​He's Watching Me

This song is by Al Denson and appears on the album From This Day On (2000).

Back in '63 my little league career had just begun
I had two left feet yet I believed
That I could rise above
I watched the bigger kids
And prayed the coach would put me in
But I sat on the bench
Well, my biggest fan sat in the stands
For each and every game
And though he was blind, he listened for
The coach to call my name
"Please, coach, let me play"

You see my dad, he's watching me
Yes, my dad's so proud of me
Even though my dad can't see
He's watching me
You see my dad, he's watching me
Yes, my dad's so proud of me
Even though my dad can't see
He's watching me

Well the weeks went by
And summertime was almost at an end
It was a special day, I just had to play
May not get this chance again
The coach put me in
And underneath the stars that night
I got my first hit
When I crossed the plate
Tears on my face, I looked up in the stands
I nodded to the empty seat
That used to be my dad's
The coach said "Sorry, son
Your daddy wasn't here to see"
And I said "Yes he was"

I guess you didn't hear the news
My dad, he passed away
And I know Jesus touched his eyes
And for the first time

My dad, he's really watching me
Yes, my dad's so proud of me
Up in heaven dad can see
He's watching me
You see my dad he's watching me
Yes, my dad's so proud of me
Now in heaven dad can see
He's watching me
Up in Heaven daddy sees
He's watching me
Oh, he's watching me
Oh, daddy
