Go spread my wings…..tap my feet a bit……to a great big brand new sound. I had no big plan at all ……but I wanted to set sail Knew that home would be right there if I was to fail Told my daddy my big plan much to his dismay Daddy I’m takin 40 west till I hit Californ I A Chorus…… Verse 3: So thank-you for those guided days …they’ve snuck by me like a cat My mind goes back in time somedays and I look at where I’m at I recall the words of wisdom daddy made me not forget Words that saved my life out here with all the people I have met Daddy gets upset sometimes….says out here it ain’t no count….. And I say “dry it up now daddy or I’ll give ya somethin to cry about”…… Bridge: (slow) And thank-you ……for those fishin days Those hot and humid country ……..catfish days Where people stay on one side of the tracks My daddy still says he knows I’ll be back………and I just think to myself ………. BACK TO CHORUS
