The Places I’ve Seen. The Faces I’ve Been.
I often envy people who can sing a song
Or can play an instrument and sing along
What would I exchange, if l had the choice
For the gift of song and a golden voice
To master any instrument, placed in my hands
And to play with my favourite bands
Any old guitar or banjo I could strum
In full harmony with the beat of a drum
Revealing my heart as my voice sings
Fingers that magically caress the strings
Plucking songs and words from the air
To create a melody so beautiful and fair
Of the places I have seen
And the faces I have been
Sweet music from deep in my soul
Classic ballads and Rock n Roll.
