DOld John Joseph was a Gman with two first Dnames

Em A G

AThey left him in the railroad yard when they took away the trains DOnly one run a week comes on Groaring down that Dline Em A G [G/f#] EmSo all he's got to worry 'bout is time. I Emcome by in the evening to Bmhear 'bout where he's been HeC says - Come on sit down Kid, Awhere shall I begin? He starts Emtelling me the stories of the Bmglories of his past C D/sus2 D D* D But he always saves the story of his Corey for the last. And he says - My DCorey's coming. No more Gsad stories coming My Emmidnight-moonlight-Amorning-glory's Gcoming aren't you Agirl? And Dlike I told you, when she Gholds you She Aenfolds you in her Dworld. DI was quite surprised to find out all the Gplaces that he Dknew And Emso I asked the Atownfolk if his Gstories were Atrue They said - DOld John was born here, Ghe's lived here all his Dlife He's Emnever had a Awoman, Glet alone a Awife. And Emvery soon you'll find out Bmas you check around That Cno one named Corey's ever Alived in this town So IEm chided the old man 'bout the Bmtruth that I had heard C D/sus2 D D* D But he smiled and said - Reality is only just a word. DI came by one evening Gbut he did not hear Dmy shout EmI looked in the Awindow and Gsaw the fire was Aout DWhen he would not wake up I Gforced in the Ddoor EmAnd found that Old John AJoseph would tell GstorAies no Dmore. DmThe scene at the graveyard, three of us were there DmMe and the gravedigger Emheard the parson's Aprayer AHe said - We need not grieve for this man, AFor we know that God cares! DThey put the cold dirt over him and Gleft me on my Down EmAnd when at last I lAooked up I Gsaw I was not Aalone DSo I said - If you're a relative, he Ghad a peaceful Dend. EmShe said - My name is ACorey - you can Gsay I'm Ajust a Dfriend. DCorey's coming, no more Gsad stories coming My Emmidnight-moonlight-Amorning-glory's Gcoming aren't you Agirl? And Dlike I told you, when she Gholds you She Aenfolds you in her Dworld. So Dthat's the old man's story, I'm Gglad you came Dtonight A Embusted down old Arailroad yard sure Gmakes a lonely Asight You may wonder Dwhy a young man would Gwork out here Dalone Em A G [G/f#] EmWell the job pays enough to keep some flesh on my bones. EmAnd I confess I get to missing Bmthe old man a bit C D/sus2 D D* D And there's one other reason I guess I should admit - Can't you see my DCorey's coming, no more Gsad stories Dcoming My Emmidnight-moonlight-Amorning-glory's Gcoming aren't you Agirl? And Dlike he told me, Gwhen she holds me She Aenfolds me in her Dworld.
