There are also several other hammer-ons and pull-offs withing the chords that are played at times, and not at other times. Doing all of them takes some practice. I suggest starting with the D down, and adding the others one at a time. (intro) C G, C G D, C G Em D down (verse)
C G C G DWe were sittin' round the supper table and the buzz of the frigidaire
C G Em DWas the only sound 'til momma laid down, a book she found upstairs
C GIt was covered in dust in the back of the closet,
C G C GGoodwill box we almost tossed it out
Em D We could have lost all those memories
GThere was a picture of mama in the pouring rain
Em Ticket stubs to a Braves game
Am C D Silver star and a baggage claim from Hanoi, Vietnam
G There was a picture of him callin' on grandpa
Em Leather skin from a baseball
Am D We laughed and cried, told stories all night long
D C G,C G D,C G Em D downFrom the book of John
C G C G D Now the pot of coffee's almost gone, as we turn another page
C G Em DWe're climbing on him like a Jungle Jim, watching his hair turn gray
C G All the Polaroids are just reminders,
C G You can't hold life in a three ring binder
C G DWe flipped on through 'em anyway
GThere's a picture at his sister taken in July
EmOn the steps of the church pulling out his tie
Am C D Hair's still wet from gettin' baptized, the brand new blue suit on
GAn old set of keys to his Chevrolet
EmA crumpled up receipt for a wedding ring
Am DWe watched ourselves grow up there in his arms
DIn the book of John
(instrumental) C G, C G, C G C (out)
DThat sun came up, we were wide awake
CHead to toe in black and gray
G DLong black Lincoln waiting down the drive
DHe was father, son, husband and friend
CI still flip through it every now and then
G D downWhen I need just a few words of advice
C G Em DIt's almost like he's not really gone
C G Em D And I know one day I'll be passin' on
C G,C G D,C G Em D/GThe book of John
