The Old Man Said Chord Aaron Watson

Capo 4 with

VERSE
And the old man said
”Son, I don’t have long to live”
He slowly raised his cup and he took a sip
And the old man said
”I fought a dang good fight”
So I pulled up a chair
And sat there half the night

CHORUS
And the old man said
“Don’t take a single day for granted
Love like there’s no tomorrow
Tattoo the seeds you planted
Be a good friend and a brother
Love your children and their mother
And die by those living words in red”

VERSE
And the old man said
“Money really ain’t worth a dime”
Then gave me his golden watch
Said, “It’s all borrowed time”
And the old man said
”If I could do it all again
I’d spend more time loving her
And a little more time fishing”

CHORUS
And the old man said
“Don’t take a single day for granted
Love like there’s no tomorrow
Tattoo the seeds you planted
Be a good friend and a brother
Love your children and their mother
And die by those living words in red”
And the old man said

INSTRUMENTAL

BREAK
Don’t build walls around your heart
Never shackle up your soul
Love is the only thing that
You’ll take with you when you go
Always be quick to forgive
Forever slow to throw stones
Just like a flash, life is a dash
Between the girth and the bones

OUTRO
And the old man said
“Son I can see the light”
Then he took my hand and he squeezed it tight
The last thing the old man said
”Don’t you dare be scared of death
It’s only the beginning”
And he took his last breath (breath)
