You grew angry and old My sisters, your daughters won’t hold on much long While you were sitting in the basement While you were rotting out Did you know that you could call Im not sure if that’s what I wanted after our falling out I guess I could’ve called But you grew angry and old Burried in the basement collecting stuff He purchased on credit remortage the house ManFather what’s wrong ? You grew angry and old My sisters your daughters won’t hold on much long Children do resent their yonder fathers I’ll hold on You seem much stronger then most around you So move on ManFather what’s wrong You grew angry and old Alone ManFather what’s wrong ? You grew angry and old My sisters your daughters We won’t hold that long Children do resent their yonder father You seamed so much different That night I slipped a little further down a hole And all I felt was empty didn’t like the way that I was told That You left way too early Didn’t like the way that I was told that you left way without calling Way too early without warning Man father what’s wrong/ you grew angry and old Your daughters are gone/ left them hanging alone Manfather so strong 30 years have gone/ You spoke a language of Love Left a wordly song/ Your story a mystery told Manfather so strong We won’t hold on that long
