Lyrics

When I Play My Guitar

When I play my guitar
I know I?m never alone
?cause there?s always a good old song that I can sing
When I play my guitar
I feel my soul flying free
With every note of a melody
The world is a better place
There?s a smile on everyone?s face
when I play my guitar

I think I was only 6 years old
When I got my guitar from Auntie Glo
And with a song in my heart and stars in my eyes
I took some lessons and oh how I tried
Then before too long I did a song at school
Me and my guitar could barely climb on the stool
Then somewhere in the middle of Bobbie McGee
I knew this is where I wanted to be

CHORUS

Between boys and books and jobs in the summer
That guitar was always there in the corner
And I?d look at it every now and then
And tell myself I?ll pick it up again
Then one day I woke up to my dream
And I grabbed that guitar and started to sing
Now I sing in my room and at the Blue Bird café
And I sing for the Lord now twice on Sunday

CHORUS
