By the lovely John Denver. His consoling voice, his words, his peaceful presence were a lovely gift to this world. He explains and performs "This Old Guitar" here:

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 some days,
it helped me make it through some lonely nights.

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,
and 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,
and all the things you know I love to do.
To serenade the stars that shine
from a sunny mountain-side,
and most of all to sing my songs for you.
I love to sing my songs for you.
Yes I do, you know and I love to sing my songs for you.
