Waiting For The Glue To Dry (Larry Kaplan) video

White Maine spruce, grain's so even,
You can almost hear the music now;
Side wood bent in the water steaming,
And the easy slide of a dovetail saw.
I learned these skills but no one taught me,
I make guitars that others play;
Too much rain and darn long winters,
But I love the work of a luthier's trade.

First things first, the rest for later,
I'll get it done in my sweet time.
No sense rushing, where's the fire?
I don't see no finish line.
You might think I don't deliver,
I just know how hard I try;
When you work with wood,
Gotta give the glue some time to dry...

Blackwood, ebony, any kind of rosewood,
Cedar and mahogany - I can work them all;
Bridge clamps, dressing files, fretting hammers,
Tears and smiles,
Hanging in the wood shop one and all;
Life's too short, but I'm still working,
What's the next design to try?
A hand-made, custom built, fully unconventional,
Absolute traditional folk guitar.

First things first, the rest for later,
I'll get it done in my sweet time.
No sense rushing, where's the fire?
I don't see no finish line.
You might think I don't deliver,
I just know how hard I try;
When you work with wood,
Gotta give the glue some time to dry...

(Bridge)

So six months pass, someone calls you,
Says he wants to buy a new guitar,
Just like the one he tried last summer;
So you say the price and where you are,
Then you get to work sanding down and fretting.
Soon-he-calls, says the wait's too long,
Says he shoulda got a Martin;
Went and bought a Gibson,
And yours cost-too-much-anyhow...

Bet you think I'm a gonna tell you,
I've had enough, it's quitting time;
Bet you think a luthier's work,
Is a part time hobby you start at nine.
Was a time when a man's vocation
Was what he loved and did real well
Well, I love this work and I don't mind waiting
If you don't like that you can go to hell...

First things first, the rest for later,
I'll get it done in my sweet time.
No sense rushing, where's the fire?
I don't see no finish line.
You might think I don't deliver,
I just know how hard I try;
When you work with wood,
Gotta give the glue some time to dry...

First things first, the rest for later,
I'll get it done in my sweet time.
No sense rushing, where's the fire?
I don't see no finish line.
You might think I don't deliver,
I just know how hard I try;
When you work with wood,
Gotta give the glue some time to dry...
