Tell My Father

Fatherhood is so underrated these days. For some, fathers are just sperm donors. For many, fathers are just providers of food, clothing and shelter. For some, fathers mean as much as mothers.

So a toast to fathers! Here's a song on youtube and the lyrics of Tell My Father from the Broadway musical Civil War:

Tell my father that his son
Didn't run, or surrender
That I bore his name with pride
As I tried to remember
You are judged by what you do
While passing through
As I rest 'neath fields of green
Let him lean on your shoulder
Tell him how I spent my youth
So the truth could grow older
Tell my father when you can
I was a man
Tell him we will meet again
Where the angels learn to fly
Tell him we will meet as men
For with honor did I die
Tell him how I wore the Blue
Proud and true through the fire
Tell my father so he'll know
I love him so
Tell him how we wore the blue
Proud and true like he taught us
Tell my father not to cry
Then say goodbye
