Steel Guitar Rag

Merle Travis

 Been travelin' around, seen many a town,
Maybe you'll find I'm the kind of guy that brags.
But take it from me and see, if you don't agree
No melody rolls, like that ole steel guitar rag.

And when they slide that thing, along the strings
It sounds so dawg gone heavenly, you'll hear them angels sing
When you start your feet, you're heart will beat,
rhythm of that ole steel guitar rag.

You maybe kinda choosy about the kind of songs you hear,
You may like them that's bluesy , make you cry right in your beer,
But if you want a song that's bound to drive away your tears,
Make happy your soul with that ole Steel Guitar Rag
