          Em                     G
Well he threw one down form the top of the stairs
 Am                     C          D
beautiful women were staning everywhere
      Em                    G
they all got wet when he smahed that thing 
     Am                        D             G
but off in the dark you could hear somebody sing

        Am               Em
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
  G          C        D       G
smashing a perfectly good guitar
    Am                  Em
i don;t know who they think they are
  D           G        C     D
smashing a perfectly good guitar

Em          D         Em
Em          D         Em


it started back in 1963
his momma wounlt buy him
that new red harmony
he settled fgor a sunburt with a crack
but he's still trying to break his momma's back.

chorus

Solo  Guitar - Same Chords as intro.

he loved that guitar just like a girlfriend
but ever good thing comes to an end
now he just sits in his room all day
whistling every note he used to play

there out to be a law with no bail
smash a guitar and you go to jail
with no chance for early parole
you don;t get out till you get some soul

chorus

late at night the end of the road
he wished he still had the old guitar to hold
he'd rock it like a baby in his arms
never let it come ot any harm


chorus
