lirik lagu 38 special – homeless guitar

Loading...

well, i know how it feels to be ripped from my roots
and tossed into a world unbending.
not long ago i was bitten by the truth
some folks spend their whole life pretending.
now i start each mornin’ with the sunlight by my side
find another highway, hitch another ride
and i use this six-string like an archer wields his bow
i believe when the arrow finds it’s mark
it pierces the soul.

(chorus)
three songs for a quarter each time i open my case
four chords and the voice of a good man fallen from grace
no pity for me mister, i’m proud to be a drifter
a long shot from bein’ a star
you know, the times ain’t been easy
for me and my homeless guitar.

now i know how it feels to be judged in a glance
stripped of your pride and your p-ssion.
i only know that the rivers of the soul
run deeper than birthright or fashion.
i see you look me over, feel the weight of your stare
i’m sendin’ you a message but you act like you don’t care.
i see a ripple, a crack in your facade
you know, it really don’t matter who you think you are
we’re the same under god.

(2nd chorus)

(bridge)
i thank the lord above for the gift he’s given me
i’m richer than most men
got a friend in my six-string
in a world where trust ain’t got no guarantee
if you ain’t got a penny
gonna sing you this song for free, yeah.

(refrain)
oh, i use these six-strings like an archer wields his bow
i believe when the arrow finds it’s mark
it pierces the soul.

(3rd chorus)
