Capo 1

     D          F#m/A             D7
It's hung there on the front porch
                         Bm
Since this old house was built
     A       
It's where the old men whittle
                           D
And the women fleece their quilts
          D         F#m/A
It's held four generations 
                            Bm
Through whatever life could bring
         A 
That ol' swing 
               D
That ol' porch swing


It held a grieving widow
When my daddy's daddy died
And now it rocks my children
When they close their sleepy eyes
It's where I popped the question
With a quarter karot ring
That ol' swing
That ol' porch swing


Chorus:
     G
It's been there through the sunshine 
     D
It's had it's share of rain
       E7
Been a witness to some good times
      A
And a like amount of pain
   D                  F#m/A     D7    
If it could tell it's stories
                    Bm
What a ballad could sing
         A  
That ol' swing 
                D
That ol' porch swing




Move Capo to 2 (same chords)

It's where brother read the letter 
That sent him off to war
We knew he had to go and fight
But we didn't know what for
When he came home he just sat there
And never said a thing
In that swing 
That ol' porch swing

Chorus:
It's been there through the sunshine 
It's had it's share of rain
Been a witness to some good times
And a like amount of pain
If it could tell it's story
What a Violin could sing
That ol' swing 
That ol' porch swing

That ol' swing 
That ol' porch swing...
