Lyrics

He was Good
By Becky Wiles

I can still smell the leather on those Red Wing boots
I can still feel the calluses on his hands
He trained every dog we had from the time they were pups
He showed me how swing a seven iron without picking my head up
"Don't take your eye off the ball," he'd say

And sure there are some things my daddy didn't do
The way I wished he would
He made me so mad with his damn rules
But I always knew where he stood
And I always knew he was good

Deep down, most times, I knew he was right if I'm being honest,
But it never stopped me from putting up a fight oh I promise, I promise
He didn't always say too much, but when he did, you bet you heard
But that also meant that when he said "good job," you truly took him at his word
He was man of his word

Sure there are some things my daddy didn't do
The way I wished he would
And he made me so mad with his damn rules
But I always knew where he stood
And I always knew he was good

I know he heard
And I know that he cared
And I know that he saw
More than I realized

And my mind is full of memories of back then
Dancin' in the den to Rockin' Robin

Sure there are some things my daddy didn't do ...
The way I wished he would
And he made me so mad with his damn rules
But I always knew where he stood
And I always knew he was good
