Jerry Reed - Guitar Man Lyrics

  • Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
  • Left my mama a goodbye note,
  • By sundown I'd left Kingston,
  • With my guitar under my coat,
  • I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis,
  • Got a room at the YMCA,
  • For the next three weeks I went hauntin' them nightclubs,
  • Just lookin' for a place to play,
  • Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire,
  • But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man.
  • Well, I nearly 'bout starved to death down in Memphis,
  • I run outta money and luck,
  • So I bought me a ride down to Macon, Georgia,
  • On a overloaded poultry truck,
  • I thumbed on down to Panama City,
  • Started checkin' out some o' them all night bars,
  • Hopin' I could make myself a dollar,
  • Makin' music on my guitar,
  • I got the same old story at them all night piers,
  • There ain't no room around here for a guitar man
  • We don't need a guitar man, son
  • So I slept in the hobo jungles,
  • Roamed a thousand miles of track,
  • Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama,
  • At a club they call Big Jack's,
  • A little four-piece band was jammin',
  • So I took my guitar and I sat in,
  • I showed 'em what a band would sound like,
  • With a swingin' little guitar man.
  • Show 'em, son
  • If you ever take a trip down to the ocean,
  • Find yourself down around Mobile,
  • Make it on out to a club called Jack's,
  • If you got a little time to kill,
  • Just follow that crowd of people,
  • You'll wind up out on his dance floor,
  • Diggin' the finest little five-piece group,
  • Up and down the Gulf of Mexico,
  • Guess who's leadin' that five-piece band,
  • Well, wouldn't ya know, it's that swingin' little guitar man.
