What do you say to someone who stood by to help you grow, providing love, strength and support, so you could become the person you are today? What can you say to let him know that he’s the best there is, and that you hope you’ve inherited some of his wisdom and his strength? What words would you say if you ever got the chance? Maybe you just say – I Love You Dad – and hope he understands.

Chorus 1:

Yes, when my dad played the mandolin
You could almost hear the orchestra play
When my dad played the mandolin
A waltz is what he played.

Now I am grown. I live on my own. I’m home on a rainy day I thought of old times so I called up my dad.

Long distance, ’cause I wanted to say “I’ve been thinking about you and those good old songs The ones we used to know.” “Well,” he said, “I put the mandolin down More than a year ago.” Now it’s taken me years to finally know The gift of that rainy day When my father would go and he’d look in his room And bring out his music to play He’d be playin’ a tune so sweet and so free As I sat there and followed along.

Now I give back to him what he gave to me than He gave to me a song.

Chorus 2:

Yes, when my dad played the mandolin
You could almost hear the orchestra play
When my dad played the mandolin
A waltz is what he played.
