Me And My Rhtythm Guitar

Johnny Powers

(John Pavlik, SUN, recorded 1959)

Well, it's me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Well, I was a happy-go-lucky country boy
Bought me brand new guitar
And I was strummin' oh-of joy
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar

Well, we signed up about a quarter to nine
All the cats they're rock 'n' rollin
And having a real big time
They'd whistle and scream like a run-away car
And a voice ring out man, play that guitar
Well, it's me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Well, I had a mansion, man
I was really happy sad boy
These times they got me runnin' the steps
So ah, I cut me record of a Kansas tune
And I was nervous as a hounddog
Chasing the man in the moon

Well, it's me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Well, I was a happy-go-lucky country boy
Bought me brand new guitar
And I was strummin' oh-of joy
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar

Well, as fate would have it
And my record became a flop
And my bit of fame of fortune all of a sudden stops
So I went home a wise and happy boy
Just me and my guitar, like a kid with his toy
Well, it's me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Well, I was a happy-go-lucky country boy
Bought me brand new guitar
And I was strummin' oh-of joy
Just me and my rhythm guitar
Just me and my rhythm guitar
