We gathered with the lawyer for the reading of the will
Mama sat there quietly between all of us kids
Then he opened up the papers
And my father's words were read

You could have heard a pin drop
When we heard the things he said
To all my loving family I leave this old house
Just split up all the money and pass it all around

But now that that's all settled and it's all said and done
Here's a few things that I'll leave with each and everyone To the boys I leave the family name, the honesty and pride
To both my precious girls, I leave a million lullabies

Sing them to your children and let them know you care
And take what strength I gave to you and be patient, kind and fair
To all I leave undying love, let no one shed a tear
'Cause I was the luckiest man on earth in the time that I was here

And finally to mother who's love was ever true
The greatest a man can give, I leave my heart to you
We all just kind of sat there, not knowing what to say
Then mama looked at all of us and said, "I'd like to pray"

So right there in that office in words so soft and still
We all swore that we'd honor the things in Daddy's will
