Once we were so happy, you were my very own
But then you bought that guitar and you ruined our happy home
You told me that you're gonna pick, you're gonna be a star
I'm tired of playin' second fiddle to an old guitar

You gaze at that guitar on your knee
In a way that you ain't never looked at me
This love affair of yours has gone too far
And I'm tired of playin' second fiddle to an old guitar

You said it wouldn't be long till you'd be number one
That we'd have lots of money and we'd have lots of fun
Well, all you've done is pick and grin and sing all piece so far
I'm tired of playin' second fiddle to an old guitar

You gaze at that guitar on your knee
In a way that you ain't never looked at me
This love affair of yours has gone too far
And I'm tired of playin' second fiddle to an old guitar

I've talked and preached and fought with you
And tried most everything
If you keep pickin' that old guitar
Then I'm a gonna sing
