"Blue Guitar" as written by and David Justin Hayward....
Blue Guitar
Blue guitar,
Fortune of my ways
Making of my days.
New chord,
Counting up the ways
Happiness is lazy.

If you don't know the song,
If you can't put the words to the tune,
Tell the rhyme from the reason,
What should it matter
To the fool or the dreamer?

New hope,
Travellers in a storm,
Finding love is warm.
New day,
The world has just begun,
Our eyes have seen the sun.

If you don't know the way,
If you can't see the wood for the trees,
Taste the wine from the water,
Well, what should it matter,
To the fool or the dreamer?

    General CommentWhat about the song itself? very nice melodic line for a start, dreamy, tranquil. he's singing about music and what it means to him. It's his living, but also he makes a connection with it on a level of just being? What does it matter if you're a fool or a dreamer when you play the chords of a guitar and they sound just right? This then becomes about our day to day: what does it matter if we can't see the wood for the trees as long as what we do feels right and we're in tune?

    It's one way to look at it.

    General CommentThis song was written by the Blue Jays (Justin Hayward & John Lodge). If you listen to it at night, you will find that you think better.
