This week* the words come from a song by Scott Cook, a traveling musician from Edmonton who performed at our local coffee shop recently.
“This guitar came from a timber, from the body of a tree
Through the workshop of a luthier and it’s on loan to me
And it’s good company after dinner and it fits my hand just fine
But someday another singer with a pair of hands like mine
Will coax out songs much prettier still hiding in it’s strings
And sing stronger, braver words than I could ever sing
And folks are going to love it, of this I’m almost sure
So I’ll take good care of it cause I’m borrowing it from her”
*My own end of the week tradition: words in song or story that move me in some way. I might type my very favourite parts in bold text, and I’ll always try to post a link below the quote so you can get more if you want it. The photos in these posts (and only these posts) may not be mine either but the source will appear if you move the mouse over the picture. Enjoy!
