{937 Pre-war Kimball

Through fireside parties, tears and cheers
And God know who else 'fore it came to me
And when I was alone I could be Julie Gold
I'd pretend I've the voice of Beth Neilsen Chapman

A gift for the children who'll play right and left hand
Oh, with the grace of that three-quarter grand

I'd call Harlan Howard, only he'd understand
Mornings in this corner, that piano and me
And I wished for the left hand like Glenn D. Hardin
Ah, it's a blessing, it never met Jerry Lee's feet

That piano I bought from Al Jones long ago
And I smiled as it rolled out my door
That piano will always know
Now it's keys rent the air in it's new place to stand
Just a 1937 Pre-war Kimball
Oh, the grace of that three-quarter grand

Who's got a song
Who's got a song
