I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
And I'm waiting for someone to play me now and then
My strings are kinda rusty and I'm a little dusty
Oh, but you'd be too if you've been where I've been

I've done some shows with Haggard back in 1967
Now I'm dying for someone to play me back home

I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
Hey, come on by and listen to my song

I've seen at least a million of those tiny smoke bar rooms
And I've helped to heal some heartaches and I've helped to sell some beer
And the last one to help me
Just couldn't wait to sell me for 20 dollars and left me hanging here

But I dream about the spot light and the roaring of the people
And I wonder if I'm ever gonna hear 'em sing along

I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
Hey, come on by and listen to my song

I've got a lot of memories and a song or two left in me
And some day someone will pick me up and play me back home

I'm just a guitar in the pawn shop on the corner
Hey, come on by and listen to my song
Won't ya come back by and listen to my song?
