Steel Guitar Rag Merle Travis
The Steel Guitar Rag as sung by Merle Travis
[G]Been travelin' around, seen many a town,
Maybe you'll find I'm the [D7]kind of guy that [G]brags.
But take it from me and [G7]see, if[C] you don't a[G]gree
No melody rolls, like that[D7] ole steel guitar[G] rag.
And when they[C] slide that thing, a[G]long the strings
It[A7] sounds so dawg gone heavenly, you'll[D7] hear them angels sing
When you[C] start your feet, you're[G] heart will beat,
A [D7]rhythm of that ole steel guitar [G]rag.
You maybe kinda choosy about the kind of songs you hear,
You may like them that's bluesy , make you[D7] cry right in your beer,
But[G] if you want a song that's bound to[C] drive away your tears,
Make happy your[G] soul with that[D7] ole Steel Guitar[G] Rag
