Hero

VERSE
For thirty years he made his way, the best way that he could
There would always be tomorrow, when today was not so good
Times I’ve seen him give it all, to someone who had none
But the Good Lord always blessed him and us, ten fold or more to one

CHORUS
Well I never had a hero; I wasn’t into things like that
But if I’d ever had a hero-oh-oh
It would’ve been my Dad

VERSE
He never served in the army, but how he fought to survive
When our world grew dark and stormy, he convinced the sun to shine
I watched him face adversity, until the bitter end
And on the day he went down smiling, I lost my closest friend

CHORUS
Well I never had a hero; I wasn’t into things like that
But if I’d ever had a hero-oh-oh
It would’ve been my Dad

BRIDGE
I’d have to say he was as perfect
As any soul I’ve ever known
What he stood for and believed in
Is every reason I move on

VERSE
There’s a picture on my mirror
When he was young and full of life
Guess I keep it to remind me
He was my hero all— the time
