I had a dad
Big and strong
I turned around
I found my daddy gone

He was the one
Made me what I am today
It's up to me now
My daddy has gone away, that's right

Well, I spoke to the mountain
I listened to the sea
They both told me that fountain
Was the best that you can be

My daddy's hand it growed
Slow to the lickin'
Sonny boy
Grow to whip him

If you see my dad tell him my brothers all gone mad
They're beating on each other
I walked around even tried to call
Got that funny feeling he's not there at all

If you see my dad tell him my brothers all gone mad
They're beating on each other
I walked around even tried to call
What that funny feeling, God is dead, he's not there at all

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

I had a dad
He was big and strong
But when I turned around
I found my daddy gone

Yes, he was the one
Who made me what I am today
It's up to me now
My daddy has gone away, gone away
Gone away, has gone away

Yes, I said I had a, had a dad
I said I had a, had a dad
I said I had, yeah, yeah, yeah
