Lyrics

title - Daddy's Advice
chorus-
Don't straddle the fence
Don't take the broad road
Don't cast your pearls before the swine
But walk in the light
Come out of the darkness
When you cross Jordan
You'll be shoutin' on the other side
1
My daddy was a christian man
raised up in the hills of Tennessee
He gave me advice straight out of the Bible
Said, Son, come closer
Take my advice and listen to me
repeat chorus
2
What my daddy said
never did hurt me
And there were times i'm sure it saved my life
So I passed it on
to my son and daughters
Said, Come closer, listen to me, take my advice.
repeat chorus
Music interlude and bridge
bridge (spoken, not sung)
Well, I often wondered if what I told my children really took hold
Then one day I went to see my son
When I walked in he had his boy on his lap
And here's what I heard him say
repeat chorus
repeat last line
