Just a smile, just a glance
The Prince of Darkness
He just walked past
There's been a lot of people
And they've had a lot to say
But this time, I'm gonna tell it my way

There was a town,
There was a strange little town, they called "The World"
It was a lonely, lonely little town
'Til one day a stranger appeared
And their hearts rejoiced, and the sad little town was happy again
But there were some that doubted; they disbelieved, so they (mocked/marked) him
And that stranger, he went away
Now the sad little town that was sad yesterday
It's a lot sadder today

I walked in a lot of places I never should've been
But I know that the Messiah, he will come again



Billy Bonce

Lyrics

just a smile, just a glance
the prince of darkness
he just walked past
there's been a lot of evil
there've been a lot of sayin'
but this time I'm gonna tell it my way:

There was a town
Strange, lonely little town, they called 'The World'
a lovely, lovely little town
'Till one day a stranger appeared
And their hearts rejoiced, and the sad little town was happy again
But there were some that doubted; they disbelieved, so they mocked him
And the stranger, he went away
Now the sad little town that was sad yesterday
is a lot sadder today...

I walked in a lot of places that he never should have been
But I know that the Messiah, he will come again

It makes me happy that Roy is not forgotten for he truly is one of the finest guitarists!  YouTube is a wonderful thing.  RIP Roy

I believe the Rolling Stone magazine once called him "the world's greatest unknown guitarist" My roommate and I used to listen to his music often back in 74. That roommate of mine who was a dear friend got into heroin for a number of years. Got clean for 13 years, got back on and OD'd in less than a month. He was 2 weeks shy of his 65th birthday. I drive by the house he lived in almost every day. I sure miss stopping by and having a cup of coffee with him. We went way back. God Bless you and your loved ones.

Exactly!!!

@Porkleaker Can't think he'd be anything other than admiring. Jeff and Tim both dead too soon....what are the chances eh?
Would LOVE to have seen Buchanan.

@gary morgan But what'd Jeff Buckley think of him? jk too late. Though another awesome musician taken too soon.

Amen,...Amen,...Amen. i had the distinct pleasure to meet him twice being from his home town of Lanham MD and his humility was off the charts. His playing had sooooo much "soul" while others just shred and think they are doing something. RIP Roy,...Brother,...you were one of a kind,..period,...end of story.

Roy took the time to show me some of his technique one on one. He explained how he achieved his sound, spent time encouraging me and willingly corresponded with me for a couple of years. His graciousness was surpassed only by his massive talent. Anyone who heard him or watches these old videos will never consider him an ‘unknown guitarist’.

Tim Basham

@Robert Munoz Agreed. Frank Marino is one of the most unsung guitar heroes of rock and roll.

I saw him in Portland Maine 2 weeks before he committed suicide, he shook my hand as he came by after the show in a little club called Raul's roadside Attraction, nice guy and incredible guitar player, you will be missed!
