Disappearing Farmer
Recorded by John Anderson
Written by James Cowan and Sandy Pinkard

C G7 F C
I remember Grandpa standing over by the gate
G7 F C
His eyes turned up to heaven wondering why the rain was late
F C
And it seems so sad to look back now and see him lying there
G7 F C
In a $500 casket with the dirt still in his hand

F C
It's a sad truth when the wind can blow a man's whole life away
F C
Like it strips the topsoil from the ground where the corn grew yesterday
F C
Makes him a disappearing farmer cause his dreams rode with that wind
G7 F C
And all he knows is dominoes and some close old wrinkled friends

G7 F C
Grandpa saw it comin' of that there ain't no doubt
G7 F C
With the bankers on his doorstep and a cotton killin' drought
F C
But he was a kind and he was a gentle man until the bitter end
G7 F C
And he was smilin' on his deathbed glad he hadn't sold out to them

G7 F C
Now a modern two lane blacktop runs across the old homeplace
G7 F C
And the man that ran the graveyard didn't recognize my face
F C
And the ground beneath seems drier now my God when will it rain
G7 F C
And pushing pretty flowers around my grandpa's grave

Repeat #2
