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
