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.
