Lyrics

in the house where we would go

when I was a child and all of my family were there

there's an old violin that hangs on the wall

by a picture at the foot of the stair

 

and many were the nights 

we would fall into bed at the end of a long summer day

and our dreams would take flight in the fading light

to the tunes that my grandfather played

 

and time slowed down to listen to the sound

of the music that floated through the hall

at the end of the day when Grandfather played

that old violin on the wall

 

and he told me once that when he was young

a travelling show came to town

and the fiddler in the band was a drinking man

but he played with a beautiful sound

 

so Grandfather stayed and while the band would play

he'd listen again and again

and the fiddler must have known

cause when the show moved on he left behind an old violin

 

and time slowed down...

 

now the house still remains though so many things have changed

there are pictures where the family would have been

and Grandfather's there in a frame by the stairs

next to that old violin

 

and time slows down to listen to the sound

of the music that floats through the hall

at the end of the day when Grandfather plays

that old violin on the wall,

the end of the day Grandfather plays

that old violin on the wall
