    This must have been done here before, maybe multiple times, but I can’t recall a recent one.

    so I’ll start by throwing out this one

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    apparently this



    machine translation of the chorus:

    Telecaster. Striped
    I don't need that kind of music
    To, Telecaster. Striped
    I want to be a flying fly
    A, Dārinsutei awei
    Telecaster. Striped
    I don't need that kind of music

    ok then

    "The Telecaster, chicken pickin' was sending me sailing."

    And yes, he's playing Waylon Jennings' actual telecaster because the Jennings family was involved with this.

    What more could you want - Stealers Wheel


    Here we go, time to start, if you're ready,
    Just get on out there, don't look so serious,
    Take that expression off your face, put a smile there in its place.

    Now you know we're on your side, so don't worry,
    You look the part with your faded Levi's shirt,
    You've got a brand new Telecaster, what more could you want?

    [Chorus]
    What am I doin' here? What does it all mean to you?
    If I could only disappear, I wonder what you all would do?

    Don't forget what we told you, it'll be all right
    As long as you remember, there's so much at stake,
    We can't afford to make mistakes, tonight of all nights.

    [Chorus]

    Here we go, time to start, if you're ready,
    Just get on out there, don't look so serious,
    Take that expression off your face, put a smile there in its place.

    Now you know we're on your side, so don't worry,
    As long as you remember, there's so much at stake,
    We can't afford to make mistakes, tonight of all nights.

    Tom Faulkner did one called Blues Across America

    Way down here, in the heart of Texas
    There's a own kinda blues going on
    Elmore James, Stevie Ray, Freddie King
    Robert J's licks are heard on every song

    They play 'em wild as a herd of horses
    Rumbling through the open plain
    If I throw you down a back road
    Dumped you in a honky tonk
    You'd never wanna go home again

    'Cause the broke down sound
    Of an old Telecaster's about the
    Sweetest sound I know

    Blues across America
    Gotta have it on the radio
    Blues across America
    I gotta have it everywhere I go

    Unfortunately, when I read the title of this thread, only this song popped I to my head.........fwiw, that whole album is quite solid.

    tele content



    machine trans:

    stage, ripped jeans
    In the garage with the knob and the mole
    Nightmare for neighbors, dreaming of parts
    An SG Gibson, a Fender, Telecaster
    Yes,

    yeah, solid record. It’s what she has done, consistently for four decades or so now.

    Cheers,
