A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramB minorBm A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramE7E7 A chord diagramA augmentedA

A chord diagramA augmentedA                A chord diagramB minorBm
My old man had a rounder soul
     A chord diagramE MajorE           A chord diagramE7E7                     A chord diagramA augmentedA
He'd hear an ol' freight train and he'd have to go

A chord diagramA augmentedA                             A chord diagramB minorBm
Said he'd been blessed with a gypsy bone
    A chord diagramE MajorE                   A chord diagramE7E7         A chord diagramA augmentedA
And that's the reason I guess that he'd been cursed to roam

A chord diagramA augmentedA                   A chord diagramB minorBm
Came to town back before the war
A chord diagramE MajorE                A chord diagramE7E7          A chord diagramA augmentedA
Didn't even know what it was he was lookin' for

   A chord diagramA augmentedA                              A chord diagramB minorBm
He carried a tattered bag for his violin
A chord diagramE MajorE                     A chord diagramE7E7     A chord diagramA augmentedA
Full of lots of songs of the places he had been

   A chord diagramA augmentedA                          A chord diagramB minorBm
He talked real easy, he had a smiling way
A chord diagramE MajorE                      A chord diagramE7E7  A chord diagramA augmentedA
He could pass along to you when his fiddle played

A chord diagramA augmentedA                        A chord diagramB minorBm
Makin' people drop their cares and woes
    A chord diagramE MajorE                A chord diagramE7E7    A chord diagramA augmentedA
And hum out loud the tunes that his fiddle bowed

A chord diagramA augmentedA                             A chord diagramB minorBm
Til the people there began to join that sound
    A chord diagramE MajorE                              A chord diagramE7E7       A chord diagramA augmentedA
And ev'ryone in town was laughin,' singin,' dancin' 'round

A chord diagramA augmentedA                                     A chord diagramB minorBm
Like the Fiddler's tunes we all there heard that night
A chord diagramE MajorE                    A chord diagramE7E7   A chord diagramA augmentedA
Like some dream that says all the world is right


Instrumental Break

The Fiddler's eye caught a beauty there
She had that rollin' flowin' golden kind of hair
He played for her as if she danced alone
He played his favorite songs, the ones he called his own
She alone was dancin' in the room
The only thing left movin' to that Fiddler's tune


Instrumental break

He played until she was the last to go
The he stopped and packed his case, said he'd take her home
In all the nights that passed a child was born
In all the years that passed, love would keep them warm
And all their lives they'd share that dream come true
And all because she danced so well his fiddler tune


Instrumental break

The train next mornin' blew a lonesome sound
As if she sang the blues of what she took from town
And all that I recall that was said when I was young
There's no one else could really sing those songs he sung
