This Old Guitar  John Denver

capo 2nd

    [C]  [G]  [Am]  [Em]  [F]  [G]  [C]  [G]  [Am]  [G]  [F]  [G]                               
1.  [C]This old gu[G]itar taught me to si[Am]ng a [Em]love song
    [F]It showed me how to [G]laugh and how to  c[C]ry.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G]
    It introdu[F]ced me to some [G]friends of mine, and [C]brightened [G/B]up some [Am]days,
    And [F]helped me make it t[G]hrough  some lonely n[C]ights.   [G/B] [Am]Oh [Am/G]
    What a f[F]riend to have on a [G]cold and lonely [C]night.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G] [F] [G]

2.  [C]This old gu[G]itar gave me my [Am]lovely [Em]lady
    [F]It opened up her [G]eyes and ears to [C]me.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G]
    [F]It brought us close [G]together, I [C]guess it [G/B]broke her [Am]heart,
    It [F]opened up the [G]space for us to [C]be.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G]
    What a l[F]ovely place and a [G]lovely space to [C]be.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G] [F] [G]

3.  [C]This old gu[G]itar gave me my [Am]life, my [Em]living.
    [F]All the things you [G]know I love to [C]do.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G]
    [F]To serenade the [G]stars that shine from a [C]sunny [G/B]mountain [Am]side
    And [F]most of all to [G]sing my songs for [C]you.   [G/B] [Am] [Am/G]  
    [F] I love to [G]sing my songs for [C]you. [G/B]Yes I [Am]do, you know.
    [F]I love to [G]sing my songs for [C]you.
