Albert Erving  Porter Wagoner

Albert Erving
P. Wagoner
(Spoken Intro)
On [D]past the Riley [A]Fruit Farm in the [D]country
And accross the Gundy [A]Hills of Chapin [D]Holler
An [G]old man lived alone like a prisoner [D]serving
I'd never met a [A]man like Albert [D]Erving
VERSE (play the rest of the verses this way):
[D]Albert never held a [A]woman or a [D]child
You could [G]see that his loneli[D]ness had drove him [A]wild
He said [G]I ain't seen a soul in three long years
And [D]down his lonely [A]face came the [D]tears
His [A]house was built of logs and cardboard [D]boxes
The [A]boxes sealed the cracks in the winter [D]time
The [G]floor in Albert's home was just the earth wore down
Where [D]Albert Erving's [A]feet walked a[D]round
Everything in Albert's house was made by hand
A picture carved in wood set on a stand
Such beauty in that face I'd never seen
Carved just below the picture, the name Kathleen
Albert held the picture close up to his face
Said my Kathleen adds beauty to this place
I asked him who she was, then came the tears, he said she's not real
She's just someone I've dreamed of all these years
Where Albert Erving's [A]feet had walked a[D]round
