Did You Hear John Hurt?
Play in A ( capo up 2)
G C G
It was a frosty night, it was beginning to snow,
And on the city streets,the wind began to blow,
We all came to the cellar we all emptied the bar.
To hear a little fellow play a shiny guitar.
Did you hear John Hurt- play the Creole Bell?
Spanish Fandango? That he loved so well?
And did you love John Hurt? Did you shake his hand?
C G D
Did you hear him play his Candy Man?
On a straight back chair, with his felt hat on
He tickled our fancy with his "Avalon"
And everyone passing down on Toulouse Street
Would cock their heads and listen to the tapping feet.
. Paxton Tom lyrics
