Golden Guitar Recorded by Bill Anderson Written by Curtis Leach and Billy Gray
C F I happened to walk into a honky tonk one night down in New Orleans G7 C Up above the bar hung a big guitar like none I'd ever seen F The neck was set with diamonds and though the strings were old G7 C Like Kings of Sound they wound around six keys of solid gold
F A man stepped up beside me his breath was strong with wine G7 C He said you know that guitar once belonged to a mighty close pal of mine F He used to play it right here I forget the year around '45 I think G7 C Ha I could tell you quite a story friend if you'd care to buy me a drink
F Well possessed by every weakness that makes a man a fool G7 C I bought a round he drank it down and then he rocked back on his stool F He said yeah I remember now it was '45 alright G7 C He just returned from the Great War that's where he lost his sight
F His buddies gave him that guitar at the time it was simple and plain G7 C He added the gold and the diamonds as he played his way to fame F He was doing a show in Shreveport the night he received the call G7 C To come appear on the Grand Ole Opry the greatest show of all
F I was drivin' him to Nashville it was cold and misting rain G7 The signals flashed and the whistle screamed C But I swear Mr. I never saw that train F I heard the doctor tell him just after he used his knife G7 C You're lucky son it was just your arm it could have been your life
F But he died that night life just demanded more than he could give G7 C I think he couldn’t've made it he just lost his will to live F But this world's loss is heaven's gain and tonight he's still a star G7 C He plays with a band of angels that's my son's golden guitar
