    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, pap, 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 am the living legacy
    To the leader of the band.
