Good people I've met both near and far
And it's all because of this old guitar


Guitar Saves My Life Again

It was in the Spring in the year of '03
I had to get sober to reality
I was going nowhere and getting there fast
But something inside wanted life to last

These devil's hands needed work to do
I smoked those cigarettes 'til I turned blue
Over in the corner was a piece of wood
When I held it in my arms it sure felt good

All alone without a friend
All these roads lead to one end
Make it go just a little more slow
This guitar saved my life again

I fooled around when I was a kid
Had rock star dreams, and thank God I did
'Cause dreaming big don't always score
But it gets you places you never been before

News we don't need, bills we can't pay
Just part of that mountain we move every day
When blues surround me I've got a boon
Gonna light a fire and pick a tune
