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

Repeat #3

D7 G
And we’re thankful for good old King Lear
