Song Description

AN EERIE MELODY THAT DESCRIBES A GUITAR WITH A PERSONALITY

Story Behind the Song

THIS SONG IS ONE OF THOSE THAT WROTE ITSELF. I WAS GUITAR-SITTING FOR MY FRIEND DAVE. I WAS MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS, AND THIS SONG POPPED OUT.

Lyrics




(My Guitar) Leading Me On

LATELY I?VE FLAUNTED, MY GUITAR IS HAUNTED,
AND I?VE BEEN UNDAUNTED ?TILL NOW

TO PLAY IT, IT PLEADS ME, I GO WHERE IT LEADS ME,
I FEEL LIKE IT NEEDS ME SOMEHOW

IT CALLS AND I FIND IT, I SIT THERE BEHIND IT,
I?M SIMPLY BLINDED AND PROUD
THE STRINGS STEER MY FINGERS AND I HEAR THE SINGERS
AS THE MELODY LINGERS ALOUD

(CHORUS)
I CRY WHEN IT?S SOUNDING GOOD
JUST 6 STRINGS OF STEEL AND SOME SHINY OLD WOOD
I PLAY?I PLAY?OUR SONG
WITH MY GUITAR LEADING ME ON.


I CANNOT HIDE IT. I DIDN?T WRITE IT
IT CAME FROM INSIDE IT MY FRIEND
IT HURTS AND IT?S HEALING, IT FLIRTS WITH THE FEELING
THAT I?VE BEEN CAUGHT STEALING AGAIN.

SOMEBODY BLESSED IT. A SOUL THAT?S UNRESTED
A SONWRITER?S FINAL BOW
THAT?S WHY I FLAUNT IT, MY GUITAR IS HAUNTED
I?VE BEEN UNDAUNTED ?TILL NOW
