Cowboy Junkies - Blue Guitar Lyrics




I wish I had a blue guitar,
a blue guitar to play all night long
Singing songs of loss and love
Singing songs till morning comes

Ghosts in the basement
screams from the kitchen
I tell you folks I think I'm leaving
Seems I can already here the door slammin'
I tell you folks I think I'm leavin'

Goodbye to the highway
goodbye to the sky
I'm headed out goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye to the highway
goodbye to the sky
I'm headed out goodbye, goodbye

I wish I had a blue guitar,
a blue guitar to play all night long
Singing songs of loss and love
Singing songs till morning comes

    I have been messing about on one of my guitars to try to get a workable campfire version of this song together with no real luck until i tuned down to DADGAD and there it is.a fabulous haunting song beautifully performed.

  2. MIB 63

    One of CJ's most haunting songs.

    Album: Miles From Our Home

    I wish I had a blue guitar,
    A blue guitar to play all night long
    Singing songs of loss and love
    Singing songs till morning comes

    Ghosts in the basement
    Screams from the kitchen
    I tell you folks I think I'm leaving
    Seems I can already here the door slammin'
    I tell you folks I think I'm leavin'

    Goodbye to the highway
    Goodbye to the sky
    I'm headed out goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye to the highway
    Goodbye to the sky
    I'm headed out goodbye, goodbye

    I wish I had a blue guitar,
    A blue guitar to play all night long
    Singing songs of loss and love
    Singing songs till morning comes
