[INTRO] C G C G D
[VERSE]
    C             G               C              G
I found it in a pawn shop in a ragged cardboard case
          Em                       D
With the guns and dusty watches it looked so out of place
          C                 G             Gmaj7      Em
With a Trailways baggage sticker yellow frayed and torn
C             G          D       G
Destination Nashville September '64

[CHORUS]
              Em           C                G                 D
And you could tell by the fingerboard her painted nails were long
     Em           C              D
She only needed three chords to play those good ole country songs
         G                     C             G      Gmaj7   Em
And her name's etched in the finish like a fading battle scar
         C      G         D           G
And this 1950 Gibson was Emma Jean's guitar

[VERSE]
    C              G            C                  G
I wonder if she played it in a small town talent show
         Em                                D
With her hair teased to perfection in a dress her mamma sewed
            C         G           Gmaj7        Em
And for a little inspiration she pasted on a star
C               G              D            G
Here up on the head stock of Emma Jean's guitar

[CHORUS]
     Gmaj7         Em           C                G                 D
And you could tell by the fingerboard her painted nails were long
     Em           C              D
She only needed three chords to play those good ole country songs
         G                     C             G      Gmaj7   Em
And her name's etched in the finish like a fading battle scar
         C      G         D           G
And this 1950 Gibson was Emma Jean's guitar

[VERSE]
C                G              C                G
I wouldn't even know her if I saw her face to face
                 Em                        D
But there's a little bit of Emma Jean in every song I play
    G                                            Gmaj7    Em
She passed along these hopes and dreams cradled in my arms
    C             G          D            G
And I am just a guardian of Emma Jean's guitar

[CHORUS]
     Gmaj7         Em           C                G                 D
And you could tell by the fingerboard her painted nails were long
     Em           C              D
She only needed three chords to play those good ole country songs
         G                     C             G      Gmaj7   Em
And her name's etched in the finish like a fading battle scar
         C      G         D           G
And this 1950 Gibson was Emma Jean's guitar
