The Lemonade Song
words and music by Mitch McVicker

  G                     Bm                            
Jim came  walkin' down the road
          C                         G                
Singin' songs and hummin' on hymn tunes
    G               Bm              C              D     
Though he'd never set foot in a church on Sunday morning
 G                 Bm                      C            
The smile on his face looked kinda outta place
                          G                         
Considerin' the looks of his shirt and shoes
  G         C                    G                    
Made me wonder what kept him going


G                             Bm                      
Spent most of his lonely young days
    C                    G                           
Working' downtown in the sawmill
 G          Bm         C                 D               
And a childhood is somethin' he's never known
  G           Bm                  C                     
All the extra time he had on his mind
                          G                         
Every now and then his heart would spill
 G                C                 G                 
And he'd start singin' all the way home



Chorus
              Am                 D                      
And  he'd sing I, I don't know much
   Am          D                                      
But I know a Love
                     G               Bm               C
And one day I'll be sittin' up in heaven on an easy chair
             D                G                      
Sippin' lemonade, love lives there


   G              Bm               C                    
Round 'bout that time the bells chimed
              G                                      
And the church doors flew open
      G        Bm                 C                  D  
And a whole herd of saints came runnin' along Jim's way
    G             Bm            C                      
Talkin' 'bout salvation, hope and love
        G                                           
And everything else they didn't  know about
    G              C                G                 
And when they saw Jim all of that changed


 G           Bm                 C                      
Now it takes a special kind of man
           G                                        
To avoid a confrontation
    G             Bm             C            D         
And everywhere Jimmy looked  he had nowhere to go
  G              Bm                                   
They started throwin' out names,
           C                      G                  
Throwin' punches, and throwin' laughter
    G                     C                             G
And when they were through, blood was drippin' from his nose



Chorus
          Am                      D                    
And he sang I, I've heard about blood
 Am                    D                              
I think it stands for Love
                        G             Bm             C 
And one day I'll be sittin' up in heaven on an easy chair
           D                    G                    
Sippin' lemonade, loves lives there


 G               Bm                   C               
Now Jim knew what he had inside of him
                     G                              
And wouldn't hear nothin' different
   G            Bm                 C           D        
The moral to the story is he just keeps on keepin' on
  G               Bm                                  
Now he ain't whitewashed,
            C                      G                  
You won't find him on the corner prayin'
G          C                          G               
He just knows his Love and knows his song



Chorus
          Am                  D                       
And he sings I, I got all I want
Am                   D                                
'Cause I've got my love
                     G                Bm               C 
And one day I'll be sittin' up in heaven on an easy chair
           D                   G                     
Sippin' lemonade, love lives there
                       G                Bm               C
Yeah, one day I'll be sittin' up in heaven on an easy chair
           D                   G                     
Sippin' lemonade, love lives there
                       G                Bm               C
Yeah, one day I'll be sittin' up in heaven on an easy chair
           D                   G    Bm C D G                  
Sippin' lemonade, love lives there
