Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Album: Tunnel Of Love

I remember how rough your hand felt on mine on my wedding day
And the tears cried on my shoulder I couldn't turn away
Well so much has happened to me that I don't understand
All I can think of is being five years old following behind you at the beach tracing your footprints in the sand
Trying to walk like a man

By Our Lady Of The Roses we lived in the shadow of the elms
I remember ma draggin' me and my sister up the street to the church whenever she heard those wedding bells
Well would they ever look so happy again the handsome groom and his bride
As they stepped into that long black limousine for their mystery ride
Well tonight you step away from me and alone at the alter I stand
And as I watch my bride coming down the aisle I pray for the strength to walk like a man

Well now the years have gone and I've grown from that seed you've sown
But I didn't think there'd be so many steps I'd have to learn on my own
Well I was young and I didn't know what to do
When I saw your best steps stolen away from you
Now I'll do what I can
I'll walk like a man
And I'll keep on walkin'

I wish you would have had a chance to meet her dad. She's everything I could ever imagine and more. You would have loved her too. I'm still learning how to walk. Thank you for everything.
Love Joey

Even though it's about a dad I am dancing to this with my son on his wedding day I've always thought it was so beautiful. He was 4 or 5 when I first heard it, I told him someday We will dance at your wedding to this he was so little now he's a man.

Don't think Bruce could ever write something bad...this is stellar...lost my Dad 6 mos ago and I get a knot in my throat with this and "If I should Fall Behind"

My jersey boy dad is fading fast in his fight with Alzheimer's. Whenever I hear this song I think of my pops. Thanks for that Bruce.

Yep, this song popped up on my iTunes playlist tonight on what would have been my Dad's 86th birthday and had a good cry...
