A true story about my first guitar and how it changed my life

lyrics

When I was 11 years old
We left our home in Chicago
Traveling to the north, so far
I didn’t what was in store
Only knew I wanted more
And that was when I got my first guitar

4 kids, my mom and dad
Pots and pans, and football pads
A davenport, twin beds and a dinette set
A hot dog wagon from the Price is Right
My dad won it on the show one night
That was how we showed up in Marquette

I hated leaving that one block street
30 kids, including me
4 years of playing in that empty lot
Said goodbye to my best friend
Don’t think I ever saw him again
But this was not my choice, like it or not

When I was 11 years old
We left our home in Chicago
Traveling to the north, so far
I didn’t what was in store
Only knew I wanted more
And that was when I got my first guitar

And that guitar saved my life
A new chapter was in my sights
Took it from my brother when he walked in that door
Didn’t matter what new friends I made
Just wanted that guitar to play
Hell, we had already moved 4 times before

When I was 11 years old
We left our home in Chicago
Traveling to the north, so far
I didn’t what was in store
Only knew I wanted more
And that was when I got my first guitar
