Hi I don't scribble as much as I used to, but here's an oldie revisited

Guitar For Sale.

I saved hard for this guitar
It cost a months pay
Thought I'll impress my gal
And learn how to play,
But she flipped her lid
As I was practicing
Said that thingís gotta go
And I should try fishing.

chorus
Guitar for sale
Almost new
Comes with a case
And a tuner too.
My sweet serenade
Was doomed to fail
Grab a bargain
Guitar for sale.

I saw myself by the fire
Guitar on my knee
Singing her a love song
As she adored me,
Then she let her hair down
And tore off my jeans
But before I knew a chord
She crushed my dreams.

chorus
Guitar for sale
Almost new
Comes with a case
And a tuner too.
My sweet serenade
Was doomed to fail
Grab a bargain
Guitar for sale.

bridge
If Iíd bought a new t v
Sheíd have been all over me
Like on my birthday last year,
But she cast her crimson mist
And now Iím on Craigslist
Buying fishing gear.

So it's

Guitar for sale
Almost new
Comes with a case
And a tuner too.
My sweet serenade
Was doomed to fail
Grab a bargain
Guitar for sale.
yes
My sweet serenade
Was doomed to fail,
Grab a bargain
Guitar for sale.

Reminds me of the ad:

Motorcycle for sale.
Ridden once, home from the dealership.
Apparently,
"Do whatever the hell you want!"
doesn't mean what you'd think it does!


There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

Thanks Tony, wow I never heard it as a blues tune, but man you nailed it, with a blues theme I wonder if a,slimmed down version might work stronger so I scribbled this, if you fancy finishing the song go ahead which ever way you chose
thanks again, all the best,john.
Guitar For Sale.

I saved hard for this guitar
It cost a whole months pay
Yes I saved hard for this guitar
It cost a whole months pay,
But my baby she goes crazy
Every time I play.

chorus
My guitarís for sale
Itís almost new
Comes with a case
And a tuner too,
My plans to impress her
Were doomed to fail
Grab a bargain
Guitar for sale

I tuned up and got strumming
I was on a mission
Yes I tuned up and got strumming
I was a man on a mission
But to my dismay I heard her say
Go take up fishing.

chorus
bridge
Iíll cry when I say goodbye
It's a limited edition hand made
But a womans scorn is the sharpest thorn
Cuts deeper than any blade.

But a lover's scorn is the sharpest thorn
....Cuts deeper than any blade
And I'll remember that while I'm fishing! smile

Yea', I'm feeling' this! Letís knock it around some more... get some more input/ideas... Perhaps a female verse about bills to pay, and get this noise out of my house! Lol smile

great switch Tony
a female verse sounds cool. but the bills thing is kinda well trod territory
maybe

My advice is take the first offer
And donít haggle for more
Yes my advice is take the first offer
Donít haggle for any more,
Thereís an exercise bike I really like
Only costs three nine four.

all the best,john

I think I just had an epiphany.... Story line

- I saved hard for this guitar
- My wife hates my guitar
- My guitar's for sale
- I couldnít sell my guitar
- My new girlfriend loves fishing...

Instead of "I think you should try fishing"... the wife says "I think you should keep fishing". Make it a running theme smile

Fun idea and lyric, not sure I agree with the sentiment.

Once had a girl say it's either me or the guitar, and I said what's your name again?

Na Tony, a new girl friend doesn't work for me, the gist is a love relationship,and like in most, the woman picks the curtains
