Flat Top Gibson Guitar Recorded by Lloyd Snow Written by Pat Maher [3/4 time]
G D7 The first day I saw him I'll never forget G Downtown on the sidewalk where we first met C On a small wooden stand by the old timer's bar G D7 He was singing a song strumming along G On an old flat top Gibson guitar
D7 His tall weary frame showed long years of neglect G And his pride had been buried beside his respect C Recalling the day pushed his memory too far G D7 But when all's said and done he was second to none G On that old flat top Gibson guitar
D7 On warm summer's evening when hours were mine G I'd be down there with him from seven till nine C A boy of twelve years dreaming of being a star G D7 So he taught me to play in his own special way G On that old flat top Gibson guitar
D7 We grew as close as father and son G Yet we knew that the time for the parting would come C Then came the night he was not by the bar G D7 I felt so alone that I cried going home G For him and that old flat top Gibson guitar
D7 My mother was standing by our garden gate G Pointing to a car leaving dust in its wake C Your friend came by she said in that old car G D7 And he left on the lawn what you wanted so long G An old flat top Gibson guitar
D7 The years have gone by and I'm up with the greats G I traveled all over the United States C And I've searched every crowd but with no luck so far G D7 Wonder where could he be and does he see me G Still playing that old flat top Gibson guitar
