The Old Man And His Horn Recorded by Gene Watson Written by Dallas Harms
C G7 C G7 C The old man told his story about the years gone by F How he played his horn down in New Orleans in some old dingy dive C C7 F I knew 'em all back then he said as he reached out for his horn C G7 C He closed his eyes and wet his lips then the blues were born
G7 C G7 C He played with so much feeling tears came from his eyes F He stopped and reminisced a bit and then he gave a sigh C C7 F Said you know I almost made it but that's before your time C G7 C Dixieland Po' Folks Blues Scatman Jack and wine
F C F C F C Slapped his knee and gave a grin it sure was good back then G7 Reaching for his horn on the floor F C F C F C Placed it in an old tow sack that hung across his back F C G7 C He said goodbye then shuffled out the door
G7 C G7 C Enthused by what he told me I never got his name F So I called the waitress over and started to explain C C7 F A tired old man his tarnished horn and memories of years gone by C G7 C How he played his horn and reminisced smiled with tear dimmed eyes
G7 C G7 C She said you are mistaken there's been no one but you F But I know who you're talking bout I used to know him too C C7 F You'll find him down on Basin Street in back of an old churchyard C G7 C A stone that reads Rest in Peace I tried but it sure was hard
F C G7 C He said goodbye then shuffled out the door
