Lucky Man - Greg Lake - fingerstyle guitar arrangement

Gregory "Greg" Lake (10 Nov. 1947 - 7 Dec. 2016) was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer who gained prominence as a founding member of King Crimson,  Emerson, Lake & Palmer...

Greg Lake had one of the most unique voices in rock history in addition to being of Emerson, Lake and Palmer fame. As I young child all music for me revolved around the guitar but the first ELP album, which I started listening to at age 7 or 8, was the first time I realized that great music can exist without the guitar (although on some tunes, famously this one, Lake did actually contribute on acoustic and electric guitars). Anyway, here is that newer, supposedly better, version of "Lucky Man". Gone too soon at 69, RIP. Please "like", share, comment, and above all, enjoy!

Lucky Man

He had white horses and ladies by the score
All dressed in satin and waiting by the door

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers, they made up his bed
A gold covered mattress on which he was laid

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars for his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory, the people would sing

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him, his blood ran as he cried
No money could save him, so he laid down and died

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was
