This old guitar                 John Denver

   C              G                Am      Em
1. This old guitar taught me to    sing a  love song
2. This old guitar gave me my love-ly      lady
3. This old guitar gave me my      life my living

   F                         G7          C
1. it showed me how to laugh and how to  cry.
2. it opened up her eyes     and ears to me
3. all the things you know   I love to   do

   Am       F                   G
1. It intro-duced me to some friends of mine
2. it       brought us close together
3. to       serenade the     stars that shine

       C                      Am
1. and brightened up some    days
2. and I guess it broke her  heart
3.     from a sunny mountain-side

       F                      G7            C         Am
1. and helped me make it thru  some lonely  nights. Oh.
2. it  opened up the space for us to be
3. and most of all to sing my  songs for you

   Am     F                   G7              C
1. What a friend to have on a cold and lonely night
2. What a lovely place and a  lovely space to be.
3.             I love to song my songs for    you.

         Am           F               G7              C
3. Yes I do, you know and I love to sing my songs for you

The Am or Am7 is right though it needs some explanation. He plays the C before it and then walks down the baseline playing G/C x2003x, Am7 x02010, Am7/G 302010 before landing on the F 133211.

the chords are right on the money. I play this with a capo on 2 and it sounds perfect
