C G Am Em F G C - G/B - Am - Am7/G F G6 C G Am Em This old guitar taught me to sing a love song, F G C - G/B - Am - Am7/G Showed me how to laugh and how to cry. F G C G/B Am Am7/G It introduced me to some friends of mine and brightened up some days, F G C G/B Am Am7/G Helped me make it through some lonely nights, oh, F G C - G/B - Am - Am7/G F G6 C 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,
All the things you know I love to do -
To serenade the stars that shine from a sunny mountainside,
And most of all, to sing my songs for you.
I love to sing my songs for you, yes I do, you know.
I love to sing my songs for you.
(Words and music by John Denver, 1974)
