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

Repeat #3,4

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

Repeat #3,4

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
