Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


jacobs ladder  Mark Wills



[G]Jacob was a dirt poor farm boy
raised at the fork in the road, in a clapboard house[C]
and Rachel was a land baron's daughter
born with a silver spoon in her mouth.
Her daddy said he wouldn't stand
for Rachel to waste her life with a common man[C]
[A]He tried hard to keep them apart
but you can'[C]t draw lines, in a young[D] girl's heart
[C]So late one night by the harvest moon
Jacob climbed a ladder up to Rachel's room
[G]He knew his place, it was right beside her
[C]step by step, up to her world
head over heels for his brown eyed girl
[G]and gettin' caught didn't seem to matter
   [A-]                         [D]        [G]'cause heaven was waitin' at the top of Jacob's ladder.
(Key change to A)
It'l[A]l be five years september
since her daddy found a ladder
and a note on her window s[D]ill
He swore he'd never forgive them
but nothin' melts a heart like a grandchild will[A]
Now she climbs up on his knee
says "Grampa tell the story; the one about me"[D]
[B-]He thinks back and his eyes shine
[D]says listen child, once[E] upon a time...
[D]Late one night by the harvest moon
your daddy climbed a ladder to your momma's room
[A]He knew his place, it was right beside her
[D]Step by step, up to her world
head over heals for my little girl
[A]and here you are, that's all that matters
'cause heav[B-]en was waitin' at[E] the top of Jacob's ladder
[A]  [E/G#]      [F#]   [E]          [B-]                     [E]     [A]Oh, and an angel was waitin' at the top of Jacob's Ladder
