Song Description

My father taught me what being a man is all about. Now I have my children and smile as I think of all the same things my father taught me as I now raise my children and I realize how he felt looking down at his kids.

Story Behind the Song

Story of thanks to my father for teaching me about life

Lyrics

When I was a youngster in the days of my youth
I wondered what it would be like to be you
The years have gone on and I discovered the truth
It isn't always easy to make it on through

Chorus:
And I'll always look up...to you
And I'll always want to be...like you
Yeah I'll always look up...to you

You took me along and showed me things
Gave me a sense of what life means
Asked you in the Army what did you do
Said you put it on the line so we don't have to

When I got angry you helped me take it in stride
Saw a young man with wounded pride
When I needed to learn right from wrong
You were always there by my side

Chorus

You taught me how to stand and be a man
To avoid the fight as long as you can
But when the time comes when there's nothing left to do
Said give 'em hell that's what you gotta do

Chorus

Now I look at what I have in life
And my little ones ask me what its like
I smile and then I take their hand
And tell them they are my best friend

Chorus
