His old hands were like leather
From working in the cold Carolina weather
Stringing 60 hour weeks together
for my momma, my brother, and me
He was old fashion, he was old school
American red, white, and blue
But to me he was just cool, the man I wanted to be
It ain't setting that he's really gone
I can call the number, still here in my phone
I'd say hey dad, it's me dad
Just wanted to tell ya that I miss you bad
He'd make me laugh like he always did
Before he said goodbye he'd leave me with this
Go on boy, be strong boy, don't you shed a tear for me boy
I had a good life, one hell of a run
It's alright I love you son
Hey dad
I'd tell him that his two grandbabies are turning into little ladies
And just like him they're a little crazy
 
I talk about him all the time
I'd let him know that me and my brothers are spending more time with one another
Momma says somedays are better than others
I think she's gonna be fine
Hey dad, it's me dad
Just wanted to tell you that I miss you bad
He'd make me laugh like he always did
Before he said goodbye he'd leave me with this
Go on boy, be strong boy, don't you shed a tear for me boy
I had a good life, one hell of a run
It's alright, I love you son
Hey dad
Go on boy, be strong boy, don't you shed a tear for me boy
I had a good life, one hell of a run
It's alright, I love you son
Hey dad
