Mind Of John J Blanchard-crd  Tommy Shane Steiner

He had a [G]stroke in '[C]95
They thought it [G]best that he re[C]side, in a nursing ho[G]me[C] [F] [C]
His family [G]vowed they'd never [C]leave him
The last [G]time they came to [C]see him, was three years a[G]go[C]
He spent his [G]whole life pr[C]ovidin'
Now he was [G]down to r[C]elyinâ, on Medica[G]re[C] [F] [C]
The nurses [G]took a liking[C] to him
They'd get his w[G]heelchair out and [C]push him, on sunny da[G]ys[C]
He couldn't [D]walk, he couldn't speak, seemed[F] so far out of reach
But in his [C]mind as far as they knew he could[D] be
Chorus:
[G]Fly [C]fishin', workin'[G] on that firebird [C]engine
Runnin'[G] 99 proof [C]moonshine across that [G]county lin[C]e
3,2[G],1 and ig[C]nition, off on [G]some space shuttle [C]mission
Playin'[G] QB for the [C]Cowboys, gettin' [G]high on the [C]crowd noise
And the [D]bright lights
Cause deep in[F]side things were rockin' in the [D]mind
Of John J. B[G]lanchard[C] [G] [C]
One [G]afternoon in [C]June
A nurse [G]saw his finger [C]move, she 'bout had a [G]heart attac[C]k[F] [C]
She went s[G]creamin' down the [C]hall
Hey, it's a [G]miracle y[C]a'll, I think he's comin'[G] back[C]
The [D]doctors all rushed in, said do you [F]know what year this is
How many f[C]ingers am I holding and where you b[D]een[Dsus4]....[Dsus5]
and he said
Chorus 2:
[G]Fly [C]fishin', workin'[G] on that firebird [C]engine
Runnin'[G] 99 proof [C]moonshine across that [G]county lin[C]e
3,2[G],1 and ig[C]nition, off on [G]some space shuttle [C]mission
Playin'[G] QB for the [C]Cowboys, gettin' [G]high on the [C]crowd noise
And the [D]bright lights
Yeah all this [F]time things were rockin' in the [D]mind
Of John J. B[G]lanchard
