Leader of the band

	  Intro: G7 C Am Em D G (C/G) G (C/G) G (C/G) G  
Verse:  
G        (C/G)    G              Bm              C    
An only child alone and wild, a cabinet maker's son,   
Am                        Em                    Am                 C    D  
His hands were meant for different work and his heart was known to none.   
G           (C/G)     G                Bm       C  
He left his home and went his lone and solitary way  
.      Am            Em     Am    D7            G   (C/G) G (C/G) G (C/G) G  
And he gave to me a gift I know I never can repay. 
  
G      (C/G)   G         Bm             C    
A quiet man of music, denied a simpler fate,  
Am                  Em                Am              C    D  
He tried to be a soldier once but his music wouldn't wait.  
G      (C/G)    G                          Bm               C    
He earned his love through discipline, a thund'ring velvet hand.  
.    Am              Em                      Am      D7      G    
His gentle means of sculpting souls took me years to understand.

.(C/G) G (C/G) G (C/G) G G (C/G) G Bm C My brothers' lives were different, for they heard another call.
