Bread - The guitar man
Tekst en muziek: David Gates
(1972)



Who draws the crowd and plays so loud
Baby, it’s the guitar man
Who’s gonna steal the show, you know
Baby, it’s the guitar man



He can make you love, he can make you cry
He will bring you down, then he’ll get you high
Somethin’ keeps him goin’, miles and miles a day
To find another place to play



Night after night, who treats you right
Baby, it’s the guitar man
Who’s on the radio, you go listen
To the guitar man



Then he comes to town and you see his face
And you think you might like to take his place
Somethin’ keeps him driftin’, miles and miles away
Searchin’ for the songs to play



Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along
You want to get the meaning out of each and ev’ry song
Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own
And take them home



He can make you love, he can get you high
He will bring you down, then he’ll make, make you cry
Somethin’ keeps him movin’, but no one seems to know
What it is that makes him go



Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice, he’s just got to find
Another place to play



Fade away, got to play
Fade away, got to play
