My Father's Son
c J.D. Carroll / Creative Ventures Music

There are some things that you're born with
And some things that you learn,
And some things that you just don't know
How they got that way.

There are people that you meet
And some you're just thrown in with.
Some you will hang on to
And some will slip away.

Then there's the guy who was there from the start.
Talking sense when I had none.
And even though sometimes we may have seemed worlds apart
I'll always be proud to be My Father's Son.

Playing catch together or standing by the ocean
Or talking on the porch
In the setting summer sun.

He'll take his time to teach me
But let me learn my own way
I'll probably never understand
All the things he's done.


No one really knows
Exactly where we're headed
Everyone hits unexpected curves in the road.

But knowing someone's there
Offering to guide you
Not forcing you to follow
But helping carry the load.

Chorus x2 and end
