For A Guy We Felt We Knew

Inspired by Greg Allman 1946-2017

 

Well you know this guy I knew

He had some good things about him

I could mention one or two

 

Well this guy had some not so good things about him

Most guys have some too

His life was not always a beautiful song

But there is a melody that lingers still

A good verse and a hook or two

 

And I should mention the music too

 

He had some good things about him

Much more than one or two

 

He fell in love and out and in

I believe at last he has escaped the blues

Women can be so beautiful and then

They really get to know you

And then…

 

Well this guy had some good things about him

Much more than one or two

 

Highs and lows and around you go

Found the truth just before the end;

You can have it all

But not just all right now

 

And the love of a lifetime

Can never end

You just add on

And begin again

 

Well you know this guy I knew

He had some good things about him

Much more than one or two

 

I’m singing about a legend of the blues

Hell, could be singing about me too.

Could even be about you

If you were born sometime

After World War 2

 

The beauty came wrapped in it’s sorrow

The sadness has passed on it’s way along with him

The beauty that he sang about

May have been mixed in sorrow but

For A Guy We Felt We Knew. Greg Allman, Edgardo, writersoftheriograndeThat beauty still remains
