Johnathan East - Six Strings and a Song Lyrics


I left home at 18 with an old flat top guitar
On my way to make myself a name
On the back streets of the city, I stood outside a bar
Pickin’ my songs out in the rain
I poured my heart out while the sweat rolled down my cheek
I tipped my hat as folks just walked along
Didn’t have a dime then, nor too much to eat
Livin’ on six strings and a song.

I played in all the beer joints, every roadhouse near and far
I cranked it out and left ‘em wanting more
But it wasn’t ‘til I walked up in an Alabama bar
‘Til I found the sound that I’d been lookin’ for
Just a couple of long haired boys, but son, they sure could play
We hit the road thinkin’ we could do no wrong
Burning up that blacktop, in a beat up Chevrolet
Nothing but six strings and a song.

(Chorus)
Well, I’m a little bit gypsy, a little bit ramblin’ man
This life I live, it keeps me movin’ on
So, if your lookin’ to hold me, you better do it while you can
‘Cause I’m just here for six strings and a song.

We knocked ‘em out in Houston, tore ‘em up in Baton Rouge
Papers said we sure put on a show
Woke up in Mississippi with matchin’ new tattoos
And just what it says, I still don’t know
Livin’ on this highway ain’t no ordinary life
Everywhere I’ve been, I call my home
Truck stop cookin’ and cheap motels and flashin’ neon lights
But, all I really need is six strings and a song.

(Repeat Chorus)

Honey, I’m just here for six strings and a song.
