{937 Pre-war Kimball
1, 2, 3, gone}

Oh, it sat in this corner for many a year
Through fireside parties, tears and cheers
And the hands of James Hooker flew over it's keys
And God know who else 'fore it came to me

And when I was alone I could be Julie Gold
It rang her "From A Distance" just like it was my own
I'd pretend I've the voice of Beth Neilsen Chapman
I wrote 'Late Night Grande' with just my right hand happenin'

Now it's keys rent the air in it's new place to stand
A gift for the children who'll play right and left hand
