Happy 60th Birthday Dadoo!

Any man can be a father.  It takes someone special to be a dad.  ~Author Unknown

Since I heard this song (on the radio which has only happened like 3 times in my life) on the radio last week and it was my song that I danced with my dad to at my wedding, I thought that it would be appropriate to share it on his 60th birthday!

That's my job: Conway Twitty
I woke up cryin' late at night when I was very young

I had dreamed my father had passed away and gone
my world revolved around him I couldn't lie there anymore
so I made my way down the mirrored hall and tapped upon his door
And I said Daddy I'm so afraid how will I go on with you gone that way
Don't wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you and he said

Chorus:

That's my job
that's what I do
everything I do is because of you to keep you safe with me
that's my job you see

Later we barely got along this teenage boy and he
most of the fights it seems were over different dreams we each held for me
he wanted knowledge and learning
I wanted to fly out west
said I could make it out there if I just had the fare
I got half will you loan me the rest
and I said Daddy I'm so afraid there's no guarentee in the plans I've made
and if I should fail who will pay my way back home
and he said
::CHORUS::

Every person carves his spot and fills the hole with light
and I pray some day I might light as bright as he

I woke up early one bright fall day to spread the tragic news
after all my travels I settled down within a mile or two

I make my living with words and rhyme and all this tragedy
should go into my head and out instead as bits of poetry
but I say Daddy I'm so afraid how will I go on with you gone this way
how can I come up with a song to say I love you

That's my job
that's what I do
everything I do is because of you to keep you safe with me
that's my job you see
everything I do is because of you to keep you safe with me
