Chinese Lyrics

An only child alone and will
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
He gave me a gift tied on
I never can repay
A quiet man of music denied a simpler fate. He tried to be a soldier once
but his music couldn'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 them all
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
