WALK A LITTLE PLAINER, DADDY

 

WALK A LITTLE PLAINER, DADDY

 

 

Walk a little plainer, Daddy,

said a little boy so frail.

I'm following in your footsteps,

and I don't want to fail.

Sometimes your steps are very plain,

sometimes they are hard to see.

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

for you are leading me.

I know that once you walked this way

many years ago,

and what you did along the way,

I'd really like to know.

For sometimes when I am tempted,

I don't know what to do.

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

for I must follow you.

Someday when I'm grown up,

you are like I want to be.

Then I will have a little boy,

who will want to follow me.

And I would want to lead him right,

and help him to be true.

So walk a little plainer, Daddy.

for we must follow you.
