The Leader of the Band

Here's my second post for the day. After making a post-Mother's-Day-post for my everdearest Mama, it's but right to create one also for my everdearest Daddy. It's also my simple way of thanking him for all the little and big things he's done for me and Zion. And similar to what I did for my Mama's post, here's a song (well, a portion of it...) which I dedicate to my Daddy - the true Leader of the Band.

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, pap, 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
Im just a living legacy
To the leader of the band
I am the living legacy
To the leader of the band.
