Sweet Music Man Lyrics
"Sing a song sweet music man ’cause I won’t be there
To hold your hand like I used to, I’m through with you
You’re a heck of a singer and powerful man but you surround yourself
With people who demand so little of you"
Kenny Rogers was one of the greatest voices in the entire music industry. For decades, he gave us chart-topping hits such as The Gambler and Lady. Sadly, in 2020, Kenny Rogers passed away at the age of 81.
