Emma Jean's Guitar Lyrics

Artist: Chely Wright
Album: Let Me In

I found it in a pawn shop in a ragged cardboard case
With the guns and dusty watches it looked so out of place
With a Trailways baggage sticker yellow frayed and torn
Destination Nashville Septemper '64

Chorus:
And you could tell by the fingerboard her painted nails were long
She only needed three cords to play those good ole country songs
And her name's etched in the finish like a fading battle scar
And this 1950 Gibson was Emma Jean's guitar

I wonder if she played it in a small town talent show
With her hair teased to perfection in a dress her mama sewed
And for a little inspiration she pasted on a star
Here up on the head stock of Emma Jean's guitar

Chorus 2:
And you could tell by the fingerboard her painted nails were long
She only needed three cords to play those good ole country songs
And they were played with tenderness they were played with heart
And this 1950 Gibson was Emma Jean's guitar

doooooo doooo

I wouldn't even know her if I saw her face to face
But there's a little bit of Emma Jean in every song I play
She passed along these hopes and dreams cradled in my arms
And I am just a guardian of Emma Jean's guitar

Repeat Chorus 1:

This 1950 Gibson was Emma Jean's guitar
doooo dooo doooo doo ooooooo.......
