The Harmony Guitar
Verse
Sunday mornings after church, we would gather in the kitchen
Mom would serve coffee n toast, dad would tune his ole guitar
As we sit down at the table, he'd wait for us to settle down
He'd turn to mom n say, honey, help me sing this song
Chorus
They'd sing amazing grace, and waltz across Texas
Jimmy Rodgers waiting for a train, and the rock of ages
We all learned of life n love, and the heaven up above-----------
I wish I could hear again, that ole Harmony guitar
Verse
He bought it at the dime store, twenty dollars he had paid
It was worth a hundred thousand, for all the music it could make
Twelve kids were the audience, the kitchen was the stage
Oh we loved to hear, that guitar play--
Chorus
They'd sing amazing grace, and waltz across Texas
Jimmy Rodgers waiting for a train, and the rock, of ages
We all learned of life n love, and the heaven up above-----------
I wish I could hear again, that ole Harmony guitar
Verse
The family is all scattered, mom n dad have passed away
It seems so long ago, since I heard that guitar play
Someday we'll get together, and pass that box around
Once again, we'll hear that guitar sound
Chorus
We'll sing amazing grace, and waltz across Texas
Jimmy Rodgers waiting for a train, and the rock, of ages
We all learned of life n love, and the heaven up above-----------
I wish I could hear again, that ole Harmony guitar

T---- for Texas --T for Tennessee ---------eeeee
