A Banjo Player Is A Lonely Man

Posted by Greg Connor on Tuesday, May 24, 2011

New Song:

A Banjo Player Is A Lonely Man

A banjo player is a lonely man

With a brittle sound no one understands

Never been described as Heavenly light

It tests the nerves with a sound so bright


I’m working hard to do the best I can

Banjo player is a lonely man


Saturday night, I’m alone again

Wishing I had just single friend

Open up the window start to play

Everyone wishing I would go away


Picking on the porch looking at the moon

Hound dog howling right in tune

Cats on the fence in the blue black night

Screeching at me in the pale moon light

Good one Greg, "I hear ya" It's lonely here on L.I. trying to find anyone who gives Banjo lessons or instructions. "HELP!!!" Good poem though. Well done.

Yeah your right. We have to go to the basement or to the bedroom
to practice so we don't disturb anybody. But when company comes over the wife says why don't you get out your banjo and play it for them. Yeah right! The banjo man sure is a lonely man. Good poem!
