Old Upright Piano  Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

Play with capo on 4th fret to match recording.
INTRO: C G D G G
[C]For as long as I [G]remember When [C]Friday night came [G]round The [C]family would [G]gather
[G]out at grandpa's h[D]ouse With [Am]supper over and the d[G]ishes done T[G]hen the b[F]est time c[C]ame
At an [C]old upright [G]piano that [D7]only grandma [G]played
CHORUS: She [C]played beautiful [G]dreamer my [C]wild irish [G]rose never [C]played them [G]perfect
but there was [G]love in every [D]note and [C]grandpa sat [G]beside her in [G]harmo[F]ny they [C]sang
at the [C]old upright [G]piano that [D]only grandma [G]played
[Em]Grandpa was a [G]stubborn man They [Em]said it was his [G]style [C]grandma called him [G]onrery
But [G]she said it with a [D]smile E[Am]ven he could not [G]desguise the [G]love he [F]felt so [C]strong
[C]We all could see it In his [G]eyes When she [D]played his favorite [G]song
REPEAT CHORUS:
[Em]I was almost [G]seventeen [Em]When my grandma [G]died I [C]stayed all night with [G]grandpa
The [G]old man never [D]cried We [Am]sat at her [G]piano There was [G]nothing [F]we could [C]say
It [C]was the first time in my [G]life I ever [D7]heard my grandpa [G]play
[C]It wasn't beautiful [G]dreamer my [C]wild irish [G]rose it was a [C]song he played from [G]memory
and he [G]never missed a [D]note I [C]sat right there [G]beside him [G]until the [F]morning [C]came
what a [C]friend we have in [G]Jesus was the [D]only song he [G]played
REPEAT CHORUS:
at the [C]old upright [G]piano that [D]only grandma [G]played
I DON'T THINK IT'S PERFECT BUT IT SOUNDS REALLY CLOSE WHEN YOU PLAY ALONG WITH RECORDING.
