Old time country halls
Verse 1

     D                    G            D
As I pick up my guitar to sing another song
                                        E                   A
I hear the walls of this old hall-youíve done this thing too long
     D                                                         G
You know youíve been around for years, I guess youíve shown us all
                       D                  G       A       D
I talk like this when I reminisce with an old time country hall.

Verse2

   D                                  G                D
I joined a tent show as a kid with a dream and an old guitar
                                  E              A
De silvers all star cavalcade and Dante was the star
    D                                          G
He taught me lots about the game, today I understand
                 D              G    A        D
He was a great magician and he was a fine old man

Chorus

      A                                  G           D
Iím a howlin cattle camp crooner, Iím an old time dinosaur
      G                    D                    G       A        D
Hey. Let me sing where the rafaters ring, in an old time country hall.

Verse 3

   D                                      G                D
Iíve been on the road for forty years and Dante could equal that
                                           E                  A
And youíll find his faded posters still in some halls way out back
  D                                                  G
I like to go back stage and dream sometimes and just recall
                        D                    G          A        D
The shows Iíve had, the good and bad, shared with these country halls.




Verse 4

          D                                 G                 D
Take the old Town hall Kalgoorlie with itís old time charm and grace
                                 E           A
And your multi-million complexes never will replace
     D                                                    G
All glass and steel and concrete, some large and some too small
                         D                   G       A        D
Oh let me sing where the rafters ring in the old time country halls.


Chorus

   A                                   G              D
Iím howlin cattle camp crooner, Iím an old time dinosaur
      G                    D                   G       A       D
Hey, let me sing where the rafters ring, in an old time country hall
   A                                    G             D
Iím holing cattle camp crooner, Iím an old time dinosaur
      G                    D                  G       A       D
Hey let me sing where the rafters ring, in an old time country hall

Tag

       G       A       D
In an old time country hall
       G       A       D
In an old time country hall.
