Song Description

A man recounting the good times and influence his Father had on him

Lyrics

Father'sDay Mike Lacey 2012


Daddy was a simple man
Country to the bone
Made a living with his hands
Calluses like stone

Didn't count on luck or fate
Or wish what coulda been
Worked every day, dawn til late
But home to tuck me in

And even though he's gone, his lessons carry on

Chorus
A real man puts his family first, never walks away
Raising sons or daughters, it's always Father's Day

short harp break

When momma died, I was barely ten
Our world forever changed
He worked even harder then
And never once complained

Sent me to school, sacrificed
To get me what I need
Said the proudest moment of his life
Was seeing my degree

Bridge- Chorus

Later on I took my son
We all went for a walk
Dad was telling jokes, having fun
Most I ever heard him talk

Learned from watching how he lived
To be both strong and kind
And of the gifts a man can give
The best are love and time

Bridge - Chorus -Repeat Chorus
"Count my blessings he was there showing me the way"
