"I cannot play ‘Guitar’ but I sure can write the words" (Song)



"I cannot play ‘Guitar’ but I sure can write the words"



I try to play guitar but it’s always out of tune
When you hear me play you will think I am a goon
I cannot play the chords or read music that’s quite clear
“Cause when I play guitar I can only play by ear

Chorus

We’re not always gifted in the things that we like best
Even though we try to play just give it a rest
It’s not what we’re supposed to do it’s proven to be true
You’re talented at something else this is not for you

As I thought, that I was talented I played a little more
However, after a while, my ear was feelin’ sore
It started to hurt when I reached the higher notes
I thought that I should give it up and say “Adios”

Chorus

We’re not always gifted in the things that we like best
Even though we try to play just give it a rest
It’s not what we’re supposed to do it’s proven to be true
You’re talented at something else this is not for you

I thought that I should try, something else for awhile
I just don’t have the talent, as this is not my style
You’ll think that this is ludicrous and find it quite absurd
I’ll stick to being a lyricist and just write down the words

Chorus

We’re not always gifted in the things that we like best
Even though we try to play just give it a rest
It’s not what we’re supposed to do it’s proven to be true
You’re talented at something else this is not for you
Yes, you're talented at something else this is not for you
