Guitar Heaven    (1981)

Hey, little boy, just sittin' on your back porch
Pickin' on your guitar, wishing you were far away,
Well, I can tell you're a little bit of dreamer
See it in your eyes, I hear it in your songs you play.

And hey, little boy, just play it like you feel it
Make it so real it's almost too real to take
Just swing it like a player, make it like a prayer
It's one from the heart, give it all of the heart it can take.

And when you play what you want to play
You reach down to the soul
You keep growin' and you know someday
That sound is gonna turn into gold.

Boy, you're takin' me there, to Guitar Heaven
And without sayin' a word, you lay it all on the line.
You make me leave my cares in Guitar Heaven
Just go and play your song, I could stay all night.

You know you're takin' me there to Guitar Heaven
You make me feel ev'ry sound, you make it shine like a light.
I'm gonna lose my cares in Guitar Heaven
You go and play that song, I'm gonna stay a while.

Go and play that song, boy, I'm gonna stay a while.
The way you play that song makes me want to smile.
