Albert Ervin

	  		Intro D 

D                 A                 D    
On past the Riley Fruit Farm in the country  
    D                A                 D 
and across the Gundy Hills to Jopin(?) Holler 
   G                                   D  
An old man lived alone like a prisoner serving 
    D           A               D  
I'd never met a man like Albert Ervin 

       D            A          D  
Albert never held a woman or a child 
          G              D                  A   
you could see that loneliness had drove him wild 
        G 
He said I ain't seen a soul in three long years 
    D               A             D  
and down his lonely face came the tears 

    A                                        D 
His house was filled with logs and cardboard boxes 
    A                                    D 
The boxes sealed the cracks in the wintertime 
    G 
The floor in Albert's home was just the earth worn down 
      D              A               D 
Where Albert Ervin's feet had walked around 

( Instrumental ) D  A  D 

     D                 A                 D 
Everything in Albert's house was made by hand 
  G                 D             A  
a picture carved in wood sat on a stand 
     G                              
Such beauty in a face I'd never seen 
       D              A                    D  
carved just below the picture the name Kathleen 

       D                A               D 
Albert held the picture close up to his face 
     G                D              A  
said my Kathleen adds beauty to this place 
  G 
I asked him who she was then came the tears 
        D 
He said she's not real 
      D                 A                    D  
she's just someone I've dreamed of all these years 

    A                                        D 
His house was filled with logs and cardboard boxes 
    A                                    D 
The boxes sealed the cracks in the wintertime 
    G 
The floor in Albert's home was just the earth worn down 
      D               A               D 
Where Albert's lonely feet had walked around 

      D              A               D 
Where Albert Ervin's feet had walked around 

(Outro)  D  A D
