Talking Guitar Blues - John Greenway

Obvious source of Bob Dylan's 'Talking Blues'

This song ist the work of Ernie Tubb, popular C&W singer.

Now, if you want to get in trouble, let me tell you
how to do it:
You get you a guitar, and then you're into it;
You play all day and you play all night
And your folks say you'll never learn to play
the thing right.
They're always fussin' at you. Gripin'.
Won't let you practice.
Tryin' to run you out to the henhouse.

Well, I bought a guitar about a year ago
And the man said I could learn it in a week or so,
And he gave me a little book and a pick or two
And he said: "There, John, it's up to you!"
