My Old Man

My dad still walks around in his old ball cap
Worn front in center and never to the side 
He is not afraid to check the map
And has a heart a mile wide 
In the afternoon you can bet on him taking a nap 

Its his old Ford Bronco that he takes pride in
and has always said its ok if you don't win
His soul has a western spirt 
If hes got a dime you know he is willing to share it 

He talk about the old country days 
and the simple country ways
Its always been American Made 
And blue jeans with a worn in fade 

You can count on him to keep his word 
To never double cross or follow the herd 
Morals are at the top of his list 
But there is not a fight he could not settle with his fist 

John deer tractors, four wheelers and bond fires 
Are things of which he never tires 
He talks about the Gift family farm 
And all of its charm 

Its he that keep my world so small 
And helps me up when I fall
Try as I may to find a man  
The bar he has set 
Is a standard Im not sure can be met
