Wildflowers In A Mason Jar

John Denver

 GDAD
January back in '55 we rode a Greyhound bus through the Georgia midnight
 GDA
Grandpa was sleeping and the winter sky was clear
 GDAD
 We hit a bump and his head jerked back a little and he mumbled something
 GDA
 He woke up smiling, but his eyes were bright with tears
 DGD
        Said, "I dreamed I was back on the farm...
 GADA
        20 years have passed, boy, but the memory still warms me...
 GADGA
        Wildflowers in a Mason Jar..."       
 GDAD
He told me those old stories about that one-room cabin in Kentucky
 GDA
The smell of the rain and the warm earth in his hands
 GDAD
He slowly turned and stared outside; his face was mirrored in the window
 GDA
 And his reflection flew across the moonlit land
 DGD
        And he dreamed he was back on the farm
 GADA
        Tilts his head and listens to the early sound of morning
 GADGA
        Wildflowers in a Mason Jar      
 GDAD
An old man and an eight-year-old boy rolling down that midnight highway
 GDA
Kentucky memories from a winter Georgia night
 GDAD
 I started drifting off and Grandpa tucked his coat around me
 GDA
I think I tried to smile as I slowly closed my eyes
 DGD
        And I dreamed I was with him on the farm
 GADA
        "Grandpa, I can hear the evening wind out in the corn...
 GADGA
        Wildflowers in a Mason Jar...      
 GADGA
        Wildflowers in a Mason Jar...      
 GADGA
        Wildflowers in a Mason Jar..."     
 GAD
And the bus rolled through the night...
