Lyrics Quiz: Guitars


  1. He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack and sit beneath the tree by the railroad track.
  2. The kids was just crass, he was the Nazz, with God-given ass. He took it all too far but, boy, could he play guitar.
  3. All I got is a red guitar, three chords and the truth.
  4. Now that ain't workin'. That's the way you do it. You play the guitar on the MTV.
  5. Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk. And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk from your front porch to my front seat.
  6. Everybody told me you can't get far on thirty-seven dollars and a Jap guitar.
  7. Well, late at night when the people were gone, he used to pick up my guitar, and sing a song in a shaky voice that was real as the day was long.
  8. With the rerun shows and the cocaine nose-job, the daytime crap of the folksinger slob. He hung himself with a guitar string.
  9. Take the guitar player for a ride. He ain't never been satisfied. He thinks he owes some kind of debt. Be years before he gets over it.
  10. So, I jumped on a bus to Dun Laoghaire, stopping off to pick up my guitar. When a drunk on a bus told me how to get rich, I was glad we weren't going too far.

Bonus: What guitar are you? (I'm a Fender Telecaster.)
