THIS OLD GUITAR
This old guitar taught me to sing a love song
This old guitar gave me my lovely lady
This old guitar gave me my life my living
it showed me how to laugh and how to cry.
it opened up her eyes and ears to me
all the things you know I love to do
It introduced me to some friends of mine
it brought us close together
to serenade the stars that shine
and brightened up some days
and I guess it broke her heart
from a sunny mountain-side
and helped me make it through some lonely nights. Oh.
it opened up the space for us to be
and most of all to sing my songs for you
What a friend to have on a cold and lonely night
What a lovely place and a lovely space to be.
I love to sing my songs for you.
Yes I do, you know and I love to sing my songs for you
