Album: The Wagonmaster

(Spoken Intro)


   D              A                 D
On past the Riley Fruit Farm in the country
                      A               D
And accross the Gundy Hills of Chapin Holler
   G                                   D    
An old man lived alone like a prisoner serving
                A               D
I'd never met a man like Albert Erving

VERSE (play the rest of the verses this way):
D                   A          D
Albert never held a woman or a child
          G                  D                  A
You could see that his loneliness had drove him wild
He said I ain't seen a soul in three long years
    D               A             D
And down his lonely face came the tears

    A                                     D
His house was built of logs and cardboard boxes
    A                                     D
The boxes sealed the cracks in the winter time
The floor in Albert's home was just the earth wore down
      D               A            D
Where Albert Erving's feet walked around


Everything in Albert's house was made by hand
A picture carved in wood set on a stand
Such beauty in that face I'd never seen
Carved just below the picture, the name Kathleen

Albert held the picture close up to his face
Said my Kathleen adds beauty to this place
I asked him who she was, then came the tears, he said she's not real
She's just someone I've dreamed of all these years


                      A                D
Where Albert Erving's feet had walked around
