Title: Man Of Many Hats
(c) All Rights Reserved, 08/18/2009

Man Of Many Hats

V1)
Daddy was a hard working man, the best of all
A collection of the jobs and things he loved
Hanging on the special hat rack shining like a star
Memories of him are hats, still hanging on my wall

V2)
As I touch, his old fishing hat, it has a great story
and that old rugged hat, he wore when he was plowing
His special ole' dented helment, from that crazy war
Dad's old football helmet, when he was in his glory

Chorus)
Special memories kept in a plastic bag
the smell of his best cologne and his hair
Still lingers on all, daddy's special hats
The hats Daddy wore to Church on Sunday
and the things Dad loved along life's way
Daddy was a man of many hats, many hats

Bridge)
Daddy was a man of many hats one for each and every occasion
I even kept the special hat he wore to my high school graduation
He was a man of many hats, he worked hard and loved his family
Special hats are hanging there on my wall, for all the world to see

Repeat Chorus)

Tag)
Along the hallway, hanging on my wall
are hats, and memories of a special man
Daddy was a man of many hats, many hats
Treasured hats, and they are loved by all

PS, all advice and suggestions for music are appreciated.
There is a second version of this lyric, that was written
by Gary E. Andrews as a co-write with me..I will post it
later..Thanks..

Man Of Many Hats

Daddy was a man of many hats
For whatever the occasion might call
They're our treasured memories
Hanging in the hall
There's his favorite fishing hat
Where he hung it up last Fall
To hear him tell the story
He nearly caught them all
You know the tale grew tall
Daddy was a Man Of Many Hats

Daddy, was a man of many hats
The right one for whenever he went out
Each one of us can tell you
What they're all about
There's the broad-brimmed floppy hat
He wore when he had to plow
We use to ride the tractor
I'd love to ride it now
To see his sunny face
Now the plowing is hired out
Daddy was a Man Of many Hats

Bridge)
Blue hats and black hats
A cowboy hat with feathers
A baseball cap he'd throw on the ground
The one made out of leather
Daddy was A Man Of Many Hats

I smell his best cologne
The stuff he put on his hair
The hat he wore to church on Sunday
I think I'll leave it hanging there
The hat he brought home from the war
It's worn and torn to rags
Now it's time to take them down
To store in plastic bags
We'll keep them in a special place
We'll hold them near our hearts
Daddy was a Man Of Many Hats

PS, all constructive comments are appreciated.

Hi Fran

I loved reading them, both beautifully written some very nice sentiments in them.
Second one I think sounds better as it opens up the story a little more.
One suggestion of something I'd change is the second version, second line, second verse. Replace "whenever" with "wherever" it would relate better I feel.

Best
Roger


I'm a lyricist with original lyrics available for all recording purposes, open to collaboration so if interested please see my website.

Hi Roger, thank you for the comments. I will consider the
change. I am honored that you read both versions. I agree
about the second version being the best.Thanks again..

PS, the lines about the plastic bag with my dad's
Sunday Fedora Hat, with his "Hair and English leather"
smell still on it is true. smile

Speak soon,
Fran Williams

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
