  1. The Fiddle Man by James Clark - 2nd

Lyrics

The Fiddle Man
(Back in the good ole days – The Julia Bell Swan
Steam Powered AREO plane – Skippinin the Mississippi Dew)

I said Grandpa – I want to ride the Ferris wheel
We could eat corndogs
And look at the sheep and hogs

I thank God for my Grandpa
He took me to the Fair
Where I first saw
The derby on top of that skinny fiddle man

He did a song where he sounded
Like a washing machine
He did a song about a
Steam powered Areo Plane
And one about dointhe Boogie
Up on the little hill

Even though I didn’t
Know his name
I was never gonna
Be the same
Then he went skippin in
The Mississippi dew

I said Grandpa – I don’t want to ride the Ferris wheel
Don’t want a corndog
Or to look at the sheep and hogs – no
I just want to go
Sit in the middle of the very first row.
So I can see the fingers movin
On that fiddle man.

So we went down and
Found us a seat
The fiddle man played
While he shuffled his feet
Lordee, Lordee, Lordee
No I didn’t know his name

He did one about back
In the Good Ole Days
One was about the
Julia belle Swain
And one about keepin on
Trucking on down the line

I said Grandpa – I don’t want to ride no Farris Wheel
Don’t want a corndog
Or throw darts at balloons
I just want to stay
And listen to the fiddle man play
They say he writes his own songs
And he picks the banjo too

He did a song where he sounded
Like a washin machine
And one about a steam powered
Areo plane
One about doin the Boogie
Up on the hill

One bout Granny smoking some
One about records in the sun
One about skippin the Mississippi dew
I said Grandpa – Thanks Grandpa
