Between A Father And A Son

Original and similar lyrics
Heywood was a daddy in 1942 He couldn't read or make his letters He said "Boy I hope you don't do like I did" That was my dad he was talking to So my father grew up stronger Bigger dreams and bigger plans The first to go to college But he can still work hard with his two hands Thanks to his old man Yeah he learned to throw a baseball How to sail a ishing line He learned about forgiveness 'Cause you just can't waste the time And the circle goes unbroken But there's so much left undone That's just how it is Between a father and a son Well I became a daddy At the age of twenty-three I didn't know what I was doing That my daddy would have done in place of me I felt lost at sea So I just kept it simple Took it one day at a time Followed the foot-steps Of the men who came before me in my life We're doing just fine 'Cause you learn to throw a baseball How to sail a ishing line And you learn about forgiveness 'Cause you just can't waste the time And the circle goes unbroken But there's so much left undone That's just how it is Between a father and a son And the circle goes unbroken But there's so much left undone That's just how it is Oh that's just how it is Between a father and a son Between a father and a son Between a father and a son

Why (Bonus Track)

NICHOLE NORDEMAN
We rode into town the other day, just me and my daddy. he said I'd finally reached that age, and I could ride next to him on a horse that of course, was not quite as wild. We heard a crowd of people shouting, and so we stopped to find out why. There was that man that my dad said he loved, but today there was fear in his eyes. So I said, “Daddy, why are they screaming? Why are the faces of some of them beaming? Why is He dressed in that bright purple robe? I bet that crown hurts Him more than He shows. Daddy please, can't you do something? He looks as though He's gonna cry. You said He was stronger than all of those guys; Daddy, please tell me why. Why does everyone want Him to die?' Later that day, the sky grew cloudy, and Daddy said I should go inside. Somehow he knew things would get stormy. Boy was he right, but I could not keep from wondering if there was something he had to hide. So after he left, I had to find out. I was not afraid of getting lost. So I followed the crowds to a hill where I knew men had been killed, and I heard a voice come from the cross. And it said, “Father, why are they screaming? Why are the faces of some of them beaming? Why are they casting their lots for my robe? This crown of thorns hurts me more than it shows. Father please, can't you do something? I know that You must hear my cry. I thought I could handle a cross of this size. Father, remind me why. Why does everyone want me to die? Oh, when will I understand why?' My precious son, I hear them screaming. I'm watching the face of the enemy beaming. But soon I will clothe you in robes of my own. Jesus, this hurts me much more than you know, but this dark hour, I must do nothing, though I've heard your unbearable cry. The power in your blood destroys all of the lies; soon you'll see past their unmerciful eyes. Look, there be love, see the child trembling by her father's side. Now I can tell you why... she is why you must die.

Her Father Didn't Like Me Anywhere

Shane Macgowan And The Popes "The Snake"
The coat she wore still lies upon the bed The book I gave her that she never read She left without a single word to say Her father didn't like me anyway She always wanted more than I could give Cause she wasn't happy with the way we lived I suppose I should have begged with her to stay Her father didn't like me anyway And Oh! Daddy didn't like the clothes I wear And Oh! Daddy didn't like my hair I suppose that if we tried to we could have found something to say But daddy didn't even care To tell the truth I didn't have the nerve And I'm only getting just what I deserve She left without a single word today Her father was a right cunt anyway

To A Band That I Loved

JASON ISBELL "Something More Than Free"
Though everyone tried to ignore us We'd scared them all off by the There you stood looking proud What was left of the crowd at our show and I was 22 backwoods years old You were singing that night by yourself And I thought I was the only one left From an old southern town New ideas bouncing round in my head And I thought everyone like me was dead And somehow you put down my fears on a page When I still had nothing to say And how I miss you today May you find what you gave, all that hope Somewhere down at the end of your rope Now I know you'll be fine on your own And your families all need you at home And the dream was just smoke At least you all got the joke off the bat And you were alright with that And somehow I'm still out here burning my days Your voice makes the miles melt away I'll be guarding your place In the lights on the stage of my heart I guess we're all still finding our part And somehow I'm still out here seeing your faces In likely and unlikely places Somewhere playing too loud Or in what's left of the crowd at our show Hanging out when it's past time to go Hanging out when it's past time to go

Watch The Lamb

Boltz Ray
Walking on the road to Jerusalem, The time had come to sacrifice again, My two small sons, They walk beside me on the road, The reason that they came was to watch the lamb. Daddy, daddy, What will we see there, There's so much that we don't understand, So I told them of Moses and father Abraham, Then I said dear children watch the lamb, There will be so many in Jerusalem today, We must be sure the lamb doesn't run away, And I told them of Moses and father Abraham, Then I said dear children watch the lamb. When we reached the city, I knew something must be wrong, There were no joyful worshipers, No joyful worship songs, I stood there with my children in the midst of angry men, Then I heard the crowd cry out Crucify Him. We tried to leave the city but we could not get away, Forced to play in this drama a part I did not wish to play, Why upon this day were men condemned to die, Why were we standing here, Where soon they would pass by. I looked and said, even now they come, The first one cried for mercy, The people gave him none, The second one was violent, He was arrogant and loud, I still here his angry voice screaming at the crowd, Then someone said there's Jesus, I scarce believed my eyes, A man so badly beaten, He barely looked alive, Blood poured from His body, From the thorns upon His brow, Running down the cross, Falling to the ground. I watched Him as He struggled, I watched Him as He fell, The cross came down upon His back, The crowd began to yell, In that moment I felt such agony, In that moment I felt such loss, Till a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed, you, carry His cross. At first I tried to resist him, Then his hand reached for his sword, So I knelt and took the cross from the Lord, I placed it on my shoulder, And started down the street, The blood that he'd been shedding was running down my cheek. They led us to Golgotha, They drove nails deep in His feet and hands, Yet upon the cross I heard Him pray Father, forgive them. Oh, never have I seen such love in any other eyes, Into thy hands I commit my spirit He prayed and then He died, I stood for what seemed like years, I'd lost all sense of time until I felt two tiny hands holding tight to mine, The children stood there weeping, I heard the oldest say, Father please forgive us, the lamb ran away. Daddy, daddy, What have we seen here, There's so much that we don't understand, So I took them in my arms, And we turned and faced the cross, Then I said dear children watch the lamb.
