José Feliciano – Behind This Guitar (Lyric Video)

I love the towns, I love the crowds
Love the way my life’s turned out
The way it has
I get to sing and chase my dreams
But like they say with all good things
There’s strings attached
Don’t get me wrong my life’s a song
You know me
I belong girl
Where you are
But from time to time it feels like I’m
Trapped and somehow stuck behind this guitar
Behind this guitar
Just a boy who had a dream in his heart
Behind this guitar
Just a guy who didn’t believe I’d get this far
When I was a kid and the other kids
Were doin’ what most kids did
Well, there I was
Sitting on the edge of my twin bed
Picking till my fingers bled
And it got in my blood
That’s not to say I didn’t fish or play
Goof around and act my age
And be home at night
From the age of 9 till right here tonight
You might say I pretty much grew up behind this guitar
Behind this guitar
just a boy who had a dream in his heart
Behind this guitar
Just a guy who didn’t believe I’d get this far, I’d get this far
Well I’ve always said that I’ve been blessed
Why me? is anybody’s guess
Well, I don’t know
But I’m well aware that the man upstairs
Could’ve answered any other’s prayers
And let mine go
But thanks to him my family and friends
Those who got me where I am
You know who you are
But with that in mind
The truth is I’m
Not the only one behind this guitar

LYRICS
I love the towns, I love the crowds
Love the way my life’s turned out
The way it has
I get to sing and chase my dreams
But like they say with all good things
There’s strings attached
But don’t get my wrong my life’s a song
And you know me… I belong girl
Where you are
But from time to time it feels like I’m
Trapped and somehow stuck behind this guitar

Behind this guitar
Is just a boy who had a dream in his heart

Behind this guitar
Is just a guy who didn’t believe he got this far

When I was a kid and the other kids
Were doin’ what most kids did
Well, there I was
Sitting on the edge of my twin bed
Pickin’ til my fingers bled and it
Got in my blood
That’s not to say I didn’t fish or play
Goof around and act my age
And be home at night
But from the age of 9 til right here tonight
You might say I pretty much grew up behind this guitar

Behind this guitar
Is just a boy who had a dream in his heart
Behind this guitar
Is just a guy who didn’t believe I get this far

Well I’ve always said that I’ve been blessed
Why me? is anybody’s guess
Well, I don’t know
But I’m well aware that the man upstairs
Could’ve answered any other’s prayers
And let mine go
But thanks to him, my family and friends
Those who got me where I am
You know who you are
with that in mind
The truth is I’m

Not the only one behind this guitar

José Feliciano is a nine-time Grammy and Lifetime Achievement Award winning Puerto Rican-born musician, singer and composer. He is known for many international hits, including his rendition of “California Dreamin’” featured in Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 hit movie “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”, The Doors’ “Light My Fire”, “Che Sarà”, “La Copa Rota”, “Por Qué Te Tengo Que Olvidar?”, and one of the best-selling Christmas songs of all time “Feliz Navidad”. In 1968, Feliciano stirred national controversy and made history as the first artist ever to stylize the national anthem. His soulful recording of “The Star-Spangled Banner” became the first version of the anthem to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. José Feliciano’s new album “Behind This Guitar” was produced by long-time collaborator and Grammy-nominated producer Rick Jarrard. It features the single “Behind This Guitar” and a cover of “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac.
