C - G - Am - Em      F - G - C - Em - Am - C          F - G

[Verse]
   C                        - G                       Am     Em
      This old guitar      taught me to sing a  love song,
F                                     G                          C     - Em - Am - C
    it showed me how to laugh and how to  cry.
                F                             G
    It introduced me to some friends of mine,
C                          Em          Am    - C
    and brightened up some days,
         F                            G                         C       - Em    Am
    it helped me make it thru  some lonely nights.         Oho.
                  F                             G                     C    - Em - Am - C - F - G
    What a friend to have on a cold and lonely night.
 
[Verse]
   C                        - G                     Am     Em
      This old guitar      gave me my lovely lady,
F                               G                        C     - Em - Am - C
    it opened up her eyes and ears to me.
           F                               G
    It brought us close together,
               C          Em           Am     - C
    and I guess it broke her  heart,
         F                         G                   C       - Em - Am - C
    it  opened up the space for us to be.
                 F               - G                                   C  - Em - Am - C - F - G
    What a lovely place    and a lovely space to be

[Verse]
   C                         - G                     Am       Em
      This old guitar       gave me my life, my living,
F                                        G                  C     - Em - Am - C
    and all the things you know I love to do.
           F                     G
    To serenade the stars that shine
                C          Em        Am   - C
    from a sunny mountain-side,
F                               G                           C       - Em - Am - C
    and most of all to sing my songs for you.
F                 G                          C     Em   Am           C  
    I love to sing my songs for you. Yes I do, you know
F                       G                           C     - Em - Am - C - F  G
    and I love to sing my songs for you.                           M m.

[Outro]
    C    Em - Am - C   F   G                      C   Em  Am  - C    F      G
    M m m..............….hu hu                    you you you..…...wow wow

every time it goes c-em-am-c i just give each chord one beat but hold the am for 2 beats and get rid of that c, it sounds weird going back to the c

I agree with both of you almost perfect lose that odd C flying around though it does not seem to fit!
