    Lyrics

    (Vince Gill / Dean Dillon)

    My dad was a man
    With two hard workin' hands
    He always took time out for me
    Well, I'd come home from school
    Load up that canoe
    He'd say, "What's the bet gonna be?"

    Chorus:
    We'd float that boat down old Whippoorwill River
    Catch us a big one or two
    Well, he taught me about life
    And its simple pleasures
    And whatever else that he knew.

    Then I met a girl
    With a head full of curls
    A pure and innocent heart
    Oh, I knew she was the one
    And when weekends would come
    Wild horses couldn't keep us apart.

    Chorus:
    We'd run those ponies down Whippoorwill River
    And I'd steal a sweet kiss or two
    She taught me about love
    And its simple pleasures
    And whatever else that she knew.

    Well, I married that girl
    And we have a song
    And he looks like my daddy used to
    Oh, his mom and I
    Always find time
    To do things that he likes to do.

    Chorus:
    Well, he loves to go fishing on Whippoorwill River
    And ride in his grandad's canoe
    We teach hima bout life
    And its simple pleasures
    And pass down a memory or two.

    Yeah, he loves to go fishing on Whippoorwill River
    And catch him a big one or two
    He's learning about life
    And its simple pleasures
    And making a memory or two.

    Ooh...
