THE LITTLE BANJO SONG
© Bob Wright


One by one the 2x4s reach up to the sky
Building bones for a home
Someone starts a life
Every time the hammer falls
A nail bites deep and hard
What was once an empty lot
Soon becomes a yard

(chorus)
Keep in mind
That everything must change
Some blame man and some blame god
But nothing stays the same
Try to find
A way to let it be
Learn to turn those changes
Into possibilities

Crawling turns to walking
Turns to dancing if you dare
Learning how to make a sound
Becomes a song to share
Songs turn into memories
Turn around and they are gone
Or just for fun they might become
A little banjo song

(chorus)
