Lyrics
An only child alone and wild, a cabinet maker’s sonHis hands were meant for different workAnd his heart was known to noneHe left his home and went his lone and solitary wayAnd he gave to me a gift I know I never can repay
A quiet man of music denied a simpler fateHe tried to be a soldier once, but his music wouldn’t waitHe earned his love through discipline, a thundering velvet handHis gentle means of sculpting souls took me years to understand
The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing oldBut his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soulMy life has been a poor attempt to imitate the manI’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band
My brother’s lives were different for they heard another callOne went to Chicago and the other to St PaulAnd I’m in Colorado when I’m not in some hotelLiving out this life I’ve chose and come to know so well
I thank you for the music and your stories of the roadI thank you for the freedom when it came my time to goI thank you for the kindness and the times when you got toughAnd papa, I don’t think I said I love you near enough
The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing oldBut his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soulMy life has been a poor attempt to imitate the manI’m just a living legacy to the leader of the bandI am a living legacy to the leader of the band
