Old John Robertson   

Intro:  D  G    A   D  A

A                     D              A  
Old John Robertson he wore a Stetson hat
A                       D                E  
People everywhere would laugh behind his back 
A      D        A        F#m          E             
No one cared to take any time to find out 
                D                     E
What he was all about, fear kept them out 

A                               D               A
Children laughed and played and didn´t know his name 
A                           D               E
They could tell when he was coming just the same 
A       D             A               F#m         E
Walking slow with old John´s crippled wife by his side 
         D                E
Then she sighed, then she died 

Magic words from him would charm some children´s ears 
But they laughed at him when he hid behind his tears 
All in vain was no game for he'd lost an old friend 
in the end, in the end
