Lyrics

I Hold My Father’s Hand Now (Joe Leone)

I hold my father’s hand now
To help him get along,
It’s really no big deal
Sometimes we sing a song
It was he who held my hand
Many years ago,
I knew that I was safe then
As he’d never let it go
I hold my father’s hand now
To show him that I care,
It’s really no big deal
Even if people stare
He used to call me Joey
Or son or pal or buddy,
One thing I knew for sure
I was always safe with daddy
I hold my father’s hand now
And as far as I can see,
It’s really no big deal
It’s still just him and me
Things dad once found easy
Might now seem like a chore,
But the people he has always loved
Will simply love him more
I hold my father’s hand now
And take comfort doing so,
For when his hand’s in mine
I don’t have to let it go.
