Song Description

Thought I would update this tune. Lots of folk like it and I thought I would put it out there again with a new cast.

Story Behind the Song

This is a remix of one of my favorites. I slimmed it down to guitars, bass, drums and Fiddle. Hank T. does the vocals, Wanda V. on the fiddle, Byron on bass, Brian on drums, Pat, Darin and I do the guitars.

Lyrics

My Father's Son
-J. D. Carroll
©2003

There're some things that you're born with,
Some things that you learn
And some things you just don't know how they got that way.

There's people that you meet
And some you're just thrown in with.
Some you will hang on to and some will drift away.

Then there's the guy who's been there from the start
Talking sense when I had none.
And even though sometimes we may have seemed world apart,
I'm always proud to be My Father's Son.

Playing catch together
Or standing on the shore
talking on the porch in the setting summer sun.

He'll take his time to teach me
But let me learn my own way
I'll probably never understand all the things he's done.

He's the guy who's been there from the start
Talking sense when I had none.
And even though sometimes we may have seemed world apart,
I'm always proud to be My Father's Son.

No one really knows
Exactly where we're going
Everyone hits unexpected curves in the road.

But knowing someone's there,
to protect and guide you
Not forcing you to follow, just helping carry the load.

Yea, he's the guy who's been there from the start
Talking sense when I had none.
And even though sometimes we may have seemed world apart,
I'm always proud to be My Father's Son.
