Fiddler's Heaven

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

A new Hunter/Lauderdale song in 2012.

Charlie Bowman, tune your fiddle
Uncle Norm Edmonds, rosin your bow
A A Gray, come on and play
Rap your fiddle and saw away

Gone to fiddler's heaven just to see
Listen to the music that used to be
Bill Hamilton Stepp playing wild and free
His "Ways Of The World" so sweet to me

Play your fiddle
Make my soul rejoice
Play your fiddle
And give my heart a voice

Play your fiddle
Over hills and far away
Play your fiddle
All through the night till day

"Devil In The Strawstack" on the level
Must be Thomas Jefferson Jarrell
And all them angels gonna flip their wigs
When old Ed Haley plays "Humphrey's Jig"

Don't forget about old Bob Wills
The man who plays the fiddle and kills
"Sail Away Ladies" by Uncle Bunt Stevens
"Sugar On The Floor", don't think of leaving

Play your fiddle
Make my soul rejoice
Play your fiddle
And give my heart a voice

Play your fiddle
Over hills and far away
Play your fiddle
All through the night till day

"Shenadoah Waltz" with Chubby Wise
Can't help bring tears to both my eyes
Kenny Baker "Walking In My Sleep"
They just don't make them like him today

Vassar put the jazz in bluegrass
Playing violin with style and class
While Uncle [Bin Bender Beer] from [Rozene]
Could make his fiddle walk, talk and sing

Play your fiddle
Make my soul rejoice
Play your fiddle
And give my heart a voice

Play your fiddle
Over hills and far away
Play your fiddle
All through the night till day
All through the night till day
