John Hiatt

Dit dateert al van 1993, maar nog steeds brandend actueel 😉 .

John Hiatt, de held.

De tekst: 

Well he threw one down from the top of the stairs
Beautiful women were standing everywhere
They all got wet when he smashed that thing
But off in the dark you could hear somebody sing

Chorus:
Oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
Smashing a perfectly good guitar
I dont know who they think they are
Smashing a perfectly good guitar

It started back in 1963
His momma wouldnt buy him
That new red harmony
He settled for a sunburt with a crack
But he’s still trying to break his mommas back

Chorus

He loved that guitar just like a girlfriend
But every good thing comes to an end
Now he just sits in his room all day
Whistling every note he used to play

There ought to be a law with no bail
Smash a guitar and you go to jail
With no chance for early parole
You dont get out t’ill you get some soul

Chorus

Late at night the end of the road
He wished he still had the old guitar to hold
He’d rock it like a baby in his arms
Never let it come to any harm

Chorus
