Intro:
G C G
G C G

G      C
It was just some boards of rough cut pine 
C                        G
And a quilt of patchwork cotton
G                           
A place to lay your body down 
G        D7              G  D7
Was that big four poster bed
 
#1:
G                  G7        
Daddy built it out of pine 
G7  C               G
Two days before the wedding
G                      
They say the neighbors cheered and hollered 
A7                D7
'Til his face got red
D7  G                    G7
And Mama brought the feather pillows 
C                 G
And some handmade bedding
G                         
And they spent their wedding night 
G       D7              G  D7
In that big four poster bed

#2: 
D7   G 
That night they swore that like that bed 
G7    C                  G
Their love would last forever
G 
And they'd ask no more of life 
G        A7                 D7
Than the simple things they had
D7       G
So  they planned their future 
G7       C                 G
As  they lay there close together
G 
And later I was born there 
G       D7              G
In that big four poster bed

Chorus 
G7     C
It was just some boards of rough cut pine 
C                        G
And a quilt of patchwork cotton
G C                 G
A place to lay your body down 
G A7                 D7
A place to rest your head
D7 C
A  field of fluffy mountains 
C                    G
For a little girl to hide in
G                          
Clouds and chasing rainbows 
G        D7              G   D7
Was that big four poster bed

#3: 
D7   G           G7
I remember, as a child, waking
C             G
up on  winter mornings
G 
With the sound of laughing voices 
G       A7              D7
And the smell of baking bread
D7   G                            G7
And running 'cross that cold wood floor 
C                G
Jumping in there with them
G 
And Lord I felt so safe and warm 
G       D7              G   D7
In that big four poster bed
 
#4:
D7   G             G7
The day that daddy died 
G7           C                 G
He whispered something soft to mama
G 
To this day she's never told 
   A7               D7
a soul the words he said
D7        G                 G7
She just smiled through her tears 
G7  C                  G
And held his hand and nodded
G 
And my daddy looked so much at rest 
G       D7              G
In that big four poster bed
 
Chorus:

G7     C
It was just some boards of rough cut pine 
C                        G
And a quilt of patchwork cotton
G C                 G
A place to lay your body down 
G A7                 D7
A place to rest your head
C
A  field of fluffy mountains 
C                    G
For a little girl to hide in
G                          
Clouds and chasing rainbows 
G        D7              G   D7
Was that big four poster bed

#5:
G                             G7 
Now time has dried up all the tears 
C               G
 Here I stand a woman
G 
Your arms reach out to touch my soul 
A7                  D7
  Your sweet words turn my head
G                          G7
 Darling won't you tell me first 
C                G
 This will be forever
G
Before you lead me up the stairs 
        D7              G
To that big four poster bed

Outro : 
       G               
'Cause only love has ever touched 
     D7              G
That big four poster bed

Final Chorus - fade:
G7         C
Yes it was just some boards of rough cut pine 
C                        G
And a quilt of patchwork cotton
G C                 G
A place to lay your body down 
G A7                 D7
A place to rest your head
D7 C
A  field of fluffy mountains 
C                    G
For a little girl to hide in
G                          
Clouds and chasing rainbows 
G        D7              G   D7
Was that big four poster bed
