David Allan Coe Lyrics
Artist: David Allan Coe Song: Piece Of Wood And Steel Album: Once Upon A Rhyme Composer: Richard Dobson Verse 1 Am C I can feel your arms around me like it was yesterday G Am I can feel your breathin' next to me, and hear your laughter gay You tried to tell me what was right and I told you what was real G Am All I ever live for now is this piece of wood and steel Verse 2 - Half step higher Am C In a world that's full of trouble, a world that's full of pain,lord G Am Many fall beside the road, and they never rise again. Many more are bended low or broken at their will G Am All I need to carry on is this piece of wood and steel Verse 3 - Half step higher Bm D I was born my mother's only son she loves me all she can, A Bm but there isnt much to say to her since I became a man I often met the devil, but I never made a deal A Bm I just thank the lord for hands to play this piece of wood and steel Verse 4 - Half step higher Cm D It's face is scarred and beaten,like the ragged clothes I wear A Cm Like the body that god gave me, I might give it better care But I play it for the ladies and I play it for a meal A Cm I play the strings just to hear 'em ring on this piece of wood and steel. Verse 5 - Half step higher Cm E I'm growin' tired of searchin' now there's nothing more I crave B Cm Give or take a little time and you can write it on my grave There's nothin' more that I care to own, nothin' left to feel B Cm All I ever wanted was this piece of wood and steel Half step higher (Dm F C Dm C Dm) Play that guitar Dm Repeat Verses 1, 2 and 3 all in Dm (Spoken) I'll be playin' this guitar till the day I die.
