"1976 Guitar" as written by and Gregory J Macainsh....
In 68 I bought an axe at the local music shop
Took it home and tuned it up and I began to bop
Played that thing all night and day each fret from neck to nut
There weren't no riff I did not know no lick I could not cut

In 73 I joined a band and wrote some snappy tunes
Went out to play six nights a week to all you drunken hoons
From Leederville to Bondi the news it travelled far
That maybe we could play that 1976 guitar

Wah wah pedal old Vox amp Marshall and a Fender
Plug em in and tune em up it's the sound we all remember
In 74 we got tight in 75 we starred
Then we knew we had to play that 1976 guitar

All the way to number one the music did not stop
We were high and mighty but it's lonely at the top
Then one night I met a girl at the Sebel bar
And she taught me how to play that 1976 guitar

Wah wah pedal old Vox amp Marshall and a Fender
Plug em in and tune em up it's the sound we all remember
We were coming close close but no cigar
Then I found the key to play that 1976 guitar

Ooh it¹s been a long time
Since I've opened up that case
Plugged it in and gave the next door neighbours just a taste

I know we weaved some magic up upon that stage
And somewhere in the spotlight I think we came of age
But I learnt one simple lesson - No matter who you are
Maybe you can play that 1976 guitar

Wah wah pedal old Vox amp Marshall and a Fender
Plug em in and tune em up it's the sound we all remember
In 74 we got tight in 75 we starred
Then we learned to play that 1976 guitar
If you walk the walk no matter who you are
You can learn to play that 1976 guitar
Could be a Gibson Les Paul or Fender Jaguar
Just as long as she's a 1976 guitar
Just as long as she's a 1976 guitar
