That Ol Door  Rodney Crowell

[E]We moved into a house in Tenness[A]ee
From the [E]California desert where we d[B]id not wanna be
Where the [E]grass was high and the rivers green the sk[A]y was always blue
It was [C#m]1982 the [B]world was still brand new

Oh the [E]front door to that house was very st[A]rong
As [E]long as we were living there I knew no[B]thing could go wrong
So we [E]had our kids we made our lives work ou[A]t the best we could
Behind [C#m]that ol' piece of wood in a [B]world we understood

That ol' [Amaj7]door was always open, that ol' door was never closed
That ol' door was our protection when the ne[B]ed arose
That ol' [Amj7]door was ever faithful, that ol' door was ever strong
That ol' door was there to open up and we[B]lcome me back home
Welcome me back [E]home
We never knew how good we get it there
So we went right on living like we didn't have a care
And when the only thing that mattered didn't matter after all
And the writin' on the wall said we're headed for a fall

That ol' door was always open that ol' door was standing guard
That ol' door was there to witness when the times were hard
That ol' door was ever faithul that ol' door was in our bones
That ol' door was there to open up and welcome me back home


Sometimes when the leaves blow down the track
Something deep inside of me bring all those mem'ries back
And that door comes round to haunt me with those chiseled marks that show
Just how much a kid can grow in a world still moving slow

That ol' door was always open... + Verse 1
