My Best For You (P. Keuler, R. Bassett)
Lyrics
My Best For You c 2006 Richard Trevor Bassett, Peggy Lea Keuler

Verse 1:
They called Dad at 3am, just like the month before
He didn't ask them where or when, just hurried out the door
They finished all my mugshots, wiped the ink from my hands
At twice the legal limit, I could barely stand
Dad finished all my paperwork, and walked me to his jeep
But I fell down, cried in my hands, and could barely even speak
I said Dad, where do you get the strength, to always be there for me
He said, Son, I will always do my best for you, and that I'll guarantee

Chorus:
Because I am your Father
And you are my son
You never had a Mother
So I'm the only one
I share in your troubles
This much is true
No matter what you need me to
I'll do my best for you

Verse 2:
He was sitting up in bed, as his nurse walked out the door
He had had a major stroke, just the month before
I helped him with his meal, and gave his hair a comb
Then I lay my hand upon him and said Dad you're not alone
You raised me up, turned me around, made this boy a man
You stood by me, despite my faults, since my life began
And with tears rolling down my face, I looked him in the eye
And said, Dad, I will do all that I can for you, until our last goodbye

Chorus:
Because you are my Father
And I am your son
You've always been there for me
I love you for all you've done
Let me share in your troubles
Cause this much is true
Whatever you need me to do
I'll do my best for you

Bridge:
Now I have a son
And he asked me one day
Will I always be there
To show him the way


Chorus:
I'm proud to be your Father
And to have you as my son
I'll help you on life's journey
Until my life is done
I'll share in your troubles
And this much is true
Whatever you need me to do
I'll do my best for you
