Song Bio: My Dad

My Dad may be unwavering in his ways, but that's what makes him a rock, a beacon not to follow, but to navigate by. In a storm, you can find safety in his port and share a laugh. On your way out, he'll give you a twenty even though you don't need it. I learned to accept it as it made him feel needed. He's a good man, my Dad and strangers will ask 'Are you Jack's son?' and remember him fondly from their high school days.



My Dad

Lyrics


AT THE SCHOOLYARD, THE BOYS USED TO PLAY

TEASING, AND CALLING NAMES

MY DAD'S BIGGER THAN YOUR DAD


AND WHEN THE WORDS CAME ROUND TO ME

I JUST SMILED AND GLEAMED

MY DAD'S NICER THAN ALL YOUR DADS


HE'S BEEN SO GOOD TO ME WHEN I CAME DOWN ON MY KNEES

I KNOW THAT WHEN I'M A FATHER I'LL LOOK TO MY SON AND SAY

THIS IS

MY DAD, HE'S BEEN GOOD TO ME

MY DAD, I HOPE YOU CAN SEE

I'M TRYING TO BE AS GOOD AS MY DAD


BACK WHEN I WAS YOUNG

ALL THE KIDS HAD SOMUCH FUN

PLAYING IN THE YARD WITH MY DAD


HE'S ALWAYS TRYING TO PLEASE

HE'D LOVE TO MAKE YOU SMILE

NEVER A DULL MOMENT AROUND MY DAD


HE'S BEEN SO GOOD TO ME WHEN I CAME DOWN ON MY KNEES

I KNOW THAT WHEN I'M A FATHER I'LL LOOK TO MY SON AND SAY

THIS IS

MY DAD, HE'S BEEN GOOD TO ME

MY DAD, I HOPE YOU CAN SEE

I'M TRYING TO BE AS KIND AS MY DAD


WHEN I HIT MY TEENS

I STARTED BEING MEAN

I NEVER MEANT TO BRING ANY PAIN TO MY DAD


AND NOW AS I GROW OLDER

I CAN STILL CRY ON HIS SHOULDER

AND BORROW A COUPLE OF BUCKS FROM

MY DAD, HE'S BEEN GOOD TO ME

MY DAD, I HOPE YOU CAN SEE

I'M TRYING TO BE AS GENEROUS AS MY DAD
