James Griffin – Father & Son lyrics

When I was a child
I was free runnin wild
And my mother said
Look what your father's done
You will not obey
Won't do nothin' I say
Then she shook her head
I was my father's son

Father and son
We were a lot like each other
Father and son
You know the blood is thicker than water

Night after night
My parents would tight
Till my mother said
Hush up you'll wake the kid
And then came the day when he just west away
And I sat and I cried
And wondered why he did

Father and son
We couldn't be together
Father and son
You know the blood is thicker than water

_____ years later
But as I go wanderin' on
I still believe he'll come along
And we could talk as if nothin' were wrong
Of things that we done
Only to talk to him father to son
