G*

      G*
I've got a little house on Walnut Street
      G*
The nights are quite, the morning's sweet.
        C                         D
Got an old wood floor beneath my feet,
G*
That somebody's grandfather built.
          G*
I bet he used to keep his lucky stripes on this windowsill,
           C                           D
While he planned and worked that wood until
         G*
He made silk from the yellow pine.
            G*
I've got a paper that says this house is mine, 
        D                
But it ain't...it belongs to time.

        Em             D  C                G              D    C
- With morning at the window, sometimes I swear this old room glows
         G     
And somewhere between what you can and cannot see,
                 D
That old man is here.

      G*
The neighbor lady sings all day long.
           G*
She only stops at night to start at dawn.
             C                       D
I swear she only knows about three songs,
       G*                                G*
But I find myself singing to one of her sad old country tunes.
      C                   D              G*
It reminds me of an afternoon...I was a kid and it was Saturday.
G*              
Just me and my dad drivin' out to the lake.
C                     D
Now he's just so far away...

        Em             D  C                G              D    C
- With morning at the window, sometimes I swear this old room glows
         G     
And somewhere between what you can and cannot see,
         D        G* (4X)
He's right here...

      G*
Last night I dreamed that I could fly.
              G*
If I held my arms just right, I'd stay treetop high.
         C                      D
Hell, I may just be a bird sometimes.
G*                                G*
Hanging right above it all - - a bird with a sad and lonesome call
     C                  D           
And any moment I might fall, for you...again.

        Em             D  C                G              D    C
- With morning at the window, sometimes I swear this old room glows
         G     
And somewhere between what you can and cannot see,
   D            G* (4X)
You're still here.
