    LEADER OF THE BAND
    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 thund'ring 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 thru' 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 brother's 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
