Something My Dad Would Do

They were broke down on the highway
Had two little kids in the back seat
I thought about driving on by
But I couldn’t get passed the memory
Of being in the car with my father
A long time ago
When he saw a family in need of help
He pulled off the road
So I did too
It’s something my dad would do

I get my chances now and then
To live life just like him
To help somebody with a heavy load
And get ‘em back on the road
And lend a hand
Do what I can
To be a man the light of the Lord can shine through
It’s just something my dad would do

I met her at the checkout
She was buying for her son near the front line
I gave a thank you smile and started to leave
But the moment took me back in time
To the day in that same old store
In my teenage years
I saw my father pay a stranger’s bill
And left them standing there in tears
So I did too
It’s something my dad would do


I can’t help but wonder
If there’ll come a day
When a child of mine will think of me
And have a reason to say
