(D) There's two nails in the wall
Above the (G) door in the hall
Where (D) Dad's old fiddle hung for twenty (A7) years
I (D) recall as just a boy
How my (G) heart would beat with joy
When (D) Daddy would play the (A7) song I loved to (D) hear:
And Daddy would (G) play: - Fiddle ...
Daddy never left us any will
Tellin' us what he'd give
But ev'rybody knew his fiddle was mine
But the fiddle was all he left
So I had to teach myself
And I bet I played his song a million times:
And I would play: - Fiddle ...
Well, if Dad could see me now
Oh, I know that he'd be proud
To hear his old fiddle play once again
But mayble it won't be long
'Til I join him in a song
And together we play this song once again:
And then we'll play: - Fiddle ...
