My Dad O

Irish Song Lyrics - My Dad OAuthor: Donal O'Shaughnessy
Copyright: 1998

You Watched me Grow
Throughout the years
You saw the sorrow and the tears
Your gentle hand
Showed me the way
To do right from day to day

I tried to bring you pride and joy
With all the love that you employed
Remember still, the times we had
And I will thank the Lord above
You're my Dad

Now that I am grown
I can see and understand
The reasons for your ways
That made me who I am

None can ever know
The joy and pain we shared
This love I have for you
can't be compared

Although you made me who I am
I still can take you by the hand
I see the age around your eyes
they keep your sorrows in diguise

Although in time we both will part
you will keep beating in my heart
Remember still, the times we had
And I will thank the Lord above
You're my Dad
