VERSE 1:
                 D7
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,
              G7sus4      G7      
I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis,
Got a room at the YMCA,
         D7
For the next three weeks I went huntin' them nights,
Just lookin' for a place to play,
          A7
Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire,
      G7                            D7   G7  
But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man.


VERSE 2:
                        D7
Well, I nearly 'bout starved to death down in Memphis,
I run outta money and luck,
So I bummed me a ride down to Macon, Georgia,
On a overloaded poultry truck,
            G7sus4    G7 
I thumbed on down to Panama City,
Started pickin' out some of them all night bars,
D7
Hopin' I could make myself a dollar,
Makin' music on my guitar,
         A7   
Got the same old story at them all night piers,
       G7                                     D7     
There ain't no room around here for a guitar man

SPOKEN: We don't need a guitar man, son 
G7
So I slept in the hobo jungles,
Roamed a thousand miles of track,
        D7   
Til I found myself in Mobile Alabama,
In a club they call Big Jack's,
         G7 
A little four-piece band was jammin',
So I took my guitar and I sat in,
   E7 
I showed 'em what a band would sound like,
         A7
With a swingin' little guitar man.

SPOKEN: Show 'em, son
                    D7
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,
     G7sus4       G7       
Just follow that crowd of people,You'll wind up out on his dance floor,
D7
Diggin' the finest little five-piece group,Up and down the Gulf of Mexico,
A7                                                G7 
Guess who's leadin' that five-piece band, Well, wouldn't ya know, 
                                  D7  G7 D7
it's that swingin' little guitar man.
