Sometimes I wonder if you’re watching
When I am up to something bad
And I wonder if you’d forgive me
Me being the only son you had

Sometimes I wonder if you love me
Through all the ugly things I do
Because, despite my faults and failings,
I still love you

Father, Father do you wait
There beside the pearly gate
With your handsome smile and your Camel straight
Burning in your fingers

We made a good team, didn’t we
Winding around those mountain roads
Dodging traffic light and weigh scales
Hauling those wide loads

And you, you always acted proud of me
When everything I did was wrong
I wish that I had half your courage
Wish I was half as strong

Father, Father do you wait
There beside the pearly gate
With your handsome smile and your Camel straight
Burning in your fingers

I wish my children could have know you
Not just the flowers on your grave
Wish I could trade you for your legend
You would have blown them away

Father, Father do you wait
There beside the pearly gate
With your handsome smile and your Camel straight
Burning in your fingers
