Daddy's Song
from the album The Truth Inside (Skiptone Music 2016)

lyrics

I remember the song my daddy used to sing
it was a soulful tune.
He sang it when he woke up in the morning first thing
and in the afternoon.

He sang it in the evening time
before he went to bed
and now that I've become a man
it stays within my head.

I remember the song my daddy used to sing
in both good times and bad.
and when the world would try to deny all of our needs
it was the only thing we had

He sang it when the sun would shine
and he sang it through the rain.
His voice would bring us peace of mind
and ease all of our pain
that song he would sing.

It was the song of a man who did the best that he could.
He gave his love the way a real man should
and whenever folks would try to bring him down
he'd keep on singing twice as loud.

And so though now daddy's gone the song lingers on
and his voice sounds much like mine.
And when I wake up every day and go on my way
I know he's with me every time.

Maybe there will come a day my son will hear this tune
and when he asks me why I sing
I'll say its what daddy used to do
and he'll be singing it too.

It was the song of a man who knew from just where he came
He held his head up high without any shame
and whenever folks would try to bring him down
he'd keep on singing twice as loud.

And so though now daddy's gone the song lingers on
and his voice sounds much like mine.
And when I wake up every day and go on my way
I know he's with me every time.

Maybe there will come a day my son will hear this tune
and when he asks me why I sing
I'll say its what daddy used to do
and he'll be singing it too.
