Dave Gunning - House By The Stream


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C  F  C  F  C

                        F
He never worried when a day would end
          Am                   F    C
He'd just watch the cars drive by
                               F
Sitting in the twilight of his life, he felt a friend
       Dm                      C
To the highway running just outside


                                    F
The porch was his rest stop, he was born inside
                  Am                 F
If he caught your eye, he'd wave and smile
      C                               F
And I wondered if he knew me from the last time I passed by
               Dm                         C      G
A thought that stayed with me for another mile


CHORUS:
           F            C
And no one stopped only halfway there
    Am                    F        G
The old house down by the stream
            F         C            Am
But halfway there was home to him
                                F 
He settled in his worn out easy chair
             G                   Dm   
To sit awhile and smile while he dreamed
       F            C    
In his house by the stream


INTERLUDE: C   F   C   F   C


                                F
Those days on the farm had long disappeared
                   Am                 F
But his dad's last words, he'd hold onto
      C                             F
While waving at the highway, a life driving past each day
      Dm                       C      G
But a smile might have dried a tear


CHORUS:
           F            C
And no one stopped only halfway there
    Am                    F        G
The old house down by the stream
            F         C            Am
But halfway there was home to him
                                F 
He settled in his worn out easy chair
             G                   Dm   
To sit awhile and smile while he dreamed
       F            C    
In his house by the stream


INSTRUMENTAL: C  Am  G  Am  F  C  Dm  C  F  G  C


                                                F
The trees went first, then gravel trucks rolled in
                 Am            F
A four lane took shape a mile away
    C                              F
Too far to see the highway, life's road dark and empty
           Dm                     C     G
A new road opened on this closing day


CHORUS: 
           F            C
And no one stopped only halfway there
    Am                    F        G
The old house down by the stream
            F         C            Am
But halfway there was home to him
                                F 
He settled in his worn out easy chair
             G                   Dm   
To sit awhile and smile while he dreamed
       F            C       F
In his house by the stream


OUTRO:
                        Dm   
But no longer does he dream
       F            C       F  C  F
In his house by the stream
