Play Yer Guitar

Famous quotes containing the words play, yer and/or guitar:

    James’s great gift, of course, was his ability to tell a plot in shimmering detail with such delicacy of treatment and such fine aloofness—that is, reluctance to engage in any direct grappling with what, in the play or story, had actually “taken place”Mthat his listeners often did not, in the end, know what had, to put it in another way, “gone on.”
    James Thurber (1894–1961)

    Say “Yessum” to the ladies, an’ “Yessur” to the men,
    And when they’s company, don’t pass yer plate for pie again;
    But, thinkin’ of the things yer’d like to see upon that tree,
    Jes ‘fore Christmas be as good as yer kin be!
    Eugene Field (1850–1895)

    Swiftly in the nights,
    In the porches of Key West,
    Behind the bougainvilleas
    After the guitar is asleep,
    Lasciviously as the wind,
    You come tormenting.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
