Well, I quit my job Down at the car wash Left my mama a goodbye note By sundown, I left Kingston With my guitar under my coat Hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis Got a room at the YMCA For the next three weeks I went hunting every night Looking for a place to play Well, I thought my picking Would set 'em on fire But nobody wanted to hire A guitar man Well, I nearly 'bout starved To death down in Memphis I run out of money and luck Then I caught me a ride Down to Macon, Georgia On a overloaded poultry truck I thumbed on down to Panama City Started picking out Some of them all night bars Hoping I could make myself a dollar Making music on my guitar I got the same old story From all my peers There ain't no room around here For a guitar man We don't need a guitar man, son So I slept in a hobo jungles I roamed a thousand miles of track Till I found myself in Mobile, Alabama At a club they call Big Jack's A little four piece band was jamming So I took my guitar and I sat in I showed 'em what a band would sound like With a swinging little guitar man Show 'em, son If you ever take a trip down to the ocean Find yourself down around Mobile Make it on out to a club called Jack's If you got a little time to kill Just follow that crowd of people You'll wind up out on his dance floor Digging the finest little five piece group Up and down the Gulf of Mexico Guess who's leading that five piece band Well, wouldn't you know It's that swinging little guitar man Baby, what I say (baby, what I say) Baby, what I say now (baby, what I say) Baby, what I say (baby, what I say) Baby, what I say (baby, what I say) Baby, what I say Swinging little guitar man Baby, one more time (baby, one more time) Baby, one more time (baby, one more time) Baby, one more time (baby, one more time) Baby, one more time (baby, one more time) Hey, what I say, swinging little guitar man
