of it now…”

 DD
 This old guitar ain't mine to keep             
 Cadd9G6
Just taking care of it now                       
 DD
 It's been around for years and years       
 Cadd9G6
Just waiting in its old case                     
 DD
 It's been up and down the country roads         
 Cadd9G6
It's brought a tear and a smile                  
 DD
 It's seen its share of dreams and hopes                  
 Cadd9G6
And never went out of style                      
 DD
 The more I play it, the better it sounds               
 Cadd9G6
It cries when I leave it alone                   
 DD
 Silently it waits for me         
 Cadd9G6
Or someone else I suppose                

 DD
 This old guitar            
 Cadd9G6
This old guitar

 DD
 This old guitar has caught some breaks        
 Cadd9G6
But it never searched for gold                   
 DD
 It can't be blamed for my mistakes        
 Cadd9
It only does what it's told
 DD
 It's been a messenger in times of trouble        
 Cadd9D
In times of hope and fear                        
 DD
 When I get drunk and seeing double        
 Cadd9
It jumps behind the wheel and steers           
 DD
 This old guitar ain't mine to keep            
 Cadd9G6
It's mine to play for a while            
 DD
 This old guitar ain't mine to keep      
 Cadd9G6
 It's only mine for a while

(and so on…)

This old guitar
This old guitar
This old guitar
This old guitar
This old guitar
This old guitar
This old guitar
