"Welcome To Earth (Pollywog) (Cowboy Arms Sessions)"

Hello, my son
Welcome to earth
You may not be my last
But you'll always be my first
Wish I'd done this ten years ago
But how could I know
How could I know
That the answer was so easy
I've been told you measure a man
By how much he loves
When I hold you
I treasure each moment I spend
On this earth, under heaven above
Grandfather always said God's a fisherman
And now I know the reason why

And if some times daddy has to go away
Well please don't think it means I don't love you
Oh, how I wish I could be there everyday
'Cause when I'm gone it makes me so sad and blue
And holding you is the greatest love I've ever known
When I get home it breaks my heart
Seeing how much you've grown all on your own

Oh, hearing you cry makes me cry
It made me cry
Hearing me cry
A thousand miles away
Every cry
(Greatest love I've ever known)
(Ever known)
