I still can't say good-bye
- Chet Atkins

When I was young, my Dad would say Come on Son let's go out and play
Sometimes it seems like yesterday

And I'd climb up the closet shelf When I was all by my-self
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 good-bye

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
Street lights, they still shine bright
Most things are the same
but I miss my Dad to-night

I walked by a Salvation Army store Saw a hat like my daddy wore
Tried it on when I walked in Still trying to be like him

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