Something My Dad Would Do

More than once I’ve done something and then said to myself, “That’s just what dad would’ve done.” It was one of those moments that the idea came for the song posted here. The examples used in the lyric are based on some good memories I have of my Dad. I know not everyone can say that their history with their father includes seeing him do something similar but if you have children, its never too late to create good memories they can recall as well as imitate.

Something My Dad Would Do

 

They were broke down on the highway

Had two little kids in the back seat

I thought about driving on by

But I couldn’t get passed the memory

Of being in the car with my father

A long time ago

When he saw a family in need of help

He pulled off the road

So I did too

It’s something my dad would do

 

Cho…

I get my chances now and then

To live life just like him

To help somebody with a heavy load

And get ‘em back on the road

And lend a hand

Do what I can

To be a man the light of the Lord can shine through

It’s just something my dad would do

 

I met her at the checkout

She was buying for her son near the front line.

I gave a thank you smile and started to leave

But the moment took me back in time

To the day in that same old store

In my teenage years

I saw my father pay a stranger’s bill

And left them standing there in tears

So I did too

It’s something my dad would do

 

Cho…

 

I can’t help but wonder

If there’ll come a day

When a child of mine will think of me

And have a reason to say

 

Cho…
