A place in the country
Where my dad loved to fish
I remember the first time
I got to go with

I cherish one memory
In all I have done
It happened that Sunday
When I heard the song

I donít know the words
Or the tune I confess
But the moment it played in
Iíll never forget

We didnít even speak
But our feelings were deep
Itís on that dirt road
When I heard George Jones
The best time I had
Was just me and my dad

Now he may not know it
But to this very day
I think of my father
When the corvette song plays

And pray that my children
Will someday think of me
And share in the feeling
Of my memory

When there is know need to speak
And the impacts so deep
That however life goes
Thereís one thing theyíll know
The best time they can have
Is just with you dad

Heart break and no fear

Emotional and personal
How wonderful for you to have such fond memories of your Dad!

In the last stanza, did you mean "no need to speak"?

I too, hope my kids have special memories of me and our times together when I am gone.

God bless you for remembering and appreicating your Dad.
