FOR BILL MONROE


                     He's just a picture on the wall 
                      of the Bluebird cafe 
                      and he's huggin that fiddle 
                      he's  showin' the way 
                      He's got an old cowboy hat 
                      that's been with him for awhile 
                      He's a fiddler man that 
                      can make that fiddle smile 

                      can make that fiddle cry 
                      make that fiddle sing 
                      make that fiddle bring 
                      a memory of my granddad 
                      and my grandma's  lemonade 
                      and hard work and sunshine 
                      and sleeping in the shade 

                      He's just an old picture on the wall 
                      of the Bluebird cafe 
                      and he's showin' 
                      he's showin' the way 

                      Now I love that old fiddler man 
                      so stomp the floor with me 
                      and he'll take you back to a time 
                      when bluegrass was king 
                      and hardtimes and hard livin' 
                      meant character 
                      and he shared with her and he
                      shared with us 
                      and he huggin' that fiddle 
                      he's showin, he's showin the way 

                      now make that fiddle cry 
                      make that fiddle sing 
                      make that fiddle bring 
                      a memory of my granddad 
                      and my grandma's  lemonade 
                      and hard work and sunshine 
                      and sleeping in the shade 

                      He's just an old picture on the wall
                      of the Bluebird cafe 
                      and he's showin' the way 
                      he's showin' the way
