Joshua  Shawn Mullins

Joshua was an ol[C]d man, his beard like mo[C]untain snow
And when [F]I was a boy we'd have jam ses[C]sions
[C]I'd sneak off to old Sharptop, [C]with my guitar I would go
When I [F]should have been at school, learnin' my [C]lessons
And he'd [G]sip a little moonshine
And I'd [F]smoke a corncob pipe
And we'd [G]pick all day until our fingers [F]bled
And [G]right around supper time
I'd [F]run home in the night
[G]Just in time to get a whoppin' from my [F]Dad[C]
My [C]friend Joshua tells me that [C]picking wont pay the rent
W[F]ell I set out to prove him wrong i[C]n time
[C]I dont guess I can recall a[C]ll the hours that I spent
Just be[F]ating on that old flat top of [C]mine
[G]Me and my friend Joshua lord
[F]We must have played them all
[G]And I got to where I could put the old man to s[F]hame
[G]I don't guess it ever seemed to [F]bother Josh at all
[G]We still loved to pick 'em just the s[F]ame[G]
[C]Oh[G], way bac[F]k when
[C]He was 6[G]5 and I was [F]10
And [C]I will never b[G]e as f[F]ree again
[C] O[G]h, way back[F] when
[C]The summer flew by quickly and J[C]osh and I spent our time
Writing w[F]ords to songs from me[C]mories of his past
[C]He'd tell me bout the way it was and I[C]'d find the perfect rhyme
And I couldn't bel[F]ieve how we wrote our songs [C]so fast
I never kn[G]ew an old man could be[F] so full of life
The l[G]ove we had was so hard to ex[F]plain
And[G] I remember how the tears fell when he s[F]poke of his late wife
And I'd g[G]ive him my 6-string to ease his [F]pain
[C]Oh[G], way bac[F]k when
[C]He was 6[G]5 and I was [F]10
And [C]I will never b[G]e as f[F]ree again
[C] O[G]h, way back[F] when
Instrumental Bridge (Solo): D, F, C, G, D, F, C, G
And then in late November
I knocked o[F]n his cabin door, I k[G]nocked and knocked but Joshua never c[F]ame
And[G] I still remember, how he la[F]yed there on the floor
And [G]I went home a-cryin' in the[F] rain
[C]Oh[G], way bac[F]k when
[C]He was 6[G]5 and I was [F]10
And [C]I will never b[G]e as f[F]ree again
[C] O[G]h, way back[F] when
[C] O[G]h, way back[F] when
[C] O[G]h, way back[F] when
