      About "That's My Job"

      Lyrics for Conway Twitty - "That's My Job"

      I woke up crying late at night
      When I was very young.
      I had dreamed my father
      Had passed away and gone.

      My world revolved around him
      I couldn't lay there anymore.
      So I made my way down the mirrored hall
      And tapped upon his door.

      And I said "Daddy, I'm so afraid
      How will I go on with you gone that way?
      Don't want to cry anymore
      So may I stay with you?"

      And he said "That's my job,
      That's what I do.
      Everything I do is because of you,
      To keep you safe with me.
      That's my job you see."

      Later we barely got along
      This teenage boy and he.
      Most of the fights it seems
      Were over different dreams,
      We each held for me.

      He wanted knowledge and learning.
      I wanted to fly out west.
      Said, "I could make it out there
      If I just had the fare.
      I got half, will you loan me the rest?"

      And I said "Daddy, I'm so afraid,
      There's no guarantee in the plans
      I've made and if I should fail,
      Who will pay my way back home?"

      And he said "That's my job
      That's what I do.
      Everything I do is because of you
      To keep you safe with me.
      That's my job you see."

      Every person carves his spot
      And fills the hole with light.
      And I pray someday I might
      Light as bright as he.

      Woke up early one bright fall day
      To spread the tragic news.
      After all my travel, I settled down
      Within a mile or two.

      I make my living with words and rhyme
      And all this tragedy
      Should go into my head and out instead
      As bits of poetry.

      But I say "Daddy, I'm so afraid,
      How will I go on with you gone this way?
      How can I come up with a song to say
      I love you?"

      That's my job, That's what I do
      Everything I do is because of you
      To keep you safe with me.
      That's my job you see.
      Everything I do is because of you
      To keep you safe with me.
