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 stairs.
 
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
[chorus]  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
'cuz when the show moved on
he left behind an old violin
 
[chorus] And time slowed down...
 
Now the house still remains
where so many things have changed
and there are pictures where the family would have been
and Grandfather's there 
in a frame by the stairs
next to that old violin
 
[chorus]  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
