เนื้อเพลง Leader of the Band

Leader Of The Band - Dan Fogelberg - Dan Fogelberg

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 lone

 

And solitary way

 

And he gave to me

 

A gift I know I never can repay

 

A quiet man of music

 

Denied a simpler 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 St. Paul

 

And I'm in Colorado

 

When I'm not in some hotel

 

Living out this life I've chose

And come to know so well

 

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 don't 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'm just a living legacy

 

To the leader of the band
