I?m Sorry Dad

Written by Chandler Moon

Verse 1:
I?m sorry son I can?t make it to your ball game.
Every time, he had a new excuse.
And it always seemed like friends meant more than family.
Cuz he?d stay all night with them drinking booze.
But the time he tried to teach me a lesson
By using the force of his hand,
I was old enough I didn?t have to take that stuff.
So I walked away, and as the door slammed, I said

Chorus:
I?m sorry dad that its come to this
You always wanted me to be man
Well now I?m taking my first steps.
Cuz I don?t want to be
A stubborn fool who doesn?t give a damn.
No, I don?t want to be like that.
I?m sorry dad.

Verse 2:
So it wasn?t hard to turn down my first offer.
I?ve seen hits like that destroy a family.
And when temptation came to cheat on my wife,
Remembering my mother?s tears made the choice easy.
My twelve year old doesn?t know his grand dad.
Bringing up the past is one of my greatest fears.
And although my sister claims my old man has changed,
All I recall are my first eighteen years, and I say

Chorus:
I?m sorry dad that its come to this
You always wanted me to be man
Well now I?m taking my first steps.
Cuz I don?t want to be
A stubborn fool who doesn?t give a damn.
No, I don?t want to be like that.
I?m sorry dad.

Verse 3:
And now he's lying there
on his death bed
I haven?t given him forgiveness. I haven?t let myself forget.

Chorus
I?m sorry dad that its come to this
You always wanted me to be man
Well now I?m taking my first steps.
Cuz I don?t want to be
A stubborn fool who doesn?t give a damn.
No, I don?t want to be like that.
I?m sorry dad.

No, I don?t want to be like that.
I?m sorry dad.
I?m sorry dad.
I?m sorry dad.
