My Dad wasn’t “a singer”…  He always said that was “his brother’s thing”…
But, occasionally – we’d be riding somewhere – and he’d have this old 8-Track playing…
He’d sing this ONE song to me…
He’s been dead for over 30 years now – and the memory of him singing this song to me is still one of the most potent memories I have of him.
 
Years later – it became my “theme song” to my own kids…
Life always seemed to get in the way…
And now – watching my youngest son with his own kids – I’m hoping and praying that it doesn’t become his “theme” song as well…
