Wild Flowers in a Mason Jar  John Denver



J[G]anuary back in '[D]55 we rode a Gr[A]eyhound bus through the G[D]eorgia midnight
Gr[G]andpa was sle[D]eping and the w[A]inter sky was clear
[G]We hit a b[D]ump and his head jerked b[A]ack a little and he m[D]umbled something
[G]He woke up sm[D]iling, but his e[A]yes were bright with tears
Said, "I dr[D]eamed I was b[G]ack on the f[D]arm...
[G]20 years have p[A]assed, boy, but the m[D]emory still w[A]arms me...
[G] Wildfl[A]owers in a M[D]ason Jar..." [G] [A]
He t[G]old me those old st[D]ories about that [A]one-room cabin [D]in Kentucky
The sm[G]ell of the r[D]ain and the w[A]arm earth in his hands
He sl[G]owly turned and st[D]ared outside; his f[A]ace was mirrored [D]in the window
[G]And his refl[D]ection flew acr[A]oss the moonlit land
And he dr[D]eamed he was b[G]ack on the f[D]arm
T[G]ilts his head and l[A]istens to the e[D]arly sound of m[A]orning
[G] Wildfl[A]owers in a M[D]ason Jar [G] [A]
An [G]old man and an e[D]ight-year-old boy r[A]olling down that m[D]idnight highway
K[G]entucky m[D]emories from a w[A]inter Georgia night
[G]I started dr[D]ifting off and Gr[A]andpa tucked his co[D]at around me
I th[G]ink I tried to sm[D]ile as I sl[A]owly closed my eyes
And I dre[D]amed I was w[G]ith him on the f[D]arm
"Gr[G]andpa, I can he[A]ar the evening w[D]ind out in the c[A]orn...
[G] Wildfl[A]owers in a M[D]ason Jar... [G] [A]
[G] Wildfl[A]owers in a M[D]ason Jar... [G] [A]
[G] Wildfl[A]owers in a M[D]ason Jar..." [G] [A]
And the b[G]us rolled thr[A]ough the ni[D]ght...
