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.
