Form: Ballad Stanzas
An old guitar that strummed your songs
my voice that sang your words
today are silent replaced by tears
as I think of night birds.
The lyrics soothed my aching heart
when life was dealing pain.
you gave me strength to live my dreams
and dance in pouring rain.
A humblebum, a man of song
with such a gentle growl.
Again I play the chords and sing
forever a Night Owl
In memory of Gerry Rafferty 1947 – 2011
