The Old Man Lyrics And Chords by Phil Coulter Recorded by The Fureys And Davie Arthur, also by Celtic Thunder and John McDermot. Some people call this song ''My Old Man'' , it's one of the most popular songs on the site and Finbart Furey does the best version I've ever heard.

The tears have all been shed now,we've said our last goodbye's,
His soul's been blessed,he's laid to rest,and it's now I feel alone,
He was more that just a father,a teacher my best friend,
And he can still be heard in the tunes we shared,as we played them on our own.
[Chorus]
I never will forget him for he made me what I am,
Though he may be gone memories linger on,
And I miss him,the old man.
[2]
As a boy he'd take me walking,through mountain field and stream,
And he'd show me things not known to kings,a secret between him and me,
Like the colours of the pheasent,as she rises in the dawn,
And how to fish and make a wish,beside the holy tree.
[3]
Ithought he'd live forever,he seemed so big and strong,
But the minuits fly,the years roll by,for a father and his son,
Then suddenly when it happened,there was so much unsaid,
No second chance to tell him thanks for everything he's done. 

The[G] tears have all been[C] shed now,we've[D] said our last good[G]bye's,
His soul's been blessed,he's[Am] laid to rest,and it's [A]now I feel[D] alone,
He was[G] more that just a[C] father,a[D] teacher my best[G] friend,
And he can still be heard in the[Am] tunes we[A] shared,as we played them on our[D] own.[D7]
[Chorus]
I[C] never will[G] forget him for he[C] made me what I [G]am,
Though he may be[Em] gone memories[D] linger[Em] on,
And I[Am] miss him,[D]the old[G] man.
[2]
As a boy he'd take me walking,through mountain field and stream,
And he'd show me things not known to kings,a secret between him and me,
Like the colours of the pheasent,as she rises in the dawn,
And how to fish and make a wish,beside the holy tree.
[3]
Ithought he'd live forever,he seemed so big and strong,
But the minuits fly,the years roll by,for a father and his son,
Then suddenly when it happened,there was so much unsaid,
No second chance to tell him thanks for everything he's done.
