Waylon Jennings - Six Strings Away Lyrics

 

In days gone by but not forgotten

I plowed in the fields and I pulled in the cotton

Things you'd never think I've done when you see me now

I pick and sing and they think I'm a star

But every time I look down at my old guitar

I know I'm just six strings away from that same ol' plow.

 

I drive a new Royce Rolls

Buy them tailor made clothes

How long will good times stay

A poor boy ways

And hard time days

Just six strings away.

 

I met a girl 'bout a year ago

In a little country town where I played a show

And though I love her I still wonder just what she'd do

If I laid that old guitar down

How long would she hang around?

Or is she just six strings away from someone new.

 

Well, them six little strings

Buy rings and good things

But how long would she stay

If she knew poor boy ways

And and hard time days

Just six strings away...
