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

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  C
it helped me make it thru  some lonely nights.     Oh
F                          G               C     Em - Am - C - F - G
What a friend to have on a cold and lonely night.

 

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.


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.

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

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