The oGld man used to tell me, when I was just a Dboy He Cwas blessed Gbecause he had a Cjob that he eDnjoyed NGot everyone would like it, but to him the main Dappeal CWas the breathing of theG bellows, and theC ringing of the sGteel I started working early, holding horses for my pa It was a little town we lived; only one man had a car And the old man used to watch him, whenever he drove past He said its just a fad you know its never gonna last (Chord Progression (2)) DAll around the forge the Cold man Gstrolled DGrabbed a bit of iron and sChoved it in the Gcoals GHe was good at what he did, and he cut end on a Dsteel CAmongst the breathing of the Gbellows and the Cringing of the Gsteel The old mans head got greyer, but it didnt slow him down He kept on shoeing horses that were brought from round the town He showed me bits and pieces, and before too long I could make a decent set of shoes and shape and whack them on Wed sometimes have a shoeing race, and sweat from start to end The old man was the master but sometimes hed let me win And a crowed of eager passer-bys would watch the mad ordeal Amongst the breathing of the bellows and the ringing of the steel

After years of teaching, after years of toil The old man was buried deep in mountain soil I kept on with the shoeing, but the job was in recess The old man wasnt right about the motor car I guess Now Ive all but had it, and the forge is very quiet But I heat the coals up now and then and tinker round inside I do it for the old man, and remember how Id feel Amongst the breathing of the bellows, and the ringing of the steel The Cringing of the Gsteel
