WALKIN' JIM STOLTZ


The Old Crystal Bell Lyrics

G Em C Am
1) I remember walkin' long and hard against the cold,
D D7 G
Staggerin' in and warmin' up beside the old woodstove,
G Em C Am
I can see old Billy Bradley givin' teacher hell,
D
Behind her back, but just the same,
D7 G
I think she knew him well.
2) And oh how them old wood floors would creak inside
that little hall,
I remember getting out for harvest in the Fall,
I can hear that Crystal Bell a-ringin' down the lane,
Stayed too long beside the creek,
I'm late for school again.
C D
Refrain: But that bell ain't a-ringin',
G Em
And there ain't no voices singin'
C D G C G
In that old Crystal school anymore,
C D
'Cause the roofs nearly gone,

G Em
Children grown and all moved on,
C D G C G
And there's no one left to hear the bell no more.
3) I recall old Preacher Jones, every other week,
How we dressed up Sunday mornin' from our head down to
our feet.
And dances too, we had our share, we made it quite a
night,
The old men with their jugs out back, the gals all
quite a sight.
(Repeat Refrain)
4) I remember walkin' long and hard against the cold,
Staggerin' in and warmin' up, beside the ol' woodstove,
19 - 21 it was, or was it '22,
Seems like only yesterday, I guess it's been a few.
Bridge: C D G Em
But now an old owls a-roostin' in the bare beams
overhead,
C D D7
And the packrats got the corner staked out for his bed,
C D G Em
And this ain't the place that I used to know so well,
C Em
'Cause they're gone, yes they're gone,
C D G Em
And there's no one left to hear, there's no one left to
hear,
C D G
There's no one left to hear, the crystal bell.
