine G And a quilt of patch work cotton A place to lay your body down D7 G Was that big four poster bed Daddy built it out of pine C G Two days before the wedding They say the neighbors cheered and hollered A7 D7 Till his face got red G And Mama brought the feather pillows C G And some handmade bedding And they spent their wedding night D7 G In that big four poster bed That night they swore like that bed C G Their love would last forever And they'd ask no more of life A7 D7 Than the simple things they had G So they planed there future C G As they laid close together And later I was born there D7 G In that big four poster bed C It was just some boards of rough cut pine G And a quilt of patch work cotton C G A place to lay your body down A7 D7 A place to rest your head C A field of fluffy mountains G For a little girl to hide in Clouds and chasing rainbows D7 G Was that big four poster bed I remember as a child waking up C G On a winter morning With Sound of laughing voices A7 D7 And the smell of baking bread G And running across that coal wood floor C G Jumping there with them And Lord I felt so safe and warm D7 G In that big four poster bed The day that daddy died C G He whispered something soft to mama To this day she's never told a soul A7 D7 The words he said G She just smiled through her tears C G And held his hand and nodded And my daddy looked so much at rest D7 G In that big four poster bed Now time has dried up all the tears C G Here I stand a woman Your arms reach out to touch my soul A7 D7 Your sweet words turn my head G Darling won't you tell me first C G This will be forever Before you lead me up the stairs D7 G To that big four poster bed Cause only love has ever touched D7 G That big four poster bed
