OLD DAN COTTON (Chuck Girard)

D                              G
I remember old Dan Cotton, so old that he'd forgotten
Em7                      Asus    A7            D
Just how long he'd been floatin' through this life
    D        
He said that he'd fought against the Indians
        G                        
And his daddy was an old line trapper
       Em                   Asus       A7    D
And he thinks that once or twice, he'd had a wife

  D
I used to go down by the river after school
         G
When old Dan was relaxin' with a fishpole
         Em                    Asus    A7          D
And I'd ask him what he could offer a young, young boy
D                                G
Dan would start reminiscin' and sharin' his words of wisdom
       Em7                Asus      A7       D
And I remember I used to listen to him with joy

D      
Old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
      G          
Yes, old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
  Em7                    Asus             A7      D
I hope that you finally find what you're lookin' for
D 
Old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
      G         
Yes, old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
   Em                    Asus             A7      D
I hope that you finally find what you're lookin' for

D    
Then one day we couldn't find old Dan
          G
And for a while he didn't come around
       Em7                           Asus        A7      D
And I heard from the folks that he'd gone to the hills alone
        D  
Well I admit I was a little bit worried
         G 
Because Dan was so old and just a little foolhardy
       Em                         Asus      A7         D   D7
But I knew in my heart that he'd soon be a comin' back home

G   
Old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
      D/F#
Yes, old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
   Em                    Asus             A7      D  D7
I hope that you finally find what you're lookin' for
 G   
Old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
     D/F#
Yes, old Dan, somethin' happenin' to you
   Em                   Asus              A7      D
I hope that you finally find what you're lookin' for

D
Then came the message from old Doc Jones 
     G
That Dan's time had finally come
     Em7                       Asus       A7         D
So I rushed to his side in the shack that he called home
   D          
Inside my heart I was feelin' so sad
             G  
But when I looked into that old man's eyes
   Em7                       Asus              A7    D
I felt such a peace 'cause I knew that he was goin' home
      D 
He couldn't really speak  'cause he was now so weak
        G
But he managed a tiny smile
          Em                      Asus              
And in a glance I knew that he'd found 
             A7      D
What he was lookin' for
 



 D       
I knew what he'd found in the woods that day
               G
'Cause when I looked at him the very last time
  Em                        Asus         A7        D    D7
I looked into the face of a man who had found the Lord

G          
Old Dan, somethin' happened to you
      D/F#
Yes, old Dan, somethin' happened to you
   Em                   Asus               A7      D
I know that you finally found what you're lookin' for
G     
Old Dan, somethin' happened to you
     D/F#     
Yes, old Dan, somethin' happened to you
        Em                      A7        
You're still the old Dan that I love, but you're somethin'
