ROY ACUFF lyrics - Steel Guitar Blues

ROY ACUFF
"Steel Guitar Blues"

My baby loved to hear this guitar blue
My baby loved to hear this guitar blue
But now she's gone I'm lonesome lonesome to

(Play that thing boy)

Evertime you make that lonesome sound
Evertime you make that lonesome sound
I wish to the lord I was six feet under the ground

(Make it cry boy)

Everythime you slide that guitar string
Everythime you slide that guitar string
It breaks my heart 'cause sure don't sound the same

(Go way up on the neck of it now boy
Thats the way make it cry)

Thought I heard that steel guitar a crying
Thought I heard that steel guitar a crying
My mind goes back to the day my girl was dying

(Play that boy
Play that old base too, red)
