Six Strings Away  Waylon Jennings

[A]In days gone by [D]but not forgotten I [E]plowed in the fields and I [A]pulled in the cotton
[D]Things you'd never think I've done when you see me [E]now
[A]I pick and sing and they [D]think I'm a star but [E]every time I look down at [A]my old guitar
I know I'm [D]just six strings a[E]way from that same ol' [A]plow
Chorus 1:
I drive a [D]new Royce Rolls, buy them tailor made clothes
[A]How long will good times stay
[A]A poor boy ways and [D]hard time days
Are [E]just six strings a[A]way
I met a girl bout a year ago in a little country town where I played a show
And though I love her I still wonder just what she'd do
If I laid that old guitar down, how long would she hang around
Or is she just six strings away from someone new
Chorus 2:
Well them six little strings buy rings and good things
But how long would she stay
If she knew poor boy ways and and hard time days
Were just six strings away
