lyrics

MAMA’S GUITAR
IS BATTERED AND WORN
THEY TELL ME SHE BOUGHT IT
BEFORE I WAS BORN
SHE SANG AND SHE PLAYED IT
IN SMOKEY OLD BARS
AND THE FIRST SOUND THAT I HEARD
WAS MAMA’S GUITAR

THEY SAY IT’S A MARTIN
AND SO VERY OLD
THAT I’D BE A RICH MAN
IF EVER IT SOLD
NOW MONEY CAN BUY YOU
A HOUSE AND A CAR
BUT MONEY CAN’T BUY YOU
MAMA’S GUITAR

HER VOICE WAS AS PURE
AS THE NEW FALLIN’ SNOW
AND THERE WASN’T A SONG
THAT SHE DIDN’T KNOW
SHE NEVER GOT FAMOUS
SHE WAS NEVER A STAR
BUT THAT DIDN’T MATTER
TO MAMA’S GUITAR

SHE TAUGHT ME TO PLAY IT
WHEN I WAS JUST FOUR
I SCARCELY COULD HOLD IT
AND MY FINGERS GOT SORE
ONE DAY I DROPPED IT
YOU CAN STILL SEE THE SCAR
THERE’S A FEW THOUSAND MEMORIES
IN MAMA’S GUITAR

HER VOICE WAS AS PURE
AS THE NEW FALLIN’ SNOW
AND THERE WASN’T A SONG
THAT SHE DIDN’T KNOW
MAMA SHE’S GONE NOW
BUT SHE AIN’T GONE THAT FAR
SHE’S ALWAYS HERE WITH ME
IN HER OLD GUITAR

MAMA’S GUITAR IS BATTERED AND WORN
