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
