Conway Twitty - Play Guitar Play Lyrics

Play, guitar play
Take me back to yesterday
Let me see, cotton growing, in the fields
Let me hear, my momma calling
Look a-yonder ya'll who's coming
Down the road, he's a coming home
But they know I never will.

I left them living with that awful thing I done
I didn't tell them I just packed my clothes and run.

Play, guitar play
Help me through another day
Help me make another dollar, before I go
We got time, for one more song
Then we'll have to move along
Another town, another crowd
Lord, I wonder if they know.

Can they read between the lines in my song
As I sing about a good boy that's went wrong
Guitar we got years to kill
We got to climb that distant hill
I wonder if they think of me.
(Guitar play)...

    Conway Twitty, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson were the best country singers ever to sing and play this kind of music. R.I.P Waylon and Conway and long may Willie live on.

  22. Mike AuBuchon

    Sometimes you get gifts from your parents and never realize it until your much older .
    The gift my parents gave me was a appreciation for great music .
    My dad with the legendary country singers of Hank Sr. Johnny Cash , George Jones , Stone wall Jackson , Merle Haggard etc.
    My mom with the legendary rock n roll artists of the 50's & 60's .
    Buddy Holly , Elvis , Jerry Lee Lewis , Fats Domino , Little Richard , the Big Bopper etc.
    And you combine those great eras of music and those legendary artists with my era of great 80's rock and I have no shortage of great music to listen to.
    Sometimes the greatest gifts are those that you didn't even realize that you got until later in life .

    Actually Country used to be really "Cool" before it was turned into "Urban Crap" the Mainstream after the 1970s thinks is labelled "Cool". When Male Country Singers sounded like Real Men not 12 years boys or girls.


    Bill Bass This shit industry calls country now , is a joke...

    Gloria Monroe

    So called country singers now just sing, The Late Great Conway sang from his 💗

    Betty Potts

    Bill Cleveland conway is the best
