The old master painter from the faraway hills Painted the violets and the daffodils He put the purple in the twilight haze Then did a rainbow for the rainy days Dreamed up the murals on the blue summer skies Painted the Devil in my darlin's eyes Captured the dreamer with a thousand thrills That old master painter from the faraway hills Then came his masterpiece and when he was through He smiled down from Heaven and he gave me you What a beautiful job on that wonderful day The old master painter from the hills far away (Instrumental Break) The old master painter from the faraway hills Painted the violets and the daffodils He put the purple in the twilight haze Then did a rainbow for the rainy days Dreamed up the murals on the blue summer skies Painted the Devil in my darlin's eyes Captured the dreamer with a thousand thrills That old master painter from the faraway hills Then came his masterpiece and when he was through He smiled down from Heaven and he gave me you What a beautiful job on that wonderful day The old master painter from the hills far away Far away, far away What a beautiful job on that wonderful day The old master painter from the hills far away Far away, far away (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2015)
