My Old Man (Bill Coates) video

My father was a good man, I'm proud to be his son,
He always took us places when we were young;
He always had a laugh, a smile for everyone,
There was no one like, like my old man.

In summer we'd go fishing, hunting in the fall,
He always found time for family,
'cause he loved us one and all;
He'd always lend a helping hand whenever he could,
There was no one like, like my old man.

Now Dad has gone and left us and we wonder why,
He's gone with God in heaven way up in the sky;
He was always very friendly and he was loved by all,
There was no one like, like my old man.

~ Interlude ~

Now Mom is still here with us and we all love her so,
Thank god for the marriage over fifty years ago;
We know they loved each other until the very end,
There was no one like, like my old man.

Now my world is different since Dad passed away,
But I have friends and family to help me through the day;
He seemed to be the very best at everything he done,
There was no one like, like my old man.
There was no one like, like my old man.
There was no one like, like my old man.

Bill Coates told GEST he wrote this song for his mother in memory of his father who passed, and he never recorded it.
