Show Chords


Eddy Hill, Charlie Louvin & Ira Louvin / Acuff-Rose (BMI)

NB: You can also play this tab with a capo on the second fret if you wish
    (as it is played on the Live DVD) changing the chords from:
    A->G, D->C and E->D. However, those without a capo, and those wishing
    to obtain a fuller sound for the chords may prefer to play it this way.
    Thanks to Scott for pointing out the capo position.

Intro: A | D | A | E | A | D | A | E | A

A                                 D
He was just a little farm lad, so busy at play
         A                            E
With his little play mate outside the gate. 
         A                                 D
Well, he stopped to watch a truck that was parking next door
       A           E         A
At the home of his tiny play mate. 

E                              A
Then he saw his Daddy watchin' too 
                          D               E
As the men swiftly walked to the Carter's door.
   A                             D
He knew they were strangers that came from the town,
A          E            A
Men he had never seen before.

Fiddle solo: A | D | A | E | A | D | A | E | A

A                              D
They soon went to work when he heard his Daddy say
     A                     E
"Our neighbours are moving today."
 A                       D
"Oh no!" he cried, "dear God, don't let it be!
     A             E          A
They can't take my sweetheart away!"

 E                         A
"I know Dad you don't understand
                     D                E
How a heart so young could conceive a plan.
    A                        D
I'm only seven now, but it's just like you say,
A           E             A
Daddy, some day I'll be a man."

Dobro solo: A | D | A | E | A | D | A | E | A

 A                                    D
"The man who owns the farm where your play mates do live,
   A                            E
He told me it'd have to be this way.
    A                             D
For winter time has come, and the work is all done,
       A            E        A
That's why they are moving today."

 E                               A
"Let us buy the farm so they can stay!
                          D               E
And give him all the toys that dear Santa gave!
    A                             D
And give him all my pennies in my little piggy bank!
A               E                 A
Pennies that my darlin' helped me save."

Outro: A | D | A | E | A

Great song but it is actually played capoed 2nd fret in G. G C D. Those are the chords.
Try that it will work much better.
Keep playing

Thank you for your comment, Scott. Indeed on the Live DVD it is played with a capo on fret two. However, I think it is much simpler this way, and you also get a fuller sound. I will, though, add a note to the tab for those with a capo available to them.
