Paycheck, Johnny - The Old Blind Fiddler Lyrics



When I was just a kid I'd go to town on Saturday
And on the street I'd listen to the old blind fiddler play
He was close to no one though his life was almost gone
But to me he was my friend and always played such pretty song

People dropped their nickels in his cup as they walked by
Sometimes he would play so sad yet I just have to cry
And one day I went to town to hear the old man play
But he was gone and someone said the old man passe away

I can still hear him playing

And when people stop to listen
He would say God walked beside you all the way
And I'd listen to the old blind fiddler play

A week or so ago one night I had the strangest dream
I dreamed I went to heaven and I heard a million strings
A standing there I heard the music blow from heaven sky
And for the first time in my life I saw the color of his eyes

And I can still hear them playing

And he shook my hand and he told me
Son I knew we'd meet again some day
And once again I heard the old blind fiddler play

    I defy anyone to tell me that there has ever been a better country singer than Johnny Paycheck, he was incredible to say the least. He had so many great songs, Old Violin, I Did The Right Thing, The Outlaws Prayer, I Grow Old Too Fast and Smart too Slow, I've Seen Better Days, Yesterdays News Just Hit Home Today, She's All I Got, The Woman Who Put Me Here, D.O.A. Drunk Arrival and this list just goes on and on, I would need a page to list them all. What a great talent he was, so so so so underrated

    James Brown

    I been following Johnny Paycheck and George Jones since the 70's !!!!
