He can make you love…He can get you high…He will bring you down…Then he’ll make you cry

The Guitar Man – Bread (1972) Remastered FLAC Audio HD 1080p

“The Guitar Man” was released in October of 1972 on Bread’s fifth album, Guitar Man. Bread have always been a guilty pleasure, well maybe there was a time back in the day I thought of them in that term (since we hardcore prog/rock lovers weren’t supposed to be listening to such bubblegum pop)….at one point it seemed uncool to love Bread, now I realize it’s very cool indeed to just float away on the cool, sweet melodies they seemed to so effortlessly nail. If you have doubts, just put on either Best of Bread (2001’s Expanded Edition) and see if you don’t make to the end?! 😉

Thanks for watching!

[Lyrics]
Who draws the crowd and plays so loud
Baby it’s the guitar man
Who’s gonna steal the show
You know, baby, it’s the guitar man

He can make you love
He can make you cry
He will bring you down
Then he’ll get you high
Somethin’ keeps him goin’
Miles and miles a day
To find another place to play

Night after night who treats you right
Baby, it’s the guitar man
Who’s on the radio
You go listen to the guitar man

Then he comes to town
And you see his face
And you think you might
Like to take his place
Somethin’ keeps him driftin’
Miles and miles away
Searchin’ for the songs to play

Then you listen to the music
And you sing along
You want to get the meaning
Out of each and every song
Then you find yourself a message
And some words to call your own
And take them home

He can make you love
He can get you high
He will bring you down
Then he’ll make you cry
Somethin’ keeps him movin’
But no one seems to know
What it is that makes him go

Then the lights begin to flicker
And the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter
And the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice
He’s just got to find
Another place to play

Either way
Got to play
Either way
Got to play
