​The First Song Is For You

This song is by Tom Paxton and appears on the album Wearing the Time (1994).

I sit down each morning and I start to move my pen
It's what I know that I was meant to do
Without knowing how I find I write your name again
Oh, it's always true the first song is for you

Every time I start it's still the same
When I move my pen it writes your name
I remember all you've done and all you've tried to do
When I do the first song is for you

I sit down with my guitar and try to write a song
About all the trials and trib' we've been through
Never would have come so far without love so strong
So it's always true the first song is just for you

Every time I start it's still the same
When I move my pen it writes your name
I remember all you've done and all you've tried to do
When I do the first song is for you

I think about the times when you were there for me
There for the long hard climb
I think about the many ways you cared for me
Cared for me time after time

I can see your picture where it hangs upon the wall
Every time I see it, it's still new
I might write a thousand songs but as I write them all
It'll still be true the first song is for you

Every time I start it's still the same
When I move my pen it writes your name
I remember all you've done and all you've tried to do
But when I do the first song is for you
And when I do the first song is for you
