Earl Scruggs

one of the best banjo players that ever lived
we have to thank God for all that he'd give
a gift from God his life he lived
a heritage from his life we live
a happy heritage from the world that we lived
but tunes from a man that made us grin
a prodigy most scientist would begin
a gift from God i would throw in
lightening fingers i have heard him called
compared to jimmy hindrex 
i wonder why at all
the music he gave us one and all
a thing by itself
that will never fall.

    It sure is toe tappin music and makes it hard to sit still when someone like Earl is playing. Never hear this kind of music today. Too bad!
