ME AND MY DAD
[ country ]

     ‘Bout the same time each year at the rise of summer’s sun
     We’d head home to the family farm for some family vacation fun
     Back to where my dad was raised in Walker County, proud and true
     Me an’ my mom, my dad, little brother an’ sister too

           Me an’ my dad, we’d go fishin’, talk all about my ambition
           Lately I’ve been wishin’ for all those best times we once had
           Down home on the family farm, me an’ my dad

     Now I’ve long since have grown, my dad lives in a home
     Gran'dad’s long since passed on an' the family farm’s long gone
     We work hard but can’t make ends meet an’ afford vacation, too
     Me an’ my son, his mom, little brother an’ sister Sue

           He an’ his dad would like to go fishin’, talk all about his ambition
           Yeah, we’ve both long been missin’ all those best times we never had
           Down home on the family farm, he an’ his dad

     Now this hope remains in me, away from home, workin’ day an’ night
     That the circle will remain unbroken underneath these harsh city lights

           And someday we’ll all go fishin’, laugh all about our ambition
           Never again to be missin’ all those best times we wish we had
           Gran'dad, my son, his mom, little brother an’ sister Sue
           My brother, sister, too and me an’ my dad *


* For Thomas Johnson, Sr..."down home on the family farm"; Walker County, Alabama.
