The Greatest Man I Never Knew

on #1's

Lyrics


The greatest man I never knew lived just down the hall,
and ev'ry day we said hello but never touched at all.
He was in his paper. I was in my room.
How was I to know he thought I hung the moon?

THE. GREA , . KIDS ARE THE GOVERNMENT
I remember this song about a year after losing my Dad. It still touches me. It's been 22 years. I was 22 when it happened. Time has flown by and I miss my Daddy. Cathie
Sad song to me
This song is such a heart warming song and make u think of every one you miss in this world and the men ya'll never knew.
My dad told me he loved me when I was 16 and I came home drunk , I never told him till then I loved him . That was the greatest gift for a dad ,when he was 14 was set on the highway by his dad , Your on your own,,,,
I li.ke this song

Has to make you think what words your kids would choose to express their relationship with you in song.
Great song by Reba McEntire.

When my Dad moved 3000 miles away, I talked to him every Sunday for years....rig h t to the end...so glad I did!!
AWWW I AM SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT ALL YOUR DADS GOD BLESS YOU ALL
This song makes me think of my Dad. My mother was always the dominate parent not in a bad way but it just really never gave me much of a chance to really talk to Dad. When Mom passed in February of 2000 I finally thought I would get a chance to talk to Dad and learn more about him but sadly he passed in June of that same year. I guess its true what the say about one partner of many years not being able to live without the other. GOD I MISS THEM BOTH!!!!
