Bought me a used Sears Guitar
Complete with amplifier
Gonna go up to Nashville
And set that town on fire

Gonna write me a song
‘Bout how luck has gone wrong
And how my wife will leave me
The subject of this song

Asked the good Lord up above
For the words I need to write
An’ show me how to play this guitar
And to do it all tonight

Wife said if I didn’t get a job
She’d leave me by first light
She’s already planin' to take my truck
Lord, help me through the night


So here I sit with my dog
Smokin' ah slightly used cigar
I’m tryin’ to write this crazy song
An’ strumin’ this Sears guitar

Now the night is almost thru
An’ I can’t seem to play a thing
Lord, I’m feelin’ mighty blue
Cause this guitar just won’t sing

Oh Lord, please help me
My mind is in a fog
I’m really gettin’ worried now
Hopen’ my wife won’t take my dog

Oh Lord, tell me what to do
Help me do what’s right
Need money to get to Nashville
Lord, help me through the night

I can’t seem to write a chord
Guess I’m just simply otta luck
And I hear what your sayin‘, Lord
Forget Nashville an’ drive a truck

Still I sit here playin' this fools game
Not thinking’ ‘bout what is right
Don't really want to drive a truck
Lord, help me thru the night!

Oh Lord; please help me thru the night
