about

Dad's always there for you...for better or for worse. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

lyrics

Dear Ol Dad

I want to live my life
In a western town
I want to drive all night
In a paper crown
When the wind picks up
And blows the whole thing down
I can only hear your voice when you talk loud

Dear Ol Dad
He’s got the grown up blues
Dear Ol Dad
He gave his dreams to you

I want to live my life
In a western town
I want to fly all night
Through a paper cloud
When the sun comes up
And burns the whole thing down
I can only hear your voice when you talk loud

Dear Ol Dad
He’s got the grown up blues
Dear Ol Dad
In his stick-pin suit
Dear Ol Dad
Can you fill those shoes
Dear Ol Dad
Always there for you
