Guy Clark – Stuff That Works lyrics

I got an olblue shirt
And it suits me just fine
I like the way it feels
So I wear it all the time
I got an old guitar
It won抰 ever stay in tune
I like the way it sounds
In a dark and empty room

I got an olpair of boots
And they fit just right
I can work all day
And I can dance all night
I got an olused car
And it runs just like a top
I get the feelinit ain抰
Ever gonna stop


Stuff that works, stuff that holds up
The kind of stuff you don抰 hang on the wall
Stuff that抯 real, stuff you feel
The kind of stuff you reach for when you fall

I got a pretty good friend
Who抯 seen me at my worst
He can抰 tell if I抦 a blessing
Or a curse
But he always shows up
When the chips are down
That抯 the kind of stuff
I like to be around


I got a woman I love
She抯 crazy and paints like God
She抯 got a playground sense of justice
She won抰 take odds
I got a tattoo with her name
Right through my soul
I think everything she touches
Turns to gold
