I Still Can't Say Goodbye

This song is by Tommy Emmanuel and appears on the album Endless Road (2004).

When I was young my dad would say
"Come on son let's go out and play!"
Sometimes it seems like yesterday.

Then I'd climb up the closet shelf
When I was all by myself
I'd grab his hat and fix the brim,
Pretending I was him.

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

He always took care of mom and me,
We all cut down a Christmas tree,
He always had some time for me.

Wind blows through the trees,
And the streetlights they still shine bright;
Most things seem the same,
But I miss my dad tonight

I walked by a Salvation Army store
Saw a hat like my daddy wore
I tried it on as I walked in,
I'm still trying to be like him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye
I still can't say goodbye
