lyrics

Well I can never forget since I played this guitar
The memory of an old friend I knew
Who travelled these roads many years ago
Playing his songs so strong & true

My luck had turned when by chance we met
And he described to me the human heart
Thru picks and strings and a skylark’s wings
With a light that shined through the dark

Though as sure as night follows day
Time caught up, he could no more play
So he said to me…

Take this guitar, carry on
Play the songs that must play on, play on

Well I hear the songs of the Ancient Bards
Echoing in my ears
I may stumble through a 1000 false starts
But I'm drawn to this light through many, many years

Well men have fought & died for less
Many more just faded away
If the privilege of time is mine now I guess
Well I'll reach for something I must say & I'll...

Take this guitar, carry on
Play the songs that must play on, play on

This story you know it has no end
As time will ever march on & on
If I stand on the shoulders of giants
Before my dying day’s gone I’ll sing the song… to you

Take this guitar, carry on
Play the songs that must play on, play on
