  • I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
    And I'm waiting for someone to play me now and then
    My strings are kinda rusty and I'm a little dusty
    Oh but you'd be to if you've been where I've been
    I did some shows with Haggard back in 1967
    And I'm just dying for someone to play me back home

    I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
    Hey come on by and listen to my song

    I've seen at least a million of those tiny smoke bar rooms
    And I've help to heal some heartaches
    And I've helped to sell some beer
    And the last one that held me
    Just couldn't wait to sell me
    And for twenty eight dollars and left me hanging here
    But I dream about the spotlight
    And the roaring of the people
    And I wonder if I'm ever gonna hear 'em sing along

    I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
    Hey come on by and listen to my song

    I've got a lot of memories
    And a song or two left in me
    And some day someone'll pick me up
    And play me back home

    I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
    Hey come on by and listen to my song

    Won't ya come back by and listen to my song Writer/s: BILL ANDERSON, JAMEY JOHNSON, VICKY MC GEHEE
