Guitar Man Recorded by Elvis Presley Written by Jerry Reed
C Well I quit my job down at the car wash
I left my momma a goodbye note
By sundown I’d left Kingston
With my guitar under my coat F I hitch-hiked all the way down to Memphis
Got a room at the Y.M.C.A. C For the next three weeks I went a hauntin’ them night clubs G7 C Lookin’ for a place to play G7 Well I thought my pickin’ would set ‘em on fire F C But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man
Well I nearly bout starved to death down in Memphis
I run outta money and luck
So I bummed me a ride down to Macon Georgia
On a overloaded poultry truck F I thumbed on down to Panama City
Started pickin’ out some of them all-night bars C Hopin’ I could make myself a dollar G7 C Makin’ music on my guitar G7 I got the same old story at them all night piers F C There ain’t no room around here for a guitar man
F So I slept in the hobo jungles
I bummed a thousand miles of track C Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama
In a club they call Big Jack’s F A little four piece band was jammin’
So I took my guitar and I sat in D7 I showed ‘em what a band would sound like G7 C With a swingin’ little guitar man show ‘em son
So if you ever take a trip down to the ocean
Find yourself down around Mobile
Well make it out to a club called Jack’s
If you got a little time to kill F Just follow that crowd of people
You’ll wind up out on his dance floor C Diggin’ the finest little five piece group G7 C Up and down the Gulf of Mexico G7 And guess who’s leadin’ that five piece band F C Wouldn’t you know it’s that swingin’ little guitar man
