John J. Blanchard  Unknown

Intro: D G C G (x2)
  He had a s[D]troke in '9[G]5
They thought it b[D]est that he res[G]ide, in a nursing home[D] [G] [C] [G]
The family v[D]owed they'd never l[G]eave him
The last t[D]ime they came to s[G]ee him, was three years ago[D] [G]
He spent his w[D]hole life pro[G]vidin'
Now he was d[D]own to re[G]lyinÂ’, on Medicar[D]e [G] [C] [G]
The nurses t[D]ook a liking [G]to him
They'd get his wh[D]eelchair out and p[G]ush him, on sunny day[D]s [G]
He couldn't w[A]alk, he couldn't speak, seemed [C]so far out of reach
But in his m[G]ind as far as they knew he could [A]be
  Fly fish[D]in',[G] workin' on that[D] firebird engine  [G]
Runnin' [D]99 proof m[G]oonshine across that c[D]ounty line[G]
3,2,[D]1 and ign[G]ition, off on s[D]ome space shuttle m[G]ission
Playin' [D]QB for the C[G]owboys, gettin' h[D]igh on the c[G]rowd noise
And the b[A]right lights
Cause deep ins[C]ide things were rockin' in the m[A]ind
Of John J. Bl[D]anchard [G]   [D]   [G]
    One a[D]fternoon in J[G]une
A nurse s[D]aw his finger m[G]ove, about had a he[D]art attack [G] [C] [G]
She went sc[D]reamin' down the h[G]all
Hey, it's a m[D]iracle ya[G]'ll, I think he's comin' [D]back [G]
The d[A]octors all rushed in, said do you k[C]now what year this is
How many fi[G]ngers am I holding and where've you be[A]en.[Asus4]... [Asus4]
and he said
    Fly fish[D]in',[G] workin' on that[D] firebird engine  [G]
Runnin' [D]99 proof m[G]oonshine across that c[D]ounty line[G]
3,2,[D]1 and ign[G]ition, off on s[D]ome space shuttle m[G]ission
Playin' [D]QB for the C[G]owboys, gettin' h[D]igh on the c[G]rowd noise
And the b[A]right lights
Yeah all this t[C]ime things were rockin' in the m[A]ind
Of John J. Bl[D]anchard
