Keith Urban - Song for dad

[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0QGJTdl7-0 400 500]

Lately I've been noticing
I say the same things he used to say
And I even find myself acting the very same way
I tap my fingers on the table
To the rhythm in my soul
And I jingle the car keys
When I'm ready to go
When I look in the mirror
He's right there in my eyes
Starin' back at me and I realize

The older I get
The more I can see
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

There were times I thought he was bein'
Just a little bit hard on me
But now I understand he was makin' me
Become the man he knew that I could be
And everything he ever did
He always did with love
And I'm proud today to say I'm his son
When somebody says I hope I get to meet your dad
I just smile and say "you already have"

The older I get
The more I can see
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

He's in my eyes
My heart, my soul
My hands, my pride

And when I feel alone
And I think I can't go on
I hear him sayin' "Son you'll be alright
Everything's gonna be alright"
Yes it is

The older I get
The more I can see
That he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
Oh I hope I see
I hope everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

A little more of my father in me
I hope everyday I see in me
In me
In me
I hope everyday I see

A little more of my father in me

Bucky Covington A Father's Love (The Only Way He Knew How)

For the longest time guess I thought he didn’t give a damn
Hard to read, hard to please, yeah that was my old man
On the day I left for college, it was nothing new
We never had the heart to heart, there was too much to do

He checked the air in my tires, the belts and all the spark plug wires
He said, “when in hell’s the last time you had this oil changed?”
And as I pulled out the drive, he said “be sure to call your mom sometime”
And I didn’t hear it then, but I hear it now,
He was saying I love you…the only way he knew how.

A 120,000 miles, six years down the road
A brand new life and a brand new wife and we’d just bought our first home
When he finally came to visit, I thought he’d be so proud
He never said he liked the place, he just got his tool belt out

And put new locks on the doors, went back and forth to the hardware store
Said ‘come and hold this flashlight,’ as he crawled beneath the sand
These old wires ain’t up to code and that old circuit box is going to overload
And I didn’t hear it then, but I hear it now
He was saying I love you…the only way he knew how

Last Sunday we all gathered for his 65th birthday,
I knew he’d stiffen up but I hugged him anyway,
When it was finally time to say goodbye I knew what was next,
Just like he always does, right before we left…

He checked the air in my tires, the belts and all the spark plug wires
He said, “when in hell’s the last time you had this oil changed?”
And as I pulled out the drive, he said “be sure to call your mom sometime”
And I didn’t hear it then, but I hear it now,
He was saying I love you,
He was saying I love you…the only way he knew how.

"Cryin' For Me (Wayman's Song)"

Got the news on Friday morning
But a tear I couldn't find
You showed me how I am supposed to live
Now you showed me how to die
I was lost till Sunday morning
I woke up to face my fear
While writing you this good bye song I found a tear

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I’d do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin for me

I got up and dialed your number
Your voice came on the line
That old familiar message
I have heard a thousand times
It just said, sorry that I missed you
Leave a message and god bless
I know that you think I am crazy
But I just had to hear your voice I guess

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin for me

Oh

So play your upside down, left handed
Backward bass guitar
Ill see you on the other side superstar

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
Id do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin for me

I'm still cryin
I'm cryin for me
Oh
I'm still cryin

Don't put it on Top..

Are you like me and carry your bikes & luggage on top of your car. Well the Ohio Turnpike Commission is charging you more. If your vehicle or gear on top of your car measures 7 feet 6 inches or taller you are now in a heavier two-axle commercial truck category. This is used instead of weight to determine this category.. This went into effect October 1, 2009. Even if you use EZ-Pass a laser scanner will determine the height of your vehicle and gear. If you cross the state using the Turnpike it will cost you $25.00 now compared to the $15.00 before the change..
Ohio has the only toll road in the country where motorists pay more if something is attached to the top of their vehicle instead of secured on the back.
I suggest not using the Ohio Turnpike.. I know I will not use it anymore, My GPS will now state avoid Toll Roads!!!!
