Walk A Little Plainer Daddy

          Walk a little plainer daddy
          Said a little boy so frail,
          I'm following your footsteps and
          I don't want to fail.
          Sometimes your steps are plain
          Sometimes they are hard to see,
          So walk a little plainer Daddy.
          For you are leading me."

          I know that once you walked
          This way many years ago,
          What you did along the way
          I'd really like to know
          For sometimes when I'm tempted
          I don't know what to do
          So walk a little plainer, Daddy,
          For I must follow you.

          Someday when I'm grown up.
          You are like I want to be,
          Then I will have a little boy
          Who will want to follow me
          And I want to lead him right.
          And help him to be true
          So walk a little plainer, Daddy
          For we must follow you.
