  Three Penny Piece -- A HANDFUL OF SONGS

I heard this song performed by Declan Dunne, the lead singer for an Irish group, Three Penny Piece,
from London Ontario, Canada.  It was written by a local man whose name I do not know.

a version of this song.

VERSE 1.
C                     F             C
All that I have is my grandfather's hammer,
    F            C                         G
His old railroad watch with the casing all worn,
        C                    F               C
And the bible my grandmother bought for last Christmas,
F          C           G               C
Left to my mother, now she's passed it on.

Chorus: 
F              C            F           C 
Some may leave money from a lifetime of saving,
F               C                 G
Some just their names on a marble stone.
     F            C               F        C
It's not what you leave, it's the joy of remembering
     F        C              G          C
And all I can leave you is a handful of songs.

VERSE 2.
C                            F            C
Some may leave stories, well tuned in the telling
F              C                             G
Some may leave jokes that can still make you laugh,
C                       F           C
Some may leave lessons, hard in the learning,
F           C           G        C
Some just a smile in an old photograph  

Chorus: 
F              C            F           C 
Some may leave money from a lifetime of saving,
F               C                 G
Some just their names on a marble stone.
     F            C               F        C
It's not what you leave, it's the joy of remembering
     F        C              G          C
And all I can leave you is a handful of songs.

VERSE 3.
C                      F            C
Oh, how many days slip away without notice,
F        C                          G
How many good times are lost on the way,
C                    F         C
How many friends are taken for granted
    F       C            G               C
And only remembered when they've passed away.

Chorus: 
F              C            F           C 
Some may leave money from a lifetime of saving,
F               C                 G
Some just their names on a marble stone.
     F            C               F        C
It's not what you leave, it's the joy of remembering
     F        C              G          C
And all I can leave you is a handful of songs.
