Bees in His Walls –Joanne Rand 6/15/10 (dedicated to Tom King)


A A
He’s got bees in his walls and mice in his attic
A A
And his arbor’s tumbling down
D D
But he’s a good-looking man
A A
He’s a good-hearted man
E E A A
And he’s keeping it all together…Best as he can.

A A
Well his apple orchard’s growing in poison oak
A A
Upholstery is cracking on his favorite chair
D D
But he’s a good-looking man
A A
He’s a good-hearted man
E E A A
And he’s keeping it all together…Best as he can.


D D
He always looks nice
A A
In his clean white shorts
E E
And his clean white shoes
A A
And his clean white hair,
D D
And he always acts nice
A A
‘Cept for when he don’t
E E
But that ain’t news
E E (D,C#,B)
That we need to share.



A A
Clock’s stopped ticking and the TV’s off
A A
Photo’s are fading on his Frigidaire
D D
But he’s a good-looking man
A A
He’s a good-hearted man
E E A A
And he’s keeping it all together…Best as he can.

D D
Fifty years of mementos
A A
Who knows where the time goes
E E
His loyalty and love shows
A A
Only the ghost knows.
D D
Do you think that she’s in there

A A
Giving him all her tender-loving care?
D A
Could she be waiting for him like he’s waiting for her?
E E (D,C#,B)
…Or do you think that’s square?


A A
Clock’s stopped ticking and the TV’s off
A A
Photo’s are fading on his Frigidaire
D D
But he’s a good-looking man
A A
He’s a good-hearted man
E E
Gotta love that man…
D D
Gotta love that man…
E E D C# A7
Gotta love that man…long as you can!
