Six Strings Away
by Waylon Jennings



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
[ Guitar ]
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
