A Good Song
Valdy Lyrics

I am not a free man
But neither am I chained
I am not a wise man
But neither am I rearranged
I am not a new man
But neither am I old
I am not a rich man
But neither can i be seold

I am one
You are another
I have a family
You have mother

And I am not a good man
But neither am I cruel
I am not a learned man
But neither am I a fool
I am not an ordinary man
But neither am I strange
I am not your man
But that can all be changed

No, I am not your man
But that can all be changed

One of my all time favourite songs! Valdy, you are the BEST!

Absolutely timeless Music that puts me in a great mood even after these years. Thanks Valdy.

A super talented musician (listen to that guitar) not to mention a good 'raconteur'. A friend once commented that his voice "always sounds like he just took it out of the wrapper". I could not have said it better.

Thanks Valdy. Been a fan for going on 45 years and will continue to be a fan. Peace.

When I was a child and would visit my father at his house he had no TV in the living room and would play only a few of his albums while we were all working around the house. "Family Gathering" was one of them. I later bought a few Valdy albums of my own and saw him twice in the early 1980's. My two favourite Valdy songs are 'Renaissance' and one called 'Movie Scene', which was a b cut and not a radio hit. I just bought the Classic Collection CD and am listening to 'Hometwon Band' as I write this.

One great thing about youtube are the numerous videos of Canadians we have in this great country. Also it reminds us folks of some talented people like Valdy I have myself forgotten the last few years. But! Valdy how could I forget him? Oh well! Cheers to Valdy!
