These Rusty Ol' Strings

Darrell H. Think Different contributor

CHORUS 1 

WELL THERE’S RUST ON THESE OLD STRINGS
BUT IT DON’T MEAN A RUSTY THING
CAUSE I’M GONNA MAKE ME HAPPY FROM NOW ON
AND I CAN’T SEEM TO SMILE
CAUSE IT’S BEEN TOO LONG A WHILE
BUT I’M GONNNA MAKE ME HAPPY AGAIN
VERSE 1 OH IT’S HARD TO SEE THE LIGHT WHEN THERE’S NO LIGHT IN SIGHT
AND I CAN’T SEE THE BIRDS FOR ALL THIS SNOW
THERE ARE NO FRIENDS AROUND SINCE I MOVED TO THIS SMALL TOWN
SO I’LL HAVE TO LET IT GO, BUT JUST FOR NOW

 

CHORUS 2

WELL THERE’S RUST ON THESE OLD STRINGS
BUT IT DON’T MEAN A RUSTY THING
CAUSE I’M GONNA MAKE ME HAPPY FROM NOW ON
AND I CAN’T SEEM TO SMILE
CAUSE IT’S BEEN TOO LONG A WHILE
BUT I’M GONNNA MAKE ME HAPPY AGAIN
VERSE2 OH I’M TRYING TO HEAR THE WORDS
AND THE SINGING OF THE BIRDS
OR A SOUND TO PUT A SMILE UPON MY FACE
IT’S THE SOUND FROM ABOVE
OF THE WOMAN THAT I LOVE
BRUSHING PAINTED VISIONS ON CANVAS OF GOD’S GRACE

CHORUS 3

WELL THERE’S RUST ON THESE OLD STRINGS
BUT IT DON’T MEAN A RUSTY THING
CAUSE I’M GONNA MAKE ME HAPPY FROM NOW ON
AND I CAN’T SEEM TO SMILE
CAUSE IT’S BEEN TOO LONG A WHILE
BUT I’M GONNNA MAKE ME HAPPY AGAIN
VERSE3 – THOSE DAYS UNDER THAT OLD PEAR TREE
SEEM SO DISTANT NOW TO ME
AND THE PAINS WEDGED BETWEEN THE DAYS ARE NO MORE
JUST OLD MEMORIES CLEAR TO SEE
FROM THE MAN I’VE YET TO MEET
AND THE WOMAN CLOSE TO ME
COMES A PEACE FROM THE BURDENS THAT I BORE
CHORUS 4 WELL THERE’S RUST ON THESE OLD STRINGS
BUT IT DON’T MEAN A RUSTY THING
CAUSE I’M GONNA MAKE ME HAPPY FROM NOW ON
AND I CAN’T SEEM TO SMILE
CAUSE IT’S BEEN TOO LONG A WHILE
BUT I’M GONNA MAKE ME HAPPY AGAIN
