 D                                          G

 I'd love to hear my daddy play once again, 

  D                                         A

 all the song's that he taught me when I was a kid.

   D                           G

 John Henry, Ol' Shep and Faded love,

            D               A                 D

 I fall to pieces, and on the wings of a dove.

 

 D                                       G

 Just a few chords on the banjo, that was all he knew,

                D                                   A

 but in the eyes of a child, man his fingers flew,

   D                                         G

 I practiced and I practiced till I got it right,

 D                     A                           D   

 Packed up everything and just took off one night.

 

 D                                                  G

 I made it from the beer joints to the Opre stage.

  D                                 A

 He said the only difference is what your gettin' paid.

 

 D                                         G  

 He didn't care that everybody knew my name,

   D                  A                       D

 he said its all for nothin' if you don't stay the same.

  D                      

 But when he died the preacher cried,

 G                           D                A

 said he's the lucky one, he's walkin' hand in hand with Gods only son.

    D                                             G

 My faith and common since tell me the preachers right,

    D                      A                 D

 But I'd love to hear the banjo ring for me tonight.

 

   G                                   D 

 And I will honor my father with these words I write down.

   G                                   D              A

 and as long as I remember him he'll always be around.

    D                                          G

 And the pain of loosing him cuts like a Randall knife.

    D                        A                   D

 I learned a few chords on the banjo was the key to life.

    D                                          G        

 Yea the pain of loosing him cuts like a Randall knife,

    D                         A                  D

 I learned a few chords on the banjo was the key to life.
