Lyrics

Father, Brother, Friend
Tom Cadham and Ben Goerner - Copyright 2005


The things that I remember, Bout the times we shared back then
Scraped knees, climbing trees, And hangin with my best friend
I remember the things his ma would say
To get us through a rainy day
Together we could laugh our cares away
Of all the things that I recall what I remember most of all
He was a father, he was a brother, he was a friend

First dates, fast cars, too young to get into the bars
Take our chances with a 2 4 under the stars
No matter what trouble we got in, we were brothers until the end
I always had the time for my best friend
Of all the things that I recall, what I remember most of all
He was a father, he was a brother, he was a friend

Bridge
And I remember the spark in this new dad?s eyes
When his first born came, it was no surprise
You could feel the love that he had to give such a strong and gentle way to live
That?s the way that it was with my best friend, a family man to the very end
And sometimes I think I see him now and then
Of all the things that I recall, what I remember most of all

lead

bridge
Once in a while, his mamma still cries, I see it in his childrens eyes
I know they miss him very much his playful ways his caring touch
Oh how I miss the times I?d spend being there with my best friend
And sometimes I think I see him now and then
Of all the things that I recall, what I remember most of all
He was a father, he was a brother, he was a friend
