Default A song I wrote today

This is called OLD GUITARS

The old bluesmen from down in Mississippi
With Sears & Roebuck guitars from the thirties
Wailin' away with their plaintive sound
Created a style that's still around

The hillbillies from the Appalachians
All the way south down to the Cajuns
With Martin guitars, fiddles and banjos
Created their style so the story goes

Young kids with electric guitars
Singin' about girls, surfin' and cars
And anything else you can think of
Created a style we all love

OLD GUITARS ON THE WALL TELL A STORY
THEY'RE STILL IN THEIR DAYS OF GLORY
MILLIONS BEGAN PLAYIN' 'EM IN '64
AFTER THE BEATLES CAME TO AMERICA'S SHORE
SO MANY OLD GUITARS ARE STILL AROUND
SCARRED FROM HARD NIGHTS ON THE TOWN
AND YOU KNOW THE WORLD STILL SINGS
TO MUSIC FROM OLD GUITAR STRINGS

Old guitars all down through the ages
Have been played on so many stages
From Carnegie Hall to the GrandOl' Opry
That's where the best pickers wanna be

Local bars to weekend jam sessions
Millions of pickers who never took lessons
Playin' melodies with chords one, four & five
Keepin' their dreams of stardom alive

Even though most will never get there
Guitar music they still wanna share
Old guitars become their lifelong friends
Here's hopin' their music never ends

OLD GUITARS ON THE WALL TELL A STORY
THEY'RE STILL IN THEIR DAYS OF GLORY
MILLIONS BEGAN PLAYIN' 'EM IN '64
AFTER THE BEATLES CAME TO AMERICA'S SHORE
SO MANY OLD GUITARS ARE STILL AROUND
SCARRED FROM HARD NIGHTS ON THE TOWN
AND YOU KNOW THE WORLD STILL SINGS
TO MUSIC FROM OLD GUITAR STRINGS
