Second Fiddle To An Old Guitar

Song Author Betty Amos og Guy Willis Performer: Jean Shepard Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Once we were so happy you [F]were my very [C]own  
Then you bought that guitar and you [D7]ruined our happy [G7]home   
[C]You told me that you're gonna pick [F]you're gonna be a [C]star
Well I'm tired of playing second fiddle [G7]to an old [C]guitar

You [F]gaze at that guitar on your [C]knee
In a [D7]way that you never look at [G7]me   
[C]This love affair of yours has gone too [F]far  
And I'm tired of playing [C]second fiddle [G7]to an old [C]guitar

You said it wouldn't be long till [F]you'd be number [C]one  
That we'd have lots of money and [D7]we'd have lots of [G7]fun   
[C]Well all you've done is pick and grin [F]and sing off key so [C]far  
I'm tired of playing second fiddle [G7]to an old [C]guitar

You [F]gaze at that guitar on your [C]knee
In a [D7]way that you never look at [G7]me   
[C]This love affair of yours has gone too [F]far  
And I'm tired of playing [C]second fiddle [G7]to an old [C]guitar

I've talked and preached and fought with you [F]and tried most [C]everything
If you keep a picking an old guitar [G7]then I'm a gonna [C]sing


Once we were so happy you were my very own
Then you bought that guitar and you ruined our happy home
You told me that you're gonna pick you're gonna be a star
Well I'm tired of playing second fiddle to an old guitar

You gaze at that guitar on your knee
In a way that you never look at me
This love affair of yours has gone too far
And I'm tired of playing second fiddle to an old guitar

You said it wouldn't be long till you'd be number one
That we'd have lots of money and we'd have lots of fun
Well all you've done is pick and grin and sing off key so far
I'm tired of playing second fiddle to an old guitar

You gaze at that guitar on your knee
In a way that you never look at me
This love affair of yours has gone too far
And I'm tired of playing second fiddle to an old guitar

I've talked and preached and fought with you and tried most everything
If you keep a picking an old guitar then I'm a gonna sing
