A Life Well Played
A simple man born long ago in 1915 Whose hands were meant to play the 6-string A harmonica was all that Les could afford This young mans life started out by this accord 94 years young and so much he gave A sound forever his own it was A life well played One autumn night we met after his set He was a wry and witty old man in downtown NY "I'll sign your 6-string young man" I can still see him smile As he signed his name across my guitar His gift was a part of his fame 94 years young so much he gave A sound forever his own it was A life well played He passed away quietly in August 2009 My thoughts turned towards the night When he was so kind His hands so worn so tired now finally at rest And I'm sure that Les is pickin' with the best of the best 94 years young and so much he gave A sound forever his own it was A life well played
