  • Well, I'm a funky low-down easy guitar slinger
    Big drinker and honky-tonk and western swinger
    When it comes to love then I ain't no beginner
    I will drive girls crazy with just one finger

    Well my daddy said "Son you're just wastin' time
    You're never ever gonna make one thin dime"
    It wasn't hard for me to see all I was ever gonna be
    Was a guitar slinger

    Well, I was living the life of a guitar slinger
    Womens and wine and whiskey for dinner
    Oh, I knew I was in trouble the first time I seen her
    I went and married that contemporary Christian singer.
    Yes I did

    Well now I run for home when it's closing time
    I read my Holy Bible and I walk the mile
    I can't wait to see what my baby's gonna do to me
    A little guitar slinger

    Well, there's a few licks left in this guitar slinger
    Even though half of my stuff's in the Cumberland River
    Well, now all I really need is just one six stringer
    Yeah, I might have slowed down a little but buddy, I can still bring her.

    Hell I'ma gonna show her when it's party time
    See everybody dancin' and we'll feel so fine
    If y'all just show up and shift for me I swear I'll play for free
    I'll be your guitar slinger
    Yeah I'll be your little guitar slinger baby Writer/s: Vincent Grant Gill
