Wild Flowers in a Mason Jar  John Denver

"Wildflowers in a Mason Jar" as performed by John Denver
Chords used: D:XX0232 G:320003 A:X02220
NOTE: I don't know how to do tablature very well, so you'll have to
listen to the song and fiddle with D, G and A suspendeds to get the same
sound that John Denver does on his intro...note that the same "riff" that
you play as an intro comes at the end of each chorus...a ' ' mark
indicates a measure break...enjoy!--Mike
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 d[D]reamed I was [G]back on the [D]farm...
[G] 20 years have [A]passed, boy, but the [D]memory still [A]warms me...
[G] Wildf[A]lowers in a [D]Mason 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 d[D]reamed he was [G]back on the [D]farm
[G]Tilts his head and [A]listens to the [D]early sound of [A]morning
[G] Wildf[A]lowers in a [D]Mason 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 dr[D]eamed I was [G]with him on the [D]farm
"G[G]randpa, I can h[A]ear the evening [D]wind out in the [A]corn...
[G] Wildf[A]lowers in a [D]Mason Jar...[G] [A]
[G] Wildf[A]lowers in a [D]Mason Jar...[G] [A]
[G] Wildf[A]lowers in a [D]Mason Jar..."[G] [A]
And the b[G]us rolled thr[A]ough the ni[D]ght...
