Perfectly Good Guitar _ John Hiatt


Am         Em        G    D    C    Em

Am         Em    D   G    D    C     D

Em         D         Em

          Em                     G
Well he threw one down form the top of the stairs
 Am                     C          D
beautiful women were staning everywhere
      Em                    G
they all got wet when he smahed that thing 
     Am                        D             G
but off in the dark you could hear somebody sing

        Am               Em
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
  G          C        D       G
smashing a perfectly good guitar
    Am                  Em
i don;t know who they think they are
  D           G        C     D
smashing a perfectly good guitar

Em          D         Em
Em          D         Em

it started back in 1963
his momma wounlt buy him
that new red harmony
he settled fgor a sunburt with a crack
but he's still trying to break his momma's back.


Solo  Guitar - Same Chords as intro.

he loved that guitar just like a girlfriend
but ever good thing comes to an end
now he just sits in his room all day
whistling every note he used to play

there out to be a law with no bail
smash a guitar and you go to jail
with no chance for early parole
you don;t get out till you get some soul


late at night the end of the road
he wished he still had the old guitar to hold
he'd rock it like a baby in his arms
never let it come ot any harm

Does anyone have the rest of the lyrics handy? And some 'tab' for the whistling solo ;-) Thanks in advance.

Why only 3 stars? If you have a better tab, post it.

I think 7 misspelled words has something to do with it, not to mention numerous grammatical errors. If you want to get picky, the first word in each line should be capitalized. So yeah, 3 stars.
