6. The Legacy (Danny Hooper)

    When my Dad was about 23 he took up the guitar.  He was the first in his family to     nurture the gift of music.  This developed into a dream and soon he and Mum could     be seen performing at various functions across Adelaide.

    It wasn’t long before they started a family and the gift was passed on to my three         sisters and eventually me.

    At age 10, Dad sat me down to teach me the guitar and over several years this             beautiful gift of music became my passion which, in turn, is being passed on to my     children.  I have called it The Legacy because that’s just what a Legacy is.                 Something created and then handed down through generations.

It was just a dream in my Dads heart
A young man not more than 23
Who’d have known that old guitar
Would someday become a legacy

He sang his way to a young girl’s heart
They made plans to start a family
And with the son she placed in his arms
Came the chance to share the legacy

We didn’t have much but the good Lord’s touch
Times were hard back then
But the dream stood strong as the years rolled on
And the journey never ends
What a gift he carved from that old guitar
When dad handed on the legacy

I was ten years old when my life changed
Dad said come sit down with me
Didn’t know back then how much he gave
When he handed on the legacy

We didn’t have much but the good Lord’s touch
Times were hard back then
But the dream stood strong as the years rolled on
And the journey never ends
What a gift he carved from that old guitar
When dad handed on the legacy

We didn’t have much but the good Lord’s touch
Times were hard back then
But the dream stood strong as the years rolled on
And the journey never ends

That old guitar sure seen some change
Three generations full of memories
It still brings a smile to a young boys face
As I hand on the Legacy. But there’s so much more…
