Luke Skywalker’s Song

Carry a Lightsaber, Son

(Sung to Carry On My Wayward Son by Styx)

Anonymous lyrics

Once I found a pair of droids with a message

Went to Mos Eisley to book a fast passage

With Stormtroopers looking for me, till Ben slipped us free

Though I couldn’t see I still blocked the remote

Though my comp was off I still nailed the Death Star

Through the Force I heard the voices

I could hear them say:


Carry a Lightsaber, son

There’ll be peace when you are done

As I lay my head to rest

Don’t you cry no more

Went to Dagobah to find a Jedi Master

Left for Cloud City; ’twas near a disaster

Seems Vader’s my father, from a certain point of view

Yoda died saying there was another

and my sister found out she had a brother

So I left to save my father, but the Emperor said to me

Lightsaber! Strike me down; join the Dark Side!

Lightsaber! Through your hate you’ll join my side!

I nearly fried when I refused him, but father saved me in the end.
