written by Kent "Lobo" LaVoie
I delivered papers in the
Early morning rain - Oh what a pain
Getting up and going to school after that
But I saved my pennies and
I saved my dimes
Bought a Fender Stratocaster
On time
Had the best guitar around
And that's a fact

It had three pick-ups
And a tremolo bar
A hard-shell case designed for a star
I couldn't play much
It didn't matter to me
I thought I was Duane Eddy

Music wasn't much back then
I can still remember when
The boys asked me to join their band
People liked my guitar
So I stood in the light
And it seemed that after every night
It was me who always got
The biggest hand
