The Old Man And His Fiddle Recorded by Red Steagall Written by Red Steagall and Richard O'Brien [3/4 time]
C G7 F C In a trunk in the attic in Grandmother’s house Am Dm G7 An old photograph caught my eye C G7 F C An old man with a fiddle and a cane bottom chair F G7 C G7 No name just the date that he died
C G7 F C Though he lived long ago in a world I don’t know Am Dm G7 And places that I’ve never been C G7 F C His picture allows me to go back in time F G7 C To hear his old fiddle again
F Dm Did he fiddle the lonesome away for a while F G7 Did they dance as he played ‘em a tune C E7 F Did the young lovers sway to the Westphalia Waltz D7 G7 In the glow of the Santa Fe moon
E7 Am G7 C Did they dream of a home that was so far away F Dm G7 And the loved ones that they left behind C E7 F Dm Did a waltz across the sea from the green Ireland shores F G7 C G7 And take ’em back home for a time
C G7 F C I imagined he played as the ship rode the waves Am Dm G7 On a sea that seemed endless and strange C G7 F C I can hear him play now in a green river camp F G7 C While the bush sways and beaver men sing
G7 F C And I’ll bet that he played on an old Irish jig Am Dm G7 As they camped on the Oregon Trail C G7 F C In the candlelight glow of Kansas sod home F G7 C He drowned out the prairie with swing
C G7 F C Did he play Faded Love on a west Texas night Am Dm G7 When the ranch folks would gather for a while C G7 F C Though the draught and the wind put a frown on their face F G7 C Did they dance and forget for a while
C E7 F Dm Did a waltz across the sea from the green Ireland shores F G7 C And take ’em back home for a time
