(Verse 1)
G C/g G Bm C
An only child alone and wild, a cabinet-maker's son
[Am] His hands were meant for[Em] different work and his
[Am]heart was known to n[C]one[D7]
G C/g G Bm C
He left his home and went his lone and solitary way
[Am] He gave to me a [Em]gift I know I [Am]never [D7]can rep[G]ay
(Verse 2)
G C/g G Bm C
A quiet man of music, denied a simpler fate
[Am] He tried to be a [Em]soldier once, but his
[Am]music wouldn't w[C]ait[D7]
G C/g G Bm C
He earned his love through discipline, a thund'ring velvet hand
[Am] His gentle means of [Em]sculpting souls took me [Am]years to [D7]underst[G]and
