"Playin' on My Guitar" as written by and David Gates....
By the sand and fire light
While watching the fallin' star
Came a lady from the night
Who started playin' on my guitar

She was like a melody
That no one had ever heard
When she sang her magic song
I had to listen to every word

But she made me see
Like I never had before
Don't you know she set me free
Like I never been before
Don't you know the girl could sing
And I thought of what the future would bring

By the stars and fire light
The music was sweet and clear
Though I had her to myself
I was afraid someone else would hear

Soon the other heard her playin'
Started to gather round
One by one they started stayin'
'Cause they couldn't believe the sound

And she made them see
Like they never had before
Don't you know she set them free
Like they'd never been before
Don't you know the girl could sing
And I thought of what the future would bring

I see her every now and then
In movies and on T.V.
Wonder as I sit there watchin'
If she ever thinks of me

By the sand and fire light
(oooooooooooooo)
Before she became a star
(ooooo just a melody)
She was just a melody
When she was playin' on my guitar
Playin' on my g...playin' on my g...playin' on my guitar
