this damn guitar
music & lyrics by jay brannan

i said all that i had to say
and i believe in what i’ve done
i sang all that i had to sing
now all the work is done

rode into town upon a lonely star
floated away into a maple tree
love is the aim no matter where you are
but that’s not all there is to see

there is a piece of me in bethlehem
there is a piece of me in rome
there is an angel in the bedroom
who patiently waits to bring me home

when i’ve said all that i had to say
and i’ve saddled up that lonely star
i’ve played all that i had to play
and i’m gonna burn this damn guitar
