Well my daddy said "Son you're just wastin' time
You're never ever gonna make one single dime"
It wasn't hard for me to see all I was ever gonna be
Was a guitar slinger
Well, I was living the life of a guitar slinger
Women and wine and whiskey for dinner
Oh, I knew I was in trouble the first time I seen her
I went and married that contemporary Christian singer.
Yes I did
Well now I run for home when it's closing time
I read my Holy Bible and I walk the mile
I can't wait to see what my baby's gonna do to me
A little guitar slinger
Well, there's a few licks left in this guitar slinger
Even though half of my stuff's in the Cumberland River
Well, now all I really need is just one six stringer
Yeah, I might have slowed down a little but buddy, I can still bring her.
Hell I'ma gonna show her when it's party time
See everybody dancin' and we'll feel so fine
If y'all just show up and shift for me I swear I'll play for free
I'll be your guitar slinger
Yeah I'll be your little guitar slinger baby
