Thank you for Being My Dad - Lyrics

by Jon Barker

A son rarely tells his Father
How he really feels
A handshake or a pat on the back
Is all that he reveals
I’d like to right that wrong
Here in this little song

Thank you for shaping my life
Thank you for teaching me all you can
You are no ordinary man
You make me everything I am

Thank you for taking the time
Thank you for showing me the way
And thank you for being there
When I need you
Thank you for every single day

Now I’ve been blessed with a son of my own
Got my own bedtime stories to tell
If I can raise him half as well
As you raised me
Guess I’ll be doing pretty well

Thank you for your guiding hand
Thank you for making my dreams come true
You’re an extraordinary man
And I hope you’re as proud of me
As I am proud of you

Thank you for giving me life
Thank you for showing me good from bad
I guess I’m only really trying to say
Thank you for being my Dad

Even though the years drift away
I never took the time just to say
I love you, and I always have
And thank you for being my Dad
Thank you for being my Dad
