Up Guitar lyrics

Well I found her in a pawnshop
somewhere up in Ohio
where I guess some rounder came up short
and he had to let her go
cost me ninety dollars
but she's worth much more by far
cause I never had a better friend
than that old beat up guitar

She didn't look like too much
just a Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe
but a lady has never faired as well
who'd traveled through so much
She picked up the name of Angel
in an old New Orleans bar
where a drunken poet drew one
on the top of that guitar
old Dave Stovally marked her
scratched the song right out of his heart
seems everyone who used her
scarred that old beat up guitar

She didn't look like too much
just a Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe
but a lady has never faired as well
who'd traveled through so much
