The Man With the Guitar

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy

lyrics

There's man with a guitar and he's playing us a song
Its a song he didn't write and he's singing us the words
and the words aren't even his and he's playing that guitar
even though nobody knows him and he's not really that good

cho.
Well, I went to a party where a man with a guitar
Was playing a guitar even though nobody asked him to
And I went to a party where a man with a guitar
Was playing a guitar even though nobody asked him to

And the people are all laughing as they eat, and drink, and talk
And the man with the guitar, is now finished with his song
And he looks at his shoes to no audible applause
And begins to play another little song he didn't write

And the people are still drinking and they're laughing twice as loud
And he finishes again, and again to no applause
And to nobody specific, he says that he's a leaving
He's going for a walk and won't even be that long

And he walks out to the front porch and he sits down on the stoop
and he lights his little spliff and he's glad he isn't playing
and the people at the party are now shouting for some reason
are also sort of glad he isn't there

this sort of thing it happens, all the time in every country
as fiercely in a war or at your home
So anytime you see a man playing a guitar
just forget him it's the only thing he knows

'Cause, I went to a party where a man with a guitar
was playing a guitar even though nobody asked him
I went to a party where a man with a guitar
was playing a guitar even though nobody asked him to

And If you don't know who I'm talking 'bout it's probably you!
