Lyrics Edit

That old master painter from the faraway hills painted the violets and the daffodills
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
The 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
That old master painter from the hills far away
