Mischief Brew Old Tyme Memry Intro: D G Bm A G D A x2 D G Bm When father bought the farm, we sold the farm A G Mistook his blood for rustic charm D A Sold his ghost as an antique to the city D G Bm A G Kids today cant hold a spade, rest in peace your weary trade D A In this world there is no place, such a pity D G Bm The barman shakes his head and fills my glass A G Says were living in the past D A Why preserve a dying craft and its misery? D G Bm I sigh and say another modern man, A G One of property, not land D A So I hold out this battered hand Will you listen? (Chorus) D G Come sit down, were lamenting Bm A About yesterdays sad ending G D About the water in me whiskey A And the brass passed off as gold D G Another round, were descending Bm A In to Old Tyme Memry G D Of a day when wood was wooden A Silver silver, gold was gold D Sweet home was home G Bm A G D A *Same chord progression as previous verses is also used for the remaining verses.* So youve got a new stove in your second home Runs on gas but looks like oak Hell, it even gives off smoke and glowing embers Theres a quilt hung on the wall reads Home Sweet Home Below some wise word from Thoreau And they call me throwback when I cry Remember! (Chorus) And son these tools are artifacts Endangered species left its tracks Lock me up behind plastic glass in the city Cos theres no going back for me This antique rustics eulogy Shall be sold as folk artistry Such a pity... But Ill never understand Why they all only use those hands To build a stead that will always stand in old time country But settle for white rooms and hollow doors Paper ceilings, padded floors Luxury boxes where youre stored in what was country. (Chorus Twice)
