SONG LYRICS

My daddy said on fathers day a year before he died
that he had lived a full life having kids made life worth wild
he said that your mother was the best thing he could have had
but not being who he once was made his life sad

he said i’m ready to go now i’m tired can’t you see
i’m of fighting for who I used to be
I’m ready to rest now I’ve done all I can do
don’t worry ‘ll still be here watching over you

We were sitting on the back porch about three years ago
I came out and asked him are you ready to go
he said yes I am you know that I believe
I just wanted to make sure you were ready to leave

he said i’m ready to go now
I’m tired can’t you see
I’m tired of fighting for who I used to be
I’m ready to rest now I’ve done all I can do
don’t worry I’ll still be here watching over you

I said you know I don’t fear dying
I fear dying alone
I want to know you’ll be there
when its time for me to go
and that you’ll be in heaven where life is so unreal
where I can give you a hug and love I can feel
I know that your ready and tired I can see
but I know that you’ll be with me when your soul is set free
there won’t be a day that passes that I won’t think of you
when your daddys little girl there s no love thats more true
he said I’m ready to go now I;m tired can’t you see
I’,m tired of fighting for who I used to be
I’m ready to rest now I’ve done all I can do
don’t worry I’ll still be here
he said I’m ready to go now I;m tired can’t you see
I’,m tired of fighting for who I used to be
I’m ready to rest now I’ve done all I can do
don’t worry I’ll still be here watching over you
watching over you
