Tyler Booth – Hey Dad Lyrics

Hey dad, this city life’s kinda crazy
Sometimes it makes me
Get that bluegrass on my mind
Hey dad, I’m holding on to how you raised me
And that advice you gave me
The day I left that town behind
When you said

Sing what you love, write what you know
Even if no one’s listening
Pay your dues, pay your bills
Pray when you get a minute
These fields and stars, roads and this farm
Will be right where you left it
You said one day you’d see my name in lights
Well, hey dad, one of these days I might prove you right

Hey dad, I know you said to watch my drinking
You know I been drinking
But you taught me where to draw that line
Hey dad, I know you can’t help but worry
But don’t you worry
Your words still echo in my mind
When you said

Sing what you love, write what you know
Even if no one’s listening
Pay your dues, pay your bills
Pray when you get a minute
These fields and stars, roads and this farm
Will be right where you left it
You said one day you’d see my name in lights
Well, hey dad, I hope I can prove you right

Hey dad, I want it bad
I pray this crazy dream comes true
And if it does
It’ll be because of all I learned from you

I’ll be singing what I love, writing what I know
Even if no one’s listening
Paying my dues, paying my bills
Praying when I get a minute
Those fields and stars, roads and that farm
Will be right where I left it
You said one day you’d see my name in lights
Well, hey dad, I hope I can prove you right
Yeah dad, I pray I can prove you right
