to play along ...no capo....key is G



                 G                      
He's just a picture on the wall
                           D7                          
Of  the Bluebird Cafe
                                     
And he's hugging that fiddle
                            G
He's showing the way

G
He's got an old cowboy hat

That's been with him for awhile

He's a fiddler man that

Can make that fiddle smile
          C
Can make that fiddle cry
                          G
make that fiddle sing
                           D7
make that fiddle bring
        C
the memory of my grandad
               G
and my grandma's lemonade
         D7
and hard work and sunshine
          G
and sleeping in the shade
                   C
He's just a picture on the wall
            G
of the Bluebird Cafe
                D7                                 G
and he's showing,he's showing the way.

            G
Now I love that old fiddlerman

so stomp the floor with me

And he'll take you back to a time

when bluegrass was king
         C                                               G
and hard times and hard living meant character
               D7
And he shared with her

and he shared with us
                                                                                         G
and he's hugging that fiddle he's showing he's showing the way

          C
Now make that fiddle cry
                          G
make that fiddle sing
                           D7
make that fiddle bring
        C
the memory of my grandad
               G
and my grandma's lemonade
         D7
and hard work and sunshine
         G
and sleeping in the shade
                   C
He's just a picture on the wall
            G
of the Bluebird Cafe
                D7                                 G
and he's showing,he's showing the way.
