My old dad went a walkin' one day,
Pushing tall weeds
Right outta his way,
My old dad went a walkin' one day,
Hey now, hey now

Corduroy pants
And an old plaid shirt,
Daddy went a walkin'
Just to feel the earth,
Got a little dirty
But that's all right,
Hey now, hey now

Old man crossin' the road,
You've got to let him go,
Old man crossin' the road,
He's feelin' fine

Daddy went a ridin' in his old car,
Took the dog with him
'cause it ain't too far,
Daddy went ridin' in his old car,
Hey now, hey now

Brown leather boots
And an old straw hat,
Daddy's getting wood
With the barnyard cat,
Got a little dirty
But that's all right,
Hey now, hey now

Old man crossin' the road,
You've got to let him go,
Old man crossin' the road,
He's feelin' fine

Mama's waiting
At the top of the hill,
They'll be laughing,
Oh the stories they'll tell...
When he holds her
In his arms again,
They'll be sweethearts
With time on their hands

My old dad went a walkin' one day,
Pushing tall weeds
Right outta his way,
My old dad went a walkin' one day,
Hey now, hey now

Corduroy pants
And an old plaid shirt,
Daddy went a walkin'
Just to feel the earth,
Got a little dirty
But that's all right,
Hey now, hey now

Daddy went a ridin' in his old car,
Took the dog with him
'cause it ain't too far,
Daddy went ridin' in his old car,
Hey now, hey now

Brown leather boots
And an old straw hat,
Daddy's getting wood
With the barnyard cat,
Got a little dirty
But that's all right,
Hey now, hey now
