lyrics

The creases in the elbows of his faded denim shirt
He wore when we went fishing an' I'm wishing I had learned
A little more from you Dad before you went away
I'm lost without you
Cross about you
But I don't know what to say

The winchester that was his Dad's, he brought out of the case
Hold on son with all you got, don't ever be afraid
To stand up tall and know you'll fall and know this is the way
I'm lost without you
Cross about you
But I don't know how to change

He said hold your head up higher,
Know just who you are
Shoot straight and check your sights son
Aim a little far
Learn to love a woman
The rest will come with time
Be the man I couldn't be
And live a worthy life

The old truck parked out front at nights
With the paint chipping away
The bench seat where I sat with him, in awe of all he'd say
I'd take another drive with you, anywhere at all
I'm lost without you
Cross about you
But I don't know who to call

He said hold your head up higher,
Know just who you are
Shoot straight and check your sights son
Aim a little far
Learn to love a woman
The rest will come with time
Be the man I couldn't be
And live a worthy life

He took my hand and said to me
With pride there in his eyes
“I love you son, God bless you son”
From the bed where he would die
I didn't want to say goodbye
I could hardly find the words
I'm lost without you
Cross about you
Still every day it hurts

He said hold your head up higher,
Know just who you are
Shoot straight and check your sights son
Aim a little far
Come to know your Maker
The rest you'll find in time
Be the man I couldn't be
Live a worthy life

He said hold your head up higher,
Know just who you are
Shoot straight and check your sights son
Aim a little far
Learn to love a woman
The rest will come with time
Be the man I couldn't be
Be the man I couldn't be
Be the man I couldn't be
And live a worthy life
