The Song Lives On

This song was created for Game of Bands round 91 : "Acoustic"

Lyrics:



He arrived with a lute at his shoulder
At one with the dust of the road
Singing songs with some dangerous lyrics
Telling stories they’d never heard told

The traveler sang of rebellion
And like wildfire the melody spread
‘Til the song filled the streets like an anthem
When the royalty came for his head
(The song lives on)

Though we try to carry on
The world can’t promise one more dawn
Even when the breath to sing is gone
The song lives on
The song lives on

Six-string and six-shooter in hand
She rode up to the saloon
Singing some dangerous words
Had business to settle by noon

The gangs didn’t care for her talk
They met at ten paces and turned
The townspeople still sang her song
When she fell down in the dirt

The traveler sang of rebellion
And like wildfire the melody spread
‘Til the song filled the streets like an anthem
When the royalty came for his head
(The song lives on)

Though we try to carry on
The world can’t promise one more dawn
Even when the breath to sing is gone
The song lives on
The song lives on

[Exit]
