My Father Gave It To Me

My father gave it to me
My father was a good man
God rest his soul
My father was the best father;
But one day he got old
He loved his family
In a kind and gentle way
My father is no longer with us
He gently slipped away.
He gave me something
That I will proudly wear
There is nothing like it
And none can compare
I will wear it with pride
Because I am free
I will wear it with dignity
Because my father gave it to me
  I will keep it polish
And pass it to my son
And he will wear it proudly
Until the day is done
I will do my best to let everyone see
That my father loved and passed it on to me
Many years have come and gone
Since my father slipped away
I hope he is proud of me
Because I wear it proud today
Father I thank you for trusting me with
The most important thing in your life

 I promise to protect it
And always treat it right
Now I have a son father;
And I will do the same
Thank you always father; we
Proudly wear your name
