David Allan Coe - Old Man Tell Me
Capo 1

I've seen the old man sittin' round
The courthouse square back home in town
G                     Em           G  A
Talkin' about the big war, back in 1943
Sayin' how much good it's done
Medals gleamin' in the sun
G             Em
Cussin' at my long hair
       G             A
And my talk of bein' free.

Their vision like their battle scars
Of other wars has faded
Like the colors on the ribbons
From the battles that they've won
If there's one thing I've learned it's this
    D                     Bm
You just can't shake hand with a fist
                  Em             A
And I once did my talkin' with a gun.

And old man I know what you've seen
But yours is not the only dream
G         F#m  Em              G               A 
I have to believe in something more than yesterday
Let it die just like the past
A                 G
I believe there's hope at last
Old man, did you ever have to pray
Old man, can you show me the way.

He shakes his head from time to time
And rambles somewhere in his mind
G                 Em
Mumblin' bout the civil war
    G                  A
And how we should have won
Settin' up his battle plans
On checker boards at his command
G                Em               G             A
Watchin' all his gallant kings go fallen one by one.

And "son he'd say there's not much time
For you to straighten out your mind
G                            Em              A
But you never listen, to the things I try to say
And I just turn my head and cry
Never understanding why
G                Em
He'd set up that checkerboard
When he knew I couldn't play.
