Happy Birthday Dad.


My Dad turns seventy nine today,

Born in nineteen twenty four,

He seen some changes along the way

and he figures to see some more.


Raised on a farm just west of town,

He was drawn to the cowboy life,

Until he settled down to build a place of his own,

a home for five kids and a wife.


Now all five children are ranchers and farmers of course,

Spread from Osoyoos to the Chilcotin Range,

now and then, the "Old Man" still rides a good horse,

'cause maybe, some things aint meant to change.
