Lyrics: 

The Post Where I Carved Your Name

Looking back now on yesterday
When summer times were warm and true
My pride and joy, my buckaroo
He had only reached his year two

I heard him ask, could he help me
Put the fence post into the ground
So I placed his hands on the post
And then I carved his name around

(Instrumental)

I carved your name with all my love
At the big ranch where we called home
And you will live here in my heart
No matter the trail you ride on

If you wonder about my love
And if it will always remain
Remember small hands in those gloves
And the post where I carved your name

(Instrumental)

Now son, my days they are numbered
I know that my life will soon end
If I recall all our summers
When would the best of all begin

Never wonder about my love
My son, it will always remain
Just recall small hands in those gloves
And the post where I carved your name

So sweet. Wonderful snippet of time captured perfectly to express the love of a father for his son.

Perfect parental love song - wonderful nostalgia and images. Love the title - says so much and captures the sentiment so well.
