On This Cheap Guitar

I'm getting home from a job that pays the bills
It ain't much but we're doing fine
You are doing dishes in the kitchen sink
God, you're beautiful when you smile
I pick up the six-string just to let you know
I'm happy just to be with you
There's laundry on the bed as I'm hooking up the microphone
The kids are sleeping in the other room

I write you a love song on this cheap guitar
I lay the tracks down one by one
I know it ain't the lifestyle of a shooting star
But we're still young, we're still in love, and we're having fun

I'll take you out every chance I get
I'll take you in when we can't find a babysitter
I'll take you with me everywhere I go
To any place, in any kind of weather
I'll take the good times and I'll take the bad
I'll take your hand for worse or better
I'm not much, but I love you and I hope you know
I've got no regrets, I'm still in love, and I'm having fun

The boys are wild and the neighbors crazy
The cars don't run all of the time
I know I haven't fixed the leak in the bathroom ceiling
At least I'm yours and I know your mine
