Perfectly Good Guitar

Well he threw one down from the top of the stairs
 AmCD
beautiful women were standing everywhere
 EmG
they all got wet when he smahed that thing
 AmDG
but off in the dark you could hear somebody sing
 AmEm
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
 GCDEm
smashing a perfectly good guitar
 AmEmD
I don't know who they think they  are
 GCDEm
smashing a perfectly good guitar

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

chorus
