CHEAP GUITARS

First appeared on the Cheap Guitars EP in 2011.

Had to park on Bay State Road

'Cause Fenway's all aglow

Up Brookine Ave. to Lansdowne Street

Guitar in hand in the summer heat

The faithful in their red and blue

A crowd outside the House of Blues

I'm dodging vendors, hawkers, and rock band stalkers

on my way

Breaking strings on cheap guitars

Close my eyes, pretend we're stars

Across that alley seems so far

But tonight it could all be ours

The sound man brought his harp to play

The doorman lends a smile our way

One and two and three and four

Heads perk up we couldn't ask for more

 

Breaking strings on cheap guitars

Close my eyes, pretend we're stars

Across that alley seems so far

But tonight it could all be ours


Someday we'll climb that stage

Across that alley, beyond that velvet cage

Until then, here we'll remain

With our singing, ringing, stringing ways

 

 

Breaking strings on cheap guitars

Close my eyes, pretend we're stars

Across that alley seems so far

But tonight it could all be ours
