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
