Lyrics

JOHN HARTFORD AND ME
Words and Music by Max Gainey


VERSE 1
Back in the good ole days
One of us in a purple haze
Strummed our songs while sitting in a tree
The other one had a big success
Played his tunes as Glen’s guest
One of us watched the other one
On a black and white TV

CHORUS
We both loved the banjo and the fiddle
We’d both dance the soft shoe just a little
Floating down the Mississippi free
John Hartford and me

VERSE 2
Nashville shut the Opry down
Moved to a mall outside of town
One of us left a big music company
The other one got a regular job
Drove his wife and kids in a four-door Saab
Forgot that there’s another way
That life could be

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3
One of us passed away too young
We cherish every song you sung
You’ll always be gentle on our minds

REPEAT CHORUS
