Tonight I hold the one I love far from the one at home
I picked her up some time ago and I never feel alone
I held on tight too many years to ever set her free
And though she's not a lady she still means the world to me.
Chorus:
She's no lady but I love her, she's been known to be untrue
She's been knocked around and picked on, even dropped a time or two
She's been passed around at parties, sat on everybody's knees
This old guitar's changed hands a time or two but it still belongs to me.
It still belongs to me.
--- Instrumental ---
She's the one who keeps me from my wife and family half the time
She haunts me and she drives me to these honky tonk dives
I pick her up each evening as the neon starts to glow
And hold her closer to my heart than any lady's ever known
Chorus:
She's no lady but I love her, she's been known to be untrue
She's been knocked around and picked on, even dropped a time or two
She's been passed around at parties, sat on everybody's knees
This old guitar's changed hands a time or two but it still belongs to me.
It still belongs to me.
Chorus:
She's no lady but I love her, she's been known to be untrue
She's been knocked around and picked on, even dropped a time or two
She's been passed around at parties, sat on everybody's knees
This old guitar's changed hands a time or two but it still belongs to me.
It still belongs to me...
