Old Porch Swing
recorded by Gene Watson
Written by Joe Allen & Charlie Williams
 

C                                  
Its hung there on the front porch
 
Since this old house was built
    G7                         
Its where the old men whittle
                           C      
And the women fleece their quilts
 
Its held four generations
                                            F
Through whatever life could bring
         G7                    C     
That old swing  that old porch swing
 
C                        
It held a grieving widow
 
When my daddy's daddy died
    G7                        
And now it rocks my children
                             C    
When they close their sleepy eyes
 
It's where I popped the question
                                 F
With a quarter karat ring
         G7                    C     C7
That old swing  that old porch swing
 
    F                                
Its been there through the sunshine
    C                      
Its had its share of rain
       D7                          
Been a witness to some good times
     G7                   
And alike amount of pain
   C                        
If it could tell its story
                                    F
What a ballad it could sing
         G7                    C     
That old swing  that old porch swing
 
C                                   
It's where brother read the letter
 
That sent him off to war
   G7                           
We knew he had to go and fight
                        C   
But we didn't know what for
 
When he came home he just sat there
                           F
And never said a thing
        G7                    C     
In that swing  that old porch swing
 
Repeat #3
