From 1994, this is probably John's best performance of this song that tells the story of the 1910 Gibson guitar that his grandmother gave when he was a 12 year old boy and how it shaped his life.

LYRICS:
This old guitar taught me to sing a love song
It showed me how to laugh and how to cry
It introduced me to some friends of mine
And brightened up my days
It helped me make it through some lonely nights
Oh, what a friend to have on a cold and lonely night

This old guitar gave me my lovely lady
It opened up her eyes and ears to me
It brought us close together
I guess it broke her heart
It opened up the space for us to be
What a lovely place and a lovely space to be

This old guitar gave me my life, my living
All the things you know I love to do
To serenade the stars that shine
From a sunny mountainside
Most of all to sing my songs to you
I love to sing these songs for you
Yes, I do, you know
I love to sing my songs for you

Words and music by John Denver
