There's an old guitar that's lonely for its master's gone away
Now he's singing to the angels way up in heaven today
He left a blue song for the brakemen and to the kids a lullaby
To all sweethearts he left a love song when Jimmie Rodgers said goodbye
He left a yodel for the cowboy they'll sing it now with tear dimmed eyes
And he left every prairie lonely when Jimmie Rodgers said goodbye
[ fiddle - steel ]
They'll miss him down in Alabama across the world you can hear them sigh
Mississippi lost their blue yodeler when Jimmie Rodgers said goodbye
Although the freigh trains keep on running he caught a fast one on the fly
But he left his guitar behind him when Jimmie Rodgers said goodbye
