  • This Ole Guitar of Mine

    2010 - 10.07

    This ole guitar of mine

    It’s been a friend for sometime

    For more than twenty five years

    The songs that I learned

    The color its turned

    The nights it held back my tears.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    We’ve done some time

    In dusty bars drinkin’ beer

    Through the good and the bad

    Over the miles we’ve had

    It’s always, always been here.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Taught me some rhymes

    12 strings to play the blues

    While women have come and gone

    As I learned new songs

    It was there to stop the tears.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Has made people dance

    And clap and drink all night long

    Some times it gathers dust

    And the strings may rust

    But we always would get it together again.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Has sang some songs

    In places where no one cared

    We’d strum some tunes

    Then sleep till noon

    And get up and do it again.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Go so far back in time

    But the future looks bright ahead

    With strings shiny and new

    My voice still rings true

    And I finally cleared my head.

     

    This ole Guitar of mine.
