My Father's Son
J. D. Carroll

There're some things that you're born with,

Some things that you learn

And some things you just don't know how they got that way.

There're some people that you meet

And some you're just thrown in with.

Some you will hang on to and some will drift away.

Then there's the guy who was there from the start

Talking sense when I had none.

And even though sometimes we may have seemed world apart,

I¡¦ll always be proud to be My Father's Son.

Playing catch together
Or standing by the ocean
Or talking on the porch in the setting summer sun.

He'll take his time to teach me
But let me learn my own way
I'll probably never understand all the things he's done.


No one really knows
Exactly where they're headed
Everyone hits unexpected curves in the road.

But knowing someone's there,
Offering to guide you
Not forcing you to follow, helping carry the load.

Chorus X 2 and end
