The Harmony Guitar

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

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

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
