About "Rhythm Guitar"
Lyrics for Emmylou Harris - "Rhythm Guitar"
She played around town 'til she opened the show
For a high-rollin' singer up from Tupelo
He saw her in the lights and he give her a hand
Next thing Sally knew she was one of the band
She said "don't give me nothin' that I can't use
I got the rhythm and I do don't need the blues
I don't want to ride no shootin' star
Just want to play on the rhythm guitar"
She was the sweetest thing that he ever had seen
And he'd had quite a few of them backstage queens
She was the prettiest thing that he ever had heard
Playin' rhythm guitar and singin' the third
Well Sally keeps her feet planted on the ground
She don't lose her head when the sun goes down
Everybody's out lookin' for romance
But Sally just wants to get the people to dance
