H You're Such A Great Man

to the tune of Stranger in a Strange Land

Was many years ago that you first picked up your guitar
You were an urchin full of hopes and dreams
And oh it seems to me you gave us many real great songs
In my heart, they'll ring forever:

Don't fade away
Don't fade away
Don't fade away
Don't fade away

On your day off you scan the horizon, sea and sky
Your fish rod wanders endlessly
Until the dusk will fall and friends from home discover why
Here you're calling: Rest your fear
I feel so free, I feel so free
Lost in this place, I'll catch a plaice!

H you're such a great man
Your voice so nice and low
Clad in sexy black leather
Make me feel at home

Forty-seven years have gone
And many songs have come my way
Your hands on the guitar made history
There were no wasted years, with Charlie, Psycho, ASAP
Preserved on CD, for all to hear!

Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away

What became of the man that started?
He’s not gone, nor his soul departed
He’s still here and his voice –
Our passionzone!

H you’re such a great man
Your voice so nice and low
Clad in sexy black leather
Make me feel at home
