A song about my dad...........


I remember going through your drawers
Trying to find the truth about who you were
I found the pills that helped your Ills
I found your medals from the war
and I realized I'm half the man you were
3>They don't make em like that

Trying to walk in your shoes when I was ten
illusions of a world that would end
you through your gun into the water
to protect your sons and daughter
I am only half the man you were
Everybody's got some bad things
my old man had just a few
my brother got the anger
and me the baby blues

Now the time has gone around the bend
I get to look behind at who you were then
you overcame an awful mother
whispers of a mystery borther
I still don't know exactly who you were
