harry chapin – oh man lyrics
leon wrote a song for his special girl
and elton and bernie did too!
but you’ve been mine for such a long time
it’s my turn to write one for you
and this is the best
that this poor boy could do.
you see i don’t know what to tell you babe
i can’t say thanks a lot
for i know i really owe you
for almost everything i got.
you were with me in the good times
and when things were going bad
you were with me when your love
was the only thing i had.
i have been a song man
for a long long time
coming up with some melodies
trying to find some words that rhyme.
and while i have been singing
you’ve been there to see me through
and so i think it’s long past time
that i wrote this song for you.
i was going to keep it simple
and not make it too long
but i had hoped to make it beautiful
for after all it is your song.
you know how i love my music
it is my life and my livelihood
but of all that’s happened to me babe
you are everything that’s good.
