Old Man


Old Man

We have butted our heads more times than a few
But that doesn't mean that I don't miss, or didn't love you
I know you wanted me to be a good man
And at this point that's exactly what I am
You raised me like a son, and I love you like a father
As time goes on, that feeling gets stronger
I wish I had more time to prove myself to you
I put a little bit of you into everything I do
I hope you knew it all along
I hope you knew it when you passed on
But if not Old Man, I'm telling you now
And hope when you look down on me it makes you proud
Or up from hell just in case
You could be an angel in either place
