HEART OF THE WOOD
JOEY + RORY
THE LIFE OF A SONG
Tabbed By: Stoney

CAPO IV:

G                                             G/F#
I think what made granddaddy great is that he didn't work all day
C                              D
I'd love the time we spent and I'd go everywhere he went
C                              D
We'd end up on some old deer trail
        C                                D
And I'd listen hard as he would spin his tales

We were in a field of stumps he said I got a new one for you hon
These trees once stood tall and I'm the man who made them fall
I cut 'em up, sanded them down
And you wouldn't believe what I found

                G                G/F#
'Cause past the bark and all the scars
    Em                                 C
Our home was in the heart of those old trees
              D
God bless who sowed those seeds
          G               G/F#
A hundred years they just grew
         Em                      C          D
And only heaven knew what they'd be, to our family
          C                       D
All that time to become what they should
    C                            G
Our home was in the heart of the wood

He smiled, said there's my favorite one, pointed at a cherry stump
He said I couldn't afford the one at Sears so the good lord planted one right here
He carved out what he saw within and he gave it to my dad when he turned ten

Past the bark and all the scars
There was a guitar in the heart of that old tree
All from just one seed
A hundred years and it just grew
And only heaven knew what it'd be
And how that tree would sing
All the time to become what it should
There were songs in the heart of the wood

        Bm                    C                     C/B
He said we can mark a tree to keep from getting lost
             Am            C                 G               D
and it' will always point our way home like that old rugged cross

A hundred years and it just grew only heaven knew what it'd be
And who'd hand on that tree it held the Son of God like it should
But I know it broke the heart of the wood

i think what made granddaddy great was that he didn't work all day
I'd love the time we spent
I'd go everywhere that old man went
