Between A Father And A Son (Jace Everett)

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" And 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 fishing 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 And my daddy wouldn't [Incomprehensible] I felt lost at sea So, I just kept it simple Took it one day at a time And followed in the foot-steps Of the men that came before me in my life And we're doing just fine 'Cause you learn to throw a baseball How to sail a fishing 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 But that's just how it is Between a father and a son And the circle goes unbroken But there's so much left undone And that's just how it is Oh, that's just how it is Between a father and a son A father and a son Between a father and a son
