You could catch Tommy every weekend loading his daughters up and taking them to ride their horses.

When I was a baby you would hold me in your arms
I felt the love and tenderness keeping me safe from harm
I would look up into your eyes and all the love I would see
How did I get so lucky you were the dad chosen for me
There is something special about a father’s love
Seems it was sent to me from someplace up above
Our love is everlasting I just wanted you to know
That you’re my special hero.
An even tho your song has ended
your melody will forever linger on.
