      About "Let The Guitar Do The Talkin'"

      Lyrics for Anita Cochran - "Let The Guitar Do The Talkin'"

      I was in a band, we were scheduled to appear
      At a little roadhouse called the Get Down Here
      A cinder block building with a hand-painted sign
      Hunkered down straddling the county lines

      When the crowd rolled in they were a motley mix
      There were truckers and bikers and locals from the sticks
      Each one meaner than a cougar in a cage
      And the biggest one swaggered right up to the stage

      He said, â??Weâ??ve heard everybody from David Allen Coe
      To Chuck Berry singing â??go Johnny go go
      Got an autographed picture of Elvis on the shelf
      So tell me girl what you got to say for yourself

      I let the guitar do the talkinâ??, and the whole place started rockinâ??
      My fingertips werenâ??t stoppinâ?? and that big dude started boppinâ??
      No need to fuss, stop the squalkinâ??, just let the guitar do the talkinâ??
      Now he was over in the corner with a chesire smile
      The best lookinâ?? seventeen miles
      Sittinâ?? there makinâ?? my poor heart sweet
      I knew my chances were a long shot bet
      Because a boy like that heâ??s heard every line
      And Iâ??ve never been the silver-tongue kind
      But I figured I had me one chance
      Of gettinâ?? that boy to dance
      So I cranked up my amp...
      I let the guitar do the talkinâ??, and the whole place started rockinâ??
      My fingertips werenâ??t stoppinâ?? and that big dude started boppinâ??
      No need to fuss, stop the squalkinâ??, just let the guitar do the talkinâ??
      In a world of too many words
      Sometimes your point is hard to get heard
      I think I figured out a little way of getting mine through
      I just put it on, tune it up and the whole place started rockinâ??
      My fingertips werenâ??t stoppinâ?? and that big dude started boppinâ??
      No need to fuss, stop the squalkinâ??, just let the guitar do the talkinâ??
