THE SWING
James Bonamy
(Orrall/Regan)
From the CD: Roots And Wings
1997 Epic Records
Submitted by: Christopher R. (May 4, 2003)

Key of G

Intro

In my (G) daddy's yard
There's a (C) worn out wooden swing
So I (G) asked him once
What's the (A) story with that (D) thing
He said "That (G) ring of gold, that's (C) on your momma's (G) hand"
"Well (G) son this is (D) where it all be(G)gan "

(G) This swing hung from the tree
Where the girl asked the boy will you (D) play with (G) me
And the sun shined bright and the world spun round
And they grew up till it (D) all came (G) down
To the (C) church where they stood and said "I Do"
Where the (G) bells rang out and the love was true
And it grew in the hearts of the man and the woman
Who lived in the house that (D) love (G) built

When I met the girl
That (C) stole my heart away
Well I (G) gave that ole' swing
A (A) brand new coat of (D) paint
And I (G) told the tale as (C) we swung "to and (G) fro"
And I said I hope this is (D) how our story (G) goes
 
(G) This swing hung from the tree
Where the girl asked the boy will you (D) play with (G) me
And the sun shined bright and the world spun round
And they grew up till it (D) all came (G) down
To the (C) church where they stood and said "I Do"
Where the (G) bells rang out and the love was true
And it grew in the hearts of the man and the woman
Who lived in the house that (D) love (G) built

Key Change (from G to A)

Solo 

Key Change (from A, back to G)

(G) This swing hung from the tree
Where the girl asked the boy will you (D) play with (G) me
And the sun shined bright and the world spun round
And they grew up till it (D) all came (G) down
To the (C) church where they stood and said "I Do"
Where the (G) bells rang out and the love was true
And it grew in the hearts of the man and the woman
Who lived in the house that (D) love (G) built

(G) That old swing still hangs in the tree
Out back of the house that (D) love (G) built
