Kris Kristofferson by Fans, for Fans

In appreciation of the Silver Tongued Devil


Kris Kristofferson is about to turn 84. Chris Gantry recently wrote a song for Kris that encapsulates what both of these iconic songwriters are all about.

The Narrow Path

by Chris Gantry

He baffled the witty, confounded the powers, to be who he swore he would never succeed, With a song and a guitar he made true believers out of those who had nothin’ much that they believed

Wisdom gets into the bones of the needs, wantin’ something they reach for but never attain, It took one lonesome singer to buy them their ticket, to a gold mine of freedoms they could stake their claim.

Chorus: The narrow path open to a highway that’s wide, When you make room for angels kicking devils aside. His demons were many he beat with his song. I think his name is Kris, but then I could be wrong.

We get up each day, amazed we’re still breathing, for taking those breaths there’s dues we must pay, Like that singer who leaves those great songs on your doorstep, leave something on somebody else’s today.

***Repeat Chorus****
