lyrics

I remember the song my daddy used to sing
It was a soulful tune
He sang it when he woke 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
When the world failed to supply all of his needs
It was the only thing he had
He sang it when the sun would shine
He sang it through the rain
His voice would give us peace of mind
And ease all of our pain
That song he would sing.

It was a song of a man
Who did the best that he could / Who knew just from where he came
He gave his love / He held his head up high
The way a real man should / Without any shame
and whenever folks would try to bring him down
He’d keep on singing
twice as loud

Although daddy's gone, that song lingers on
and his voice sounds just 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
When my son will hear this tune
And when he asks me why I sing
I'll say it's what daddy used to do
And he’ll be singing it too.
