Leader of the Band


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
~Dan Fogelberg
The Leader of the Band

A Happy 82nd birthday to one of the best men I have ever known,
My Dad.
Love you!

    That song by Dan Fogelberg (another talent gone way too soon) has always been one of my faves....years ago I gave that song to my Father for one of his birthdays....it is a gorgeous song. Sadly my father passed in 2001.....
