The Guitar Lyrics

Well, I was passing by a pawn shop
In an older part of town
Something caught my eye
And I stopped and turned around

I stepped inside and there I spied
In the middle of it all
Was a beat up old guitar
Hanging on the wall”

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

What do you want for that piece of junk”
I asked the old man
He just smiled and took it down
And he put it in my hand

He said you tell me what it’s worth
You’re the one who wants it
Tune it up, play a song
And let’s just see what haunts it

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

So I hit a couple of cords
In my old country way of strumming
And then my fingers turned to lightning
Man, I never heard it coming

It was like I always knew it
I just don’t know where I learned it
It wasn’t nothin’ but the truth
So I just reared back and burned it

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

Well I lost all track of time
There was nothing I couldn’t pick
Up and down the neck
Man, I never missed a lick

The guitar almost played itself
There was nothing I could do
It was getting hard to tell
Just who was playing who

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

When I finally put it down
I couldn’t catch my breath
My hands were shaking
And I was scared to death

The old man finally got up
Said, “Where in the hell you been?
I’ve been waiting all these years
Just for you to stumble in”

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

Then he took down an old dusty case
And said go on and pack it up
You don’t owe me nothing
And then he said good luck

There was something spooky in his voice
And something strange on his face
When he shut the lid
I saw my name was on the case

Guitar Chords


Well, I was passing by a pawn shop

In an older part of town

Somethin’ caught my eye

And I stopped and turned around

I stepped inside an’ there I spied

In the middle of it all

Was a beat up old guitar

Hangin’ on the wall.

“What do you want for that piece of junk?”

I asked the old man

He just smiled and took it down

And he put it in my hand

He said, “You tell me what it’s worth

You’re the one who wants it

Turn it up, play a song

And let’s just see what haunts it.”


So I hit a couple of cords

In my old country way of strumming

And then my fingers turned to lightnin’

Man, I never heard it comin’


It was like I always knew it

I just don’t know where I learned it

It wadn’t nothin’ but the truth

So I just reared back and burned it


Well, I lost all track of time

There was nothing I couldn’t pick

Up and down the neck

Man.. I never missed a lick


The guitar almost played itself

There was nothing I could do

It was getting hard to tell

Just who was playing who


When I finally put it down

I couldn’t catch my breath

My hands were shakin’

And I was scared to death

The old man finally got up

Said, “where in the Hell you been?

I’ve been waiting all these years

For you to stumble in”

Then he took down an old dusty case

Said, “go on and pack it up,

You don’t owe me nothing”

And then he said, “good luck”

There was somethin’ spooky in his voice

And somethin’ strange on his face

When he shut the lid

I saw my name was on the case
