Lyrics Christian Nate parrish - Things my father taught me

He had holes in his jeans but his truck was always clean
He had to roll up his sleeves when he was still just a teen
He said the world don’t owe you a thing
It’s good to work for what you have
Get you backbone of steel
But don’t forget how to feel

These are things my father taught me
These are the things that made me who I am

Be a man of few words,
There’s enough noise in the world
Create some calloused hands
It’s not what you say but how you act
Be kid as long as you can
But come and visit when you’re a man

These are things my father taught me
These are the ways it shaped who I am

He was far too young
when it was time to say goodbye
he always said to me son
Better to be early then to be on time
