G
Jacob was a dirt poor farm boy
                                                       C
raised at the fork in the road, in a clapboard house

and Rachel was a land baron's daughter

born with a silver spoon in her mouth.

Her daddy said he wouldn't stand
                                                      C
for Rachel to waste her life with a common man
A
He tried hard to keep them apart
            C                       D
but you can't draw lines, in a young girl's heart
C
So late one night by the harvest moon
Jacob climbed a ladder up to Rachel's room
G
He knew his place, it was right beside her
C
step by step, up to her world
head over heels for his brown eyed girl
G
and gettin' caught didn't seem to matter
   A-                       D                                        
G
'cause heaven was waitin' at the top of Jacob's ladder.
(Key change to A)

It'll be five years september
since her daddy found a ladder
                          D
and a note on her window sill

He swore he'd never forgive them
                                                     A
but nothin' melts a heart like a grandchild will

Now she climbs up on his knee
                                                D
says "Grampa tell the story; the one about me"
B-
He thinks back and his eyes shine
D                      E
says listen child, once upon a time...
D
Late one night by the harvest moon

your daddy climbed a ladder to your momma's room
A
He knew his place, it was right beside her
D
Step by step, up to her world
head over heals for my little girl
A
and here you are, that's all that matters
           B-               E
'cause heaven was waitin' at the top of Jacob's ladder
A E/G#  F#
E         B-                   E                                     
A
Oh, and an angel was waitin' at the top of Jacob's Ladder
