    This old guitar and me
    And the things that we've been through
    C.F. Martin built him
    Back in nineteen fourty-two.

    I remember when we met
    I was only seventeen
    I spent all my college money
    On a half a dozen strings.

    I thought my folks would kill me
    I found out I was wrong
    They said your future's written on your face
    When you sing those travelin' songs.

    So we headed for Kentucky
    With a suitcase full of dreams
    My rough-out books, a few t-shirts
    A worn out pair of jeans.


    This old guitar and me
    We spent a lot of nights alone
    Well, sometimes we'd get lucky
    And take bar maid home.

    One night stands for breakfast
    Two strangers with the blues
    We'd wake up in the morning
    And both feel a little used.

    Well, home was just a highway
    We'd roam from town to town
    Just me and that old flattop
    Not caring where we're bound.

    >From Maine to California
    With a five piece travelin' band
    Singin' songs about the hard times
    That face the common man.


    This old guitar and me
    Lord, we did the best we could
    One was born a sinner
    And one a piece of wood.

    God sent a wooden angel
    To guide me on my way
    We were meant to be together
    Until my dyin' day.

    Well, now my dearest old companion
    Lies underneath my bed
    Well, our travelin' days are over
    Man, but the memories fill my head.

    Well, I've settled with my family
    Here in the hills of Tennessee
    To teach my children's children
    'Bout this old guitar and me.
