He rode into town
with his mandolin.
The people of the town, they came to him.
He said, "I want to hear all that's pretty."
He said, "I want to hear all that's nice."
The people of
the town, they laughed at him.
They left him standing there with his silly grin.
The children of
the town, they came to him,
Magically called by his mandolin.
Their eyes like
his were sparklin',
As he played on his mandolin.
(Note from Moses -
I loved this song from the first time I heard it which was, I believe, at an Outdoor School held at Camp Yamhill in Washington County. The original song, Mandolin Man and His Secret Lyrics was written by Donovan Leitch.)
