D-18
Recorded by Norman Blake
Written by Jerry Faires

G C
In a pawn shop in Odessa in the fall of ’64
D7 G
The pawn shop man was leavin’ he was lockin’ up the door
C
I ran up just in time and I holler’d just through the screen
D7
Hey man you got any good guitars in here
G
He said I got this D-18

C
So I gave him a hundred dollars and I took that sucker home
D7 G
I cleaned it up and strung it hit a chord and heard that tone
C
It was crisp and clean rich and full all a guitar ought to be
D7 G
I said thank you Mr. Martin you made this D-18 for me

D7 G
I said thank you Mr. Martin I’m alright
D7 C G
Cause once again this old guitar helped me through the night
C
I’m mighty grateful to you you know how to make ’em right
D7 G
I said thank you Mr. Martin I’m alright

C
If I’m feelin’ down and worthless and I haven’t got a dime
D7 G
Wonderin’ if I spent my life just wastin’ my time
C
I pick up that old guitar some paper and a pen
D7 G
I say thank you Mr. Martin you saved my life again

C
I’ve written songs about my lovers my family and my friends
D7 G
My wife my child the old home place and the road that never ends
C
Heroes hobos rock’n’roll and a honky tonk queen
D7 G
I wrote ’em all without exception on my Martin D-18

Repeat #3

C
Now it was made way back in ’43 when I was just a kid
D7 G
I believe it’s about the best thing Mr. Martin ever did
C
It plays real good stays in tune and never treats me mean
D7 G
Thank God for Mr. Martin and that fine old D-18

C
Well there’s your Gallagher your Gibson your Goya Gretsch and Guild
D7 G
I’ve played every kind of guitar that them guitar makers build
C
I’ve picked on a lot of axes but the best I’ve ever seen
D7 G
Is my funky beat up wonderful old Martin D-18

Repeat #3
