Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems
Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1977 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2005. One day Malvina accidentally left her guitar in the dressing room at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. She had to wait till the next morning to find that it was safe, and in the meantime wrote this song.
Mister Baggage Man, use a civil hand
My little guitar, you're a pretty thing.
