Girl With Guitar
By Gary Krainak

Standing as still as a statue
In front of the microphone
You swear that she’s staring right at you
And singing to you all alone
Just like that old Mona Lisa
Her smile does some secret conceal
But she isn’t in no museum
That Girl With Guitar is for real

Strumming that six string that lays crossed her breast
The Girl With Guitar swings the fringe on her vest
Tugging your heartstrings with every bar
No picture so pretty as a Girl With Guitar

A beauty no artist could render
As she steps into the spotlight
And cranks up the amp on her Fender
And plays it with all of her might
Strumming so free and so gaily
While wearing that big cowboy hat
No banjo or ukulele
Could ever look so cool as that

Some men have themselves believing
That she can be had for a price
Oh what a web they are weaving
Inside of their fool’s paradise
They try to buy her affection
But none have succeeded so far
To add to their private collection
That beautiful Girl With Guitar
