Well he th[Em]rew one down from the t[G]op of the stairs
b[Am]eautiful women were sta[C]nding everyw[D]here
they a[Em]ll got wet when he sma[G]hed that thing
but o[Am]ff in the dark you could h[D]ear somebody s[G]ing
oh it br[Am]eaks my heart to [Em]see those stars
sm[G]ashing a pe[C]rfectly g[D]ood guit[Em]ar
I do[Am]n't know who they th[Em]ink they [D] are
sm[G]ashing a per[C]fectly go[D]od gui[Em]tar

it started back in 1963
his momma wouldn't buy him
that new red Harmony
he settled for a Sunburst with a crack
but he's still trying to break his momma's back.

chorus

Solo Guitar - Same Chords as intro.

he loved that guitar just like a girlfriend
but every good thing comes to an end
now he just sits in his room all day
whistling every note he ever played

there out to be a law with no bail
smash a guitar and you go to jail
with no chance for early parole
you don't get out till you get some soul

chorus

late at night the end of the road
he wishes he still had that old guitar to hold
he'd rock it like a baby in his arms
never let it come to any harm
