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
