เพลง : leader of the band

ศิลปิน : dan fogelberg

เนื้อเพลง :

An only child alone and wild

(A) cabinet maker’s son

His hands were meant for different work

And his heart was known to none —

He left his home and went his own

In solitary way

And he gave to me a gift I know I never can repay

A quiet man of music

Denied a simplier fate

He tried to be a soldier once but his music wouldn’t wait

He earned his love through discipline

A thundering, velvet hand

His gentle means of sculpting souls

Took me years to understand.

The leader of the band is tired

And his eyes are growing old

But his blood runs through my instrument

And his song is in my soul —

My life has been a poor attempt

To imitate the man

I’m just a living legacy

To the leader of the band.

My brothers lives were different

For they heard another call

One went to Chicago

And the other to Saint Paul

And I’m in Colorado

When Im not in some hotel

Living out this life I’ve chose

And come to know so well.

(Instrumental)

I thank you for the music and your stories of the road

I thank you for the freedom when it came my time to go

I thank you for the kindness

And the times when you got tough

And papa, I dont think i said I love you near enough —

The leader of the band is tired

And his eyes are growing old

But his blood runs through my instrument

And his song is in my soul —

My life has been a poor attempt

To imitate the man

I’m just a living legacy

To the leader of the band

I am a living legacy

To the leader of the band.
