jim steinman – love and death and american guitar lyrics

Loading...

i remember everything
i remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday
i was barely 17 and i once killed a boy with a fender guitar
i don’t remember if it was a telecaster or a stratocaster
but i do remember that it had a heart of chrome
and a voice like a h-rny angel
i don’t remember if it was a telecaster or a stratocaster
but i do remember
that it wasn’t at all easy
it required the perfect combination of the right powerchords
and the precise angle from which to strike
the guitar bled for about a week afterwards and the blood was
ooh…
dark and rich like wild berries
the blood of the guitar was chuck berry red
the guitar bled for about a week afterwards and it rung out beautifully,
and i was able to play notes that i had never even heard before.
so i took my guitar and i smashed it against the wall
i smashed it against the floor
i smashed it against the body of a varsity cheerleader
i smashed it against the hood of a car
i smashed it against a 1981-harley davidson
the harley howled in pain, the guitar howled in heat!
i ran up the stairs to my parents bedroom
mommy and daddy were sleeping in the moonlight
slowly i opened the door creeping in the shadows right up to the foot of the bed
i raised my guitar high above my head
and just as i was about to bring the guitar crashing down upon the center of the bed
my father woke up screaming:
“stop… wait a minute.stop it, boy
what do you think you’re doing?
that’s no way to treat an expensive musical instrument”
and i said “god d-mn it, daddy, you know i love you
but you got a h-ll of a lot to learn about rock and roll”
