For The Man I've Known - JP Cooper

When I was knee high to a grasshopper
My father said someday you'll be a man

And all the simple things I found to be confusing
I will grow to understand
Like how the songbird sings the morning in so sweetly
Fulfilling part of God's great plan
So I watched my youth unravel as I held on to my papa's hand

Singing hallelujah for the man I've known
Singing hallelujah for the man I've known
And he's teaching me how, how to grow

Now we've seen beauty turn to ashes
But the hard times gave us hearts of gold
And we have kept a youthful spirit
While so many here amongst us have grown old
Just as the evergreen stands strong
Thorough the winter deeply rooted in the land
I have weathered many seasons as I held onto my papa's hand

Singing hallelujah for the man I've known
Singing hallelujah for the man I've known
And he's teaching me how, how to grow

And he's teaching me how, just as the evergreen stands strong
Thorough the winter deeply rooted in the land
I have weathered many seasons as I held onto my papa's hand
