King Lear Recorded Cal Smith Written by Mel Holt [3/4 time]
G C There’s an old man in town named O’Leary but we call him Lear D7 G He lives in a world grownup people can’t get to from here G7 C But he’s magic to children and they love this gentle old man D7 G He can’t relate to grownups but we know that God understands
C You can find him on a bench on the courthouse lawn everyday D7 G Where the kids and their pets all gather and joyfully play G7 C People pass and they notice how happy each little face gets D7 G When they all gather round him for candy and treats for their pets
C He’s a king reining there on the courthouse square D7 G Grown people can’t get there from here C He sets in the sun and his subjects all come D7 G To pay homage to good old King Lear
C The town folks all know that the old man is slow in his mind D7 G But God sent us a gift more precious than we’ll ever find G7 C The sun beams upon him each morning like a halo of love D7 G And wherever he goes he’s encircled by white turtle doves
D7 G And we’re thankful for good old King Lear
