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 him when he was a 12 year old boy and how it shaped his life. ENHANCED version of this performance at this LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCUOEr...
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
