LIVING LEGEND
(Gibson/Silverstein?)


Hey Mister-can you use an old folksinger
Would your patrons like some old time soul
Can they dig the "Foggy Mountain Breakdown"
Sorry I don't play no rock 'n roll.

But I can make'em cry to "Molly Darling"
Sing along to "Row Your Boat Ashore"
I'll play until the dawn and
When the crowd is gone
Mister, I'll be glad to sweep your floor.

You should have been in New York back in '60
Hey, wasn't I a star there for awhile
But New York messed up my head
Got strung out on reds
Bobby Dylan went and copped my style

Oh, but I can make'em cry to "Molly Darling"
Sing along to "Row Your Boat Ashore"
Streetlife sure is fun
When you're twenty-one
But, Mister, I ain't twenty-one no more

So, I take the love of them that still remember
Take the help from them who care to give
Swap my songs for sandwiches and shelter
Even a living legend's gotta live

Oh, but I can make'em cry to "Molly Darling"
Sing along to "Row Your Boat Ashore"
Michael, row your boat ashore.
Hallelujah
Michael, row your boat ashore.
Hallelujah
Michael, row your boat ashore.
Hallelujah
Michael, row your boat ashore.
Hallelujah
