Jimmy Buffett Blue Guitar Lyrics

Last updated:

Once I knew a man
Showed me the slight of hand
Blink of an eye, he danced across the strings

Played a song I'd never heard
Poignant and absurd
To this day it leaves me wondering

Don't let tomorrow find you wishin'
Boy you've got a mission
Shake it, rattle and roll

Ah, now, just use your intuition
You'll get less competition
From the clock up on the wall

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

Play me a serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

Yeah…

'Cause we'll all make believe
Someone to deceive
Time is just a folly we can't see

If you only know one song
Play it right or wrong
The truth is always somewhere in between

You and I, we can't change the weather
We're all in this together
So let the strong winds blow

Ah, now things will be much better
Don't become a prisoner
The reason you should know

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your Blue Guitar for me
Play me a serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

Don't let tomorrow find you wishin'
Boy you've got a mission
Shake it, rattle and roll

Ah, now, just use you intuition
You'll get less competition
From the clock up on the wall

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

Play me a serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your Blue Guitar for me
Play me a serenade
Red wine or lemonade
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your Blue Guitar for me
Play me a serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your Blue Guitar for me

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your Blue Guitar for me
