Old John Robertson  The Byrds

Old John Robertson
Intro: D G A D A
[A]Old John Robertson he [D]wore a Stetson [A]hat
[A]People everywhere would [D]laugh behind his [E]back
[A]No one [D]cared to [A]take any [F#m]time to find [E]out
What he was all [D]about, fear kept them [E]out
( Tab from: )
[A]Children laughed and played and [D]didnīt know his [A]name
[A]They could tell when he was [D]coming just the [E]same
[A]Walking [D]slow with old [A]Johnīs crippled [F#m]wife by his [E]side
Then she [D]sighed, then she [E]died
E D E A F#m B A D F#m *
Magic words from him would charm some childrenīs ears
But they laughed at him when he hid behind his tears
All in vain was no game for he'd lost an old friend
in the end, in the end
Verse 1
* I know that the middle part is not very good. If someone knows it
accurately please be free to correct it by comment or through mailing to me
