So Ya Got a Great Guitar

so ya got a great guitar
and you’re tryin’ to learn to play
every chord you make a buzz
but your friend is so amazed
says he knows a shitty bar
where you’ll blow the house away
be a crazy fucking star
so you practice everyday

you will be the center of the stage, the focus of the crowd
and you’ll hear’em screaming out
(you’re the greatest thing in my life)
you’ll solo to the sky, open channels to the gods
once you’ve done your time

so you’re shreddin’ Zeppelin
think you’re better than Page
and your mom’s been nagging
to get your own place
one night a cutie waitress
fuckin’ knows your name
it makes you wonder how you’ll handle all the fame

you will be the center of the stage, the focus of the crowd
and you’ll hear’em screaming out
(you’re the greatest thing in my life)
you’ll solo to the sky, open channels to the gods
once you’ve done your time

your friends no longer show
your wife says let it go
you’re undiscovered
clubs want covers
no band for the road

have I been wasting my life
have I been wasting my life
have I been wasting my life
have I been wasting my life

you play your songs for three old men
at a pub that’s not too far
they raise their beers and one comes up
he says you got yourself a great guitar
it’s the greatest thing in my life
(it’s the greatest thing in my life)

so ya got a great guitar
a fuckin’ great guitar
so ya got a great guitar
you got a great guitar
so ya got a great guitar
