  • When I was young
    My dad would say
    "c'mon son, let's go out an' play"
    Seems like only yesterday

    When I was all by myself
    I'd climb up the closet shelf
    Find his hat an' fix the brim
    Pretending I was him

    No matter how hard I try
    No matter how many tears I cry
    No matter how many years go by
    I still can't say goodbye

    He took good care
    Of Mom an' me
    We all cut down the Christmas tree
    He always had some time for me

    Wind blows through the trees
    Street-lights, they still shine bright
    Most things are the same
    But I miss my dad tonight

    I walk by the Salvation Army store
    Saw a hat like my daddy wore
    Tried it on an' fixed the brim
    Still tryin' to be like him

    No matter how hard I try
    No matter how many tears I cry
    No matter how many years go by
    I still can't say goodbye, Pa
