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
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
