Disappearing Farmer
By John Anderson
Written by James Cowan, Sandy Pinkard
Album: Wild & Blue (1982)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

D               A           G           D 
I remember Grandpa standing over by the gate 
    D                 A                 G                D            
His eyes turned up to heaven, wondering why the rain was late
       G                             D  
And it seems so sad to look back now and see him lying there
     D    A               G                 D
In a $500 casket with the dirt still in his hand

       G                                  D
It's a sad truth when the wind can blow a man's whole away
        G                                           D
Like to strip the topsoil from the ground where the corn grew yesterday
            G                             D  
Makes him a disappearing farmer cause his dreams rode with that wind
    D               A                 G                   D 
And all he knows is dominoes and some close, old wrinkled friends

Grandpa saw it comin', of that there ain't no doubt
With the bankers on his doorstep and a cotton killin' drought
But he was a kind and and he was a gentle man, until the bitter end
And he was smilin on his deathbed, glad he hadn't sold out to them

Now a modern 2 lane blacktop runs across the old homeplace
And the man that ran the graveyard didn't recognize my face
And the ground beneath seems drier now, my god, when will it rain
And pushing pretty flowers around my grandpa's grave
