Lyrics
Never thought he'd go that way
I saw him the previous day
I wasn't there when he cried out
I loved him

I remember talking through
What everyone would do
His predictions did come true
I loved him

Too young to be out of my life
Too young to slip away

My Dad was my leader
My Dad was my pride
My Dad never told me
What was going on inside
If My Dad had a problem
My Dad would never show
My Dad would rather take the pain
Than to Let his children know


Somehow you think it's forever
But life sometimes can sever
The ties with those who go
I loved him

I can still recall
The sadness of it all
I think he sensed the end
I loved him

Too young to be out of my life
Too young to slip away

My Dad was my leader
My Dad was my pride
My Dad never told me
What was going on inside
If My Dad had a problem
My Dad would never show
My Dad would rather take the pain
Than to Let his children know

He had a pride which some men lacked
But pride is not enough to bring him back

My Dad was my leader
My Dad was my pride
My Dad never told me
What was going on inside
If My Dad had a problem
My Dad would never show
My Dad would rather take the pain
Than to Let his children know

I loved him

my dad
relaxing and nice mellow vocal quality -
fabulous guitar intro. and other picking - it is right-on - strings at 1:33 add just the right touch - thanks for finding it and posting it ! - touching - 3:00 acoustic solo comes naturally - and flows well - so it really seems -

Sweet song, sweet sound
A nice tribute with touching lyrics. That vocalist is good and so is the music but you mastered this beautifully Fred.

Very touching and polished piece. An especially effective collaboration. Fine drumming, as always. I especially enjoyed the backup vocals, great choices. Delightful nylon string solo, very melodic and thoughtful. Thanks for a fine piece!!
