Ja, dit bestaan, en dit sal jou laat lag

Vaders wat baie tyd in die hande het om na hul kinders te kyk, kan uiteindelik baie kyk Teletubbies (Is die program nog aan?), Maar 'n beter idee is om 'n rap -liedjie te skep met al die wonderlike babaspeelgoed.

Tweelingbroers Wax en Herbal T het die hulp van laasgenoemde se seun, Max, ingeroep om 'n paar musiekspeelgoed te speel en heeltemal skatryk te wees. Die daaropvolgende video, "MELK IN MY SUPPY CUP!" bevat skreeusnaakse en heeltemal stukkende lirieke soos: "Melk in my koppie/ rol in my vuurwa/ as my melk vol is/ my ma gaan dit volmaak."

Daar is ook 'n geskreeu oor hoe goed volmelk is: "Moenie vir my 'n mummie skuur nie/ gimme dat heel/ sywaarts in my vragmotor sit/ dit is hoe ek rol." Baie beter as die standaard Dora die ontdekkingsreisiger liedjies. Luister en kyk hieronder, en u kan selfs laai die liedjie af om by u kinders se snitlys te voeg.

Top 20 country -liedjies oor pa

Country -liedjies oor Pa deel 'n algemene draad. Kyk na die Top 20 country -liedjies van Great American Country vir Vadersdag wat 'n heersende waarheid oordra. Om pa te word, is nie noodwendig moeilik nie. Maar om 'n goeie pa te wees - wel, dit is 'n uitdaging.

Pa en Seun Soek Perfekte Kampplek

Justin Scribner se pa, Harry, en sy oupa spandeer tyd/pa om die perfekte kampeerplek te soek.

Ouerskap is 'n ryk aar vir die Amerikaanse en country -liedjieskrywers om te tik, en met Vadersdag op hande, is dit 'n ideale tyd om 'n paar van die beste liedjies wat handel oor goeie pa te lees. Sommige van u gunstelinge ontbreek moontlik. U kan byvoorbeeld argumenteer dat die Mac Davis die liedjie "Watching Scotty Grow" hoort hier of dat "I Saw God Today" 'n beter vaderlike inskrywing is George Strait as "Die beste dag." Maar hey, dit is waarvoor lyste bedoel is: 'n gesprek begin. As u nie u gunsteling hier sien nie, laat weet ons wat daar ontbreek!

In geen spesifieke volgorde nie, is hier 20 country -liedjies vir pa's oral:

"Die beste dag," George Strait (2000) - 'n Pa herleef 'n paar van sy gunsteling oomblikke saam met sy seun, van 'n kampeerreis tot die troudag van sy seun, en dink hoe elke dag die beste dag van sy seun se lewe was - en ook hy.

'There Goes My Life', Kenny Chesney (2003) - Vaderskap is nie altyd beplan nie, maar om pa te wees, blyk die beste te wees met 'n jong man wat beplan het om uit sy klein dorpie te kom sodra hy oud genoeg was.

"Gereed, gereed, moenie gaan nie," Billy Ray Cyrus en Miley Cyrus (2007) - 'n Pa moet sy dogter haar vlerke laat sprei en vlieg, al is die enigste ding wat hy wil doen, nog stywer vasbyt.

"Dit sal lank nie so wees nie," Darius Rucker (2008) - 'n Pasgebore baba bring slapelose nagte, maar soos die jare verbygaan, besin 'n pa oor hoe vinnig die tyd met sy kleinding verby gegaan het.

"Just Fishin '," Trace Adkins (2011) - 'n Pa neem sy dogter om te hengel, maar terwyl sy 'n lyn trek, kry hy kosbare herinneringe op wat sy nog nie besef dat daar gemaak word nie.

"Liefde sonder einde, Amen," George Strait (1990) - Die vader/seun -verhouding word gereeld deur die kerk gebruik om God te verduidelik. George maak hierdie sinspeelings hier en beeld pa - en die man bo - uit as iemand wat streng, liefdevol en uiteindelik vergewensgesind is.

"Dit is my werk," Conway Twitty (1987) - Pa as beskermer, Pa as finansier, Pa as inspirasie uit die graf. Dit klink swaar, en dit is. Pragtig so, metVince Gill oor ondersteunende koor.

"Drive (For Daddy Gene)," Alan Jackson (2002) - As u pa baie tyd onder die enjinkap van die motor in die oprit deurgebring het, dan het Alan waarskynlik die spyker op die kop vir u geslaan. Daar is baie motor- en bootonderdele in die liedjie, maar dit is net 'n voertuig om te wys hoe pa u reg bestuur het.

"Ek is reeds daar," Lonestar (2001) - U kan die trane in hoor Richie McDonaldSe stem terwyl hy deur hierdie langafstandoproep huis toe kom.

"My voorstoep kyk in," Lonestar (2003) - Nog steeds die enigste land wat ooit na 'n sopie beker verwys is. Glo dit of nie, daar was baie nie-ouers wat moes rondvra toe die liedjie uitkom om uit te vind wat dit eintlik is.

"Maak hierdie geweer skoon (Come In In Boy)," Rodney Atkins (2007) - As elke pa so indrukwekkend was soos die pa in hierdie liedjie, sou tienermeisies waarskynlik baie minder afsprake kry. Ja, hy is goedhartig. Nee, u wil nie uitvind of hy regtig die sneller sou trek nie.

"Watching You," Rodney Atkins (2006) - Waarskynlik die twee grootste vrese om 'n ouer te wees: 1) Kan u die klein boetie bekostig? 2) Soos Rodney in hierdie liedjie opmerk, word u eintlik 'n rolmodel vir die kinders. Is iemand regtig gekwalifiseerd vir die werk?

"My dogtertjie," Tim McGraw (2006) - Die meeste pa's is suiers vir hul dogters. En Tim het drie van hulle. Wonder waar hy moontlik die inspirasie vir hierdie sentimentele liedjie gekry het ...

'U gaan dit mis,' het Trace Adkins (2007) - Die lirieke wankel tussen die standpunte van ma en pa, maar met Trace se groot, bloeiende stem het dit duidelik 'n vaderlike toon. Dit is 'n wonderlike liedjie, maar die woorde word vermors op diegene wat dit die nodigste het. Teen die tyd dat baie mense agtergekom het Pa het reg, het hulle reeds die tydperk in die lewe verloor wat hulle moes geniet het.

'Family Man', Craig Campbell (2010) - Snaaks hoe kinders almal wil grootword, net om volwassenheid te vind, is moeiliker as wat dit lyk. Craig stel dit in perspektief as 'n pa wat handearbeid doen vir 'n slegte salaris, en elke dollar strek. Wat motiveer iemand om so 'n lewe te lei? 'Dit is familie, man.' En hy sing asof hy dit bedoel.

"Daddy's Hands," Holly Dunn (1986) - Holly het 'n Grammy -benoeming gekry vir die skryf van 'n lied wat eerbied toon vir Pappa se hande. Hulle het liefde en die daaglikse brood van die gesin afgelewer, hoewel die refrein behendig erken dat hulle ook dissiplinêre swatte aan die agterkant gelewer het. Hier is 'n weergawe wat ons op YouTube gevind het waar Holly die liedjie mee sing Dolly Parton. Pragtige harmonieë!

"Enigiets soos ek," Brad Paisley (2010) - "Ek hoop as jy groot is, het jy 'n seun net soos jy, sodat jy weet hoe dit is!" Dit is goed dat Brad se ma dit een of twee keer gesê het toe hy 'n kind was. En met 'Anything Like Me' beland hy sentimenteel oor die vooruitsig.

"Hy hoef nie te wees nie," Brad Paisley (1999) - Pa's hoef nie biologies te wees nie. Soveel stigma as wat dit vir sommige kinders lyk, eintlik 'n aangenome pa kies sy kinders. Dit is nogal spesiaal. En so is hierdie lied. Huil is nie nodig nie, maar dit word aangemoedig.

"Die grootste mens wat ek nooit geken het nie," Reba McEntire (1992) - Daar is 'n hele generasie pa's wat grootgemaak is om te glo dat hulle nie vir hul kinders moet sê dat hulle van hulle hou nie. Baie van hulle het besef dat hulle misloop. Sommige het hul kinders gelos om tussen die reëls te lees.

"'N Seun met die naam Sue", Johnny Cash (1969) - Jy weet hoe Montgomery Gentry "Met my ou man geslaan" in "My Town"? Cash gee 'n gedetailleerde beskrywing van 'n nog groter pa/seun -geveg met 'n geweer en 'n mes - alles toegedraai met 'n knipoog op die ou end.

Country -liedjies oor Pa deel 'n algemene draad. Kyk na Great 20 Country se top 20 country -liedjies vir Vadersdag wat 'n heersende waarheid oordra. Om pa te word, is nie noodwendig moeilik nie. Maar om 'n goeie pa te wees - wel, dit is 'n uitdaging.

Pa en Seun Soek Perfekte Kampplek

Justin Scribner se pa, Harry, en sy oupa spandeer 'n bietjie tyd tussen vader en seun op soek na die perfekte kampeerplek.

Ouerskap is 'n ryk aar vir die Amerikaanse en country -liedjieskrywers om te tik, en met Vadersdag op hande, is dit 'n ideale tyd om 'n paar van die beste liedjies wat handel oor goeie pa te lees. Sommige van u gunstelinge ontbreek moontlik. U kan byvoorbeeld argumenteer dat die Mac Davis die liedjie "Watching Scotty Grow" hoort hier of dat "I Saw God Today" 'n beter vaderlike inskrywing is George Straat as "Die beste dag." Maar hey, dit is waarvoor lyste bedoel is: 'n gesprek begin. As u nie u gunsteling hier sien nie, laat weet ons wat daar ontbreek!

In geen spesifieke volgorde nie, is hier 20 country -liedjies vir pa's oral:

"Die beste dag," George Strait (2000) - 'n Pa herleef 'n paar van sy gunsteling oomblikke saam met sy seun, van 'n kampeerreis tot die troudag van sy seun, en dink hoe elke dag die beste dag van sy seun se lewe was - en ook hy.

'There Goes My Life', Kenny Chesney (2003) - Vaderskap is nie altyd beplan nie, maar om pa te wees, blyk die beste te wees met 'n jong man wat beplan het om uit sy klein dorpie te kom sodra hy oud genoeg was.

"Gereed, gereed, moenie gaan nie," Billy Ray Cyrus en Miley Cyrus (2007) - 'n Pa moet sy dogter haar vlerke laat sprei en vlieg, al is die enigste ding wat hy wil doen, nog stywer vasbyt.

"Dit sal lank nie so wees nie," Darius Rucker (2008) 'N Pasgebore baba bring slapelose nagte, maar soos die jare verbygaan, besin 'n pa oor hoe vinnig die tyd met sy kleinding verby gegaan het.

"Just Fishin '," Trace Adkins (2011) - 'n Pa neem sy dogter om te hengel, maar terwyl sy 'n lyn trek, kry hy kosbare herinneringe op wat sy nog nie besef dat daar gemaak word nie.

"Liefde sonder einde, Amen," George Strait (1990) - Die vader/seun -verhouding word gereeld deur die kerk gebruik om God te verduidelik. George maak hierdie sinspeelings hier en beeld pa - en die ou bo - uit as iemand wat streng, liefdevol en uiteindelik vergewensgesind is.

"Dit is my werk," Conway Twitty (1987) - Pa as beskermer, Pa as finansier, Pa as inspirasie uit die graf. Dit klink swaar, en dit is. Pragtig so, metVince Gill oor ondersteunende koor.

"Drive (For Daddy Gene)," Alan Jackson (2002) - As u pa baie tyd onder die enjinkap van die motor in die oprit deurgebring het, dan het Alan waarskynlik die spyker op die kop vir u geslaan. Daar is baie motor- en bootonderdele in die liedjie, maar dit is net 'n voertuig om te wys hoe pa jou reg bestuur het.

"Ek is reeds daar," Lonestar (2001) - U kan die trane hoor inkom Richie McDonaldSe stem terwyl hy deur hierdie langafstandoproep huis toe kom.

"My voorstoep kyk in," Lonestar (2003) - Nog steeds die enigste land wat ooit na 'n sopie beker verwys is. Glo dit of nie, daar was baie nie-ouers wat moes rondvra toe die liedjie uitkom om uit te vind wat dit eintlik is.

"Maak hierdie geweer skoon (Come In In Boy)," Rodney Atkins (2007) - As elke pa so indrukwekkend was soos die pa in hierdie liedjie, sou tienermeisies waarskynlik baie minder afsprake kry. Ja, hy is goedhartig. Nee, u wil nie uitvind of hy regtig die sneller sou trek nie.

"Watching You," Rodney Atkins (2006) - Waarskynlik die twee grootste vrese om 'n ouer te wees: 1) Kan u die klein boelie bekostig? 2) Soos Rodney in hierdie liedjie opmerk, word u eintlik 'n rolmodel vir die kinders. Is iemand regtig gekwalifiseerd vir die werk?

"My dogtertjie," Tim McGraw (2006) - Die meeste pa's is suiers vir hul dogters. En Tim het drie van hulle. Wonder waar hy moontlik die inspirasie vir hierdie sentimentele liedjie gekry het ...

'U gaan dit mis,' het Trace Adkins (2007) - Die lirieke wankel tussen die standpunte van ma en pa, maar met Trace se groot, bloeiende stem het dit duidelik 'n vaderlike toon. Dit is 'n wonderlike liedjie, maar die woorde word vermors op diegene wat dit die nodigste het. Teen die tyd dat baie mense agtergekom het Pa het reg, het hulle reeds die tydperk in die lewe verloor wat hulle moes geniet het.

'Family Man', Craig Campbell (2010) - Snaaks hoe kinders almal wil grootword, net om volwassenheid te vind, is moeiliker as wat dit lyk. Craig stel dit in perspektief as 'n pa wat handearbeid doen vir 'n slegte salaris, en elke dollar strek. Wat motiveer iemand om so 'n lewe te lei? 'Dit is familie, man.' En hy sing asof hy dit bedoel.

"Daddy's Hands," Holly Dunn (1986) - Holly het 'n Grammy -benoeming gekry vir die skryf van 'n lied wat eerbied toon vir Pappa se hande. They delivered love and the family’s daily bread, though the chorus deftly acknowledges they delivered disciplinary swats on the backside, too. Here’s a version we found on YouTube with Holly singing the song with Dolly Parton. Beautiful harmonies!

“Anything Like Me,” Brad Paisley (2010) – “I hope when you grow up, you have a son just like you, so you know what it’s like!” It’s a good bet Brad’s mom said that once or twice when he was a kid. And, with “Anything Like Me,” he ends up sentimental about the prospect.

“He Didn’t Have To Be,” Brad Paisley (1999) – Dads don’t have to be biological. As much of a stigma as it seems to have for some kids, an adopted dad actually kies his children. That’s pretty special. And so is this song. Crying isn’t required, but it is encouraged.

“The Greatest Man I Never Knew,” Reba McEntire (1992) – There’s a whole generation of dads who were raised to believe they shouldn’t tell their kids they love them. A lot of them came to realize they were missing out. Some left their children to read between the lines.

“A Boy Named Sue,” Johnny Cash (1969) – You know how Montgomery Gentry “came to blows with my old man” in “My Town”? Cash gives a detailed description of an even bigger father/son fight that involves a gun and a knife – all wrapped up with a wink in the end.


Top 20 Country Songs About Dad

Country songs about Dad share a common thread. Take a look at Great American Country's Top 20 country songs for Father's Day that convey a prevailing truth. Becoming a father isn’t necessarily difficult. But being a good dad – well, that is a challenge.

Father and Son Look for Perfect Campsite

Justin Scribner's dad, Harry, and his grandfather spend some father/son time looking for the perfect camping spot.

Parenthood is a rich vein for Americana and country songwriters to tap, and, with Father’s Day upon us, it’s a perfect time to run through some of the best songs that deal with good ol’ dad. Some of your favorites might be missing. You could argue, for example, that the Mac Davis song “Watching Scotty Grow” belongs here or that “I Saw God Today” is a better fatherly entry from George Strait than “The Best Day.” But hey, that’s what lists are for: starting up a conversation. If you don’t see your favorite on here, let us know what’s missing!

In no particular order, here are 20 country songs for dads everywhere:

“The Best Day,” George Strait (2000) – A father relives some of his favorite moments with his son, from a camping trip to his son’s wedding day, thinking how each day was the best day of his son’s life – and his, too.

“There Goes My Life,” Kenny Chesney (2003) – Fatherhood isn’t always planned, but being a father turns out to be the best thing that happens to a young man who had planned to get out of his small town as soon as he was old enough.

“Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” Billy Ray Cyrus & Miley Cyrus (2007) – A father has to let his daughter spread her wings and fly, even if the only thing he wants to do is hold on even tighter.

“It Won’t Be Like This For Long,” Darius Rucker (2008) – A newborn baby brings sleepless nights, but as the years pass, a father reflects on just how quickly time went by with his little one.

“Just Fishin’,” Trace Adkins (2011) – A father takes his daughter fishing, but while she’s casting a line, he’s soaking up precious memories she doesn’t yet realize are being made.

“Love Without End, Amen,” George Strait (1990) – The father/son relationship is often used by the church to explain God. George makes those allusions here, portraying Dad – and the guy upstairs – as someone who’s strict, loving and ultimately forgiving.

“That’s My Job,” Conway Twitty (1987) – Dad as protector, Dad as financier, Dad as inspiration from the grave. It sounds heavy, and it is. Beautifully so, withVince Gill on supporting vocals.

“Drive (For Daddy Gene),” Alan Jackson (2002) – If your dad spent a lot of time under the hood of the car in the driveway, then Alan likely hit the nail on the head for you. There are plenty of car and boat parts in the song, but they’re just a vehicle to show how Dad steered you right.

“I’m Already There,” Lonestar (2001) – You can hear the teardrops in Richie McDonald’s voice as he makes his way through this long-distance call home.

“My Front Porch Lookin’ In,” Lonestar (2003) – Still the only country hit ever to reference a sippy cup. Believe it or not, there were plenty of non-parents who had to ask around when the song came out to find out what the heck that was.

“Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy),” Rodney Atkins (2007) – If every father was as imposing as the dad in this song, teen girls would likely get a lot fewer dates. Yes, he’s good-natured. No, you don’t wanna find out if he’d really pull the trigger.

“Watching You,” Rodney Atkins (2006) – Probably the two biggest fears about being a parent: 1) Can you afford the little bugger? 2) As Rodney notes in this song, you actually become a role model to the kids. Is anyone really qualified for that job?

“My Little Girl,” Tim McGraw (2006) – Most dads are suckers for their daughters. And Tim’s got three of ‘em. Wonder where he possibly found the inspiration for this sentimental song…

“You’re Gonna Miss This,” Trace Adkins (2007) – The lyrics vacillate between mom and dad viewpoints, but with Trace’s big, booming voice, it clearly has a fatherly tone. It’s a great song, but the words are probably wasted on those who need them most. By the time many people figure out Dad was right, they’ve already lost the period in life they should have savored.

“Family Man,” Craig Campbell (2010) – Funny how kids all want to grow up, only to find adulthood is harder than it looks. Craig puts it in perspective as a dad doing manual labor for crappy pay, stretching every dollar. What motivates anyone to live that kind of life? “It’s family, man.” And he sings like he means it.

“Daddy’s Hands,” Holly Dunn (1986) – Holly got a Grammy nomination for writing a song that shows reverence for Daddy’s hands. They delivered love and the family’s daily bread, though the chorus deftly acknowledges they delivered disciplinary swats on the backside, too. Here’s a version we found on YouTube with Holly singing the song with Dolly Parton. Beautiful harmonies!

“A Boy Named Sue,” Johnny Cash (1969) – You know how Montgomery Gentry “came to blows with my old man” in “My Town”? Cash gives a detailed description of an even bigger father/son fight that involves a gun and a knife – all wrapped up with a wink in the end.


Top 20 Country Songs About Dad

Country songs about Dad share a common thread. Take a look at Great American Country's Top 20 country songs for Father's Day that convey a prevailing truth. Becoming a father isn’t necessarily difficult. But being a good dad – well, that is a challenge.

Father and Son Look for Perfect Campsite

Justin Scribner's dad, Harry, and his grandfather spend some father/son time looking for the perfect camping spot.

Parenthood is a rich vein for Americana and country songwriters to tap, and, with Father’s Day upon us, it’s a perfect time to run through some of the best songs that deal with good ol’ dad. Some of your favorites might be missing. You could argue, for example, that the Mac Davis song “Watching Scotty Grow” belongs here or that “I Saw God Today” is a better fatherly entry from George Strait than “The Best Day.” But hey, that’s what lists are for: starting up a conversation. If you don’t see your favorite on here, let us know what’s missing!

In no particular order, here are 20 country songs for dads everywhere:

“The Best Day,” George Strait (2000) – A father relives some of his favorite moments with his son, from a camping trip to his son’s wedding day, thinking how each day was the best day of his son’s life – and his, too.

“There Goes My Life,” Kenny Chesney (2003) – Fatherhood isn’t always planned, but being a father turns out to be the best thing that happens to a young man who had planned to get out of his small town as soon as he was old enough.

“Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” Billy Ray Cyrus & Miley Cyrus (2007) – A father has to let his daughter spread her wings and fly, even if the only thing he wants to do is hold on even tighter.

“It Won’t Be Like This For Long,” Darius Rucker (2008) – A newborn baby brings sleepless nights, but as the years pass, a father reflects on just how quickly time went by with his little one.

“Just Fishin’,” Trace Adkins (2011) – A father takes his daughter fishing, but while she’s casting a line, he’s soaking up precious memories she doesn’t yet realize are being made.

“Love Without End, Amen,” George Strait (1990) – The father/son relationship is often used by the church to explain God. George makes those allusions here, portraying Dad – and the guy upstairs – as someone who’s strict, loving and ultimately forgiving.

“That’s My Job,” Conway Twitty (1987) – Dad as protector, Dad as financier, Dad as inspiration from the grave. It sounds heavy, and it is. Beautifully so, withVince Gill on supporting vocals.

“Drive (For Daddy Gene),” Alan Jackson (2002) – If your dad spent a lot of time under the hood of the car in the driveway, then Alan likely hit the nail on the head for you. There are plenty of car and boat parts in the song, but they’re just a vehicle to show how Dad steered you right.

“I’m Already There,” Lonestar (2001) – You can hear the teardrops in Richie McDonald’s voice as he makes his way through this long-distance call home.

“My Front Porch Lookin’ In,” Lonestar (2003) – Still the only country hit ever to reference a sippy cup. Believe it or not, there were plenty of non-parents who had to ask around when the song came out to find out what the heck that was.

“Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy),” Rodney Atkins (2007) – If every father was as imposing as the dad in this song, teen girls would likely get a lot fewer dates. Yes, he’s good-natured. No, you don’t wanna find out if he’d really pull the trigger.

“Watching You,” Rodney Atkins (2006) – Probably the two biggest fears about being a parent: 1) Can you afford the little bugger? 2) As Rodney notes in this song, you actually become a role model to the kids. Is anyone really qualified for that job?

“My Little Girl,” Tim McGraw (2006) – Most dads are suckers for their daughters. And Tim’s got three of ‘em. Wonder where he possibly found the inspiration for this sentimental song…

“You’re Gonna Miss This,” Trace Adkins (2007) – The lyrics vacillate between mom and dad viewpoints, but with Trace’s big, booming voice, it clearly has a fatherly tone. It’s a great song, but the words are probably wasted on those who need them most. By the time many people figure out Dad was right, they’ve already lost the period in life they should have savored.

“Family Man,” Craig Campbell (2010) – Funny how kids all want to grow up, only to find adulthood is harder than it looks. Craig puts it in perspective as a dad doing manual labor for crappy pay, stretching every dollar. What motivates anyone to live that kind of life? “It’s family, man.” And he sings like he means it.

“Daddy’s Hands,” Holly Dunn (1986) – Holly got a Grammy nomination for writing a song that shows reverence for Daddy’s hands. They delivered love and the family’s daily bread, though the chorus deftly acknowledges they delivered disciplinary swats on the backside, too. Here’s a version we found on YouTube with Holly singing the song with Dolly Parton. Beautiful harmonies!

“Anything Like Me,” Brad Paisley (2010) – “I hope when you grow up, you have a son just like you, so you know what it’s like!” It’s a good bet Brad’s mom said that once or twice when he was a kid. And, with “Anything Like Me,” he ends up sentimental about the prospect.

“He Didn’t Have To Be,” Brad Paisley (1999) – Dads don’t have to be biological. As much of a stigma as it seems to have for some kids, an adopted dad actually kies his children. That’s pretty special. And so is this song. Crying isn’t required, but it is encouraged.

“The Greatest Man I Never Knew,” Reba McEntire (1992) – There’s a whole generation of dads who were raised to believe they shouldn’t tell their kids they love them. A lot of them came to realize they were missing out. Some left their children to read between the lines.

“A Boy Named Sue,” Johnny Cash (1969) – You know how Montgomery Gentry “came to blows with my old man” in “My Town”? Cash gives a detailed description of an even bigger father/son fight that involves a gun and a knife – all wrapped up with a wink in the end.
