Jerry Jeff Walker - The Gift

Jerry Jeff Walker
Jerry Jeff Walker

In a boarding house, I'd lay upstairs,
And dream of how I'd live someday
Downstairs there sat, a man who had
A guitar he never learned to play

For my thirteenth birthday, grandma bought the guitar
Told me I should learn how to play
And the gift she gave me changed me
'Cause the music is the main thing,
That got me to this point here today

Chorus:And I was lucky, 'cause I used her gift
To get in touch with how to live
And looking back I now realize, music changed my life

Just out of school, I had no clue
Of what it was I'd like to do
I only know, the open road
Was the way I chose to pass on through

I took that guitar with me, down the lonesome highway
And I began my search for a song
And somewhere in the distance, the music and the mystery
Of how I would live come along
