True story about my childhood barber - "George", who used to fly gyrocopters in the air force. Talking about my childhood barber with my current barber, brought up all these cool memories. #ukulele #delay #firstfruits #ColoradoMusicians
Talkin’ stories like they’ve known you for years (F, F7, BM7, F)
Passing time as they lower your ears
The weather’s fine and how was your day?
Keep those clippers buzzing away.
I knew that he served by the photos I saw
Aircraft like choppers but much too small
Like a helo and a bicycle mashed up in a way
So a single gutsy pilot could fly it a way
Now a different kind of blade he’s mastered for now
Retired from the gyrocopters with a vow
That the only thing he’d take for a spin
Was the barber’s chair I’m sittin’ in.
When I was a boy, the stories were simpler, (Dm, C5 w/ walk-down)
A hotwheels car with the numbered sticker
Racing along the patterned tiles
Avoiding the clumps of hair in piles
Decades later, and long since passed
A memory of George returned from my past
Talking to a barber in much the same way
Rich and I talked gyros for most of the day
