There's an old guitar that's lonely
Since the master's gone away
But he's singing to the angels
Way up in Heaven today

He left a blue song for the brakeman
And to the kiddies a lullaby
To all sweethearts he left a love song
When Jimmie Rogers said goodbye

He left a yodel for the cowboy
They sing it now with tear dimmed eye
And he left every prairie lonely
When Jimmie Rogers said goodbye

They miss him down in Alabama
Across the world you can hear them say
Mississippi lost their blue yodeler
When Jimmie Rogers said goodbye

Although the freight trains keep on running
He caught a fast one on the fly
But he left his guitar behind him
When Jimmie Rogers said goodbye
