D                                             D
This old guitar ain't mine to keep
                              Cadd9		G6 
Just taking care of it now
D 					  D
It's been around for years and years
                               Cadd9		G6
Just waiting in its old case
D 					       D
It's been up and down the country roads
		 	      Cadd9		G6	
It's brought a tear and a smile
D                                                       D
It's seen its share of dreams and hopes
			   Cadd9		G6
And never went out of style
D                                                     D
The more I play it, the better it sounds
                                  Cadd9		G6
It cries when I leave it alone
D                               D
Silently it waits for me
			  Cadd9		G6
Or someone else I suppose



D                         D
This old guitar
                Cadd9		G6

D                    G6

D					     D
This old guitar has caught some breaks
                           Cadd9		G6
But it never searched for gold
D				         D
It can't be blamed for my mistakes
                      Cadd9
It only does what it's told
D					        D
It's been a messenger in times of trouble
			 Cadd9			D
In times of hope and fear
D					 D
When I get drunk and seeing double
                                              Cadd9
It jumps behind the wheel and steers
D                                            D
This old guitar ain't mine to keep
                      Cadd9		G6
It's mine to play for a while
D				       D
This old guitar ain't mine to keep
Cadd9		  G6
It's only mine for a while

(and so on…)
