William Elliott Whitmore - Porchlight chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I did the best I could to lay out the chord changes to make the downbeats
visible. It's in a triple meter, and hopefully with a couple listenings you
should be able to figure out how the chords fit the lyrics in all the verses.


Verse:
       D                                G
The    sweetest labor that my heart has known
       D          A              D
is the farm       on which I     stand.
       D                                G
ĎCause every single seed thatís been    sown
       D          A              D
was    put in the ground by my   hand and
       G                         D
some - times the sun goes down a little too soon 
       D                         A
be  -  fore the dayís work is    through 
       G                         D
and    I keep on going by the    light of the moon when 
       D          A              D
Iíd    rather be  home with      you

Chorus:
          
          D        
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
          A                            D
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
          D                                         G
I come    home from the field when itís too dark to see.
          D               A            D
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
            
Verse:
I can barely stand up, thereís more to be done. Oh, the bottom field needs to be plowed.
I never asked help from anyone, but Lord I can use some now.
Just give me the strength to make it back home when I canít work no more,
and Lord let her be the first thing I see when I crawl through that front door.

Chorus:
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
To light my way back from the night so black
would you leave the porch light on for me?

Verse:
Well Iím sick as a dog and no one can help. Oh, the painís more than I can bear,
but still my thoughts drift to the one sweet gift: the love that we share,
and I hate for you to see me like this. Oh, remember when I was strong.
If I didnít have these IVs in my wrist well, Iíd hold you in my arms.

Chorus:
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
This hospital bed is where Iíve to be.
Would you leave the porch light on for me?

Verse:
They say that I ainít got long for this life Oh, they say that itís my time to go.
Darling, youíve been the most wonderful wife that any man could know.
Well you stuck by me through thick and through thin since the day you became my bride,
and someday Iíll hope to see you again when we meet on the other side.

Chorus:
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
Even though just a memory is all that Iíll be.
Would you leave the porch light on for me?

Even though just a memory is all that I'll be....
Would you leave the porch light on for me?
