Today is Father’s Day here in the United States. It’s a celebration of dads and all that they do for us. Fathers often get a bad reputation in popular culture and media. Although I don’t have kids, I respect that the job of raising another human being to adulthood isn’t easy.
Unfortunately, there are no great Father’s Day songs I could find that are comparable to the best one for Mother’s Day. I did find one about a troubled relationship between a boy and his father that kind of worked out in the end. It’s written by the great poet Shel Silverstein, and it is sung by the immortal Johnny Cash. Please enjoy.
So, to dads everywhere, have a Happy Father’s Day. I hope you get to do something nice for yourself. Although you might not hear it the other 364 days out of the year, your hard work is appreciated.
