Johnny Cash - I Wanted So lyrics

I wanted so to tell that old man, Oh so many things Like the corn was 10 feet tall, that he had planted in the sping And the books he'd ordered came in in the mail just yesterday But he never said a word and life slowly slipped away I wanted so to tell him just how much he meant to me I wanted so to thank him for what he taught me that I could be I wanted him to know, that his grandchildren all were there And that his four year old grandson said "Papa, I said a prayer" I wanted to apologize for always being on the go For never having enough time to talk about the things that he needed so I wanted so to tell him "Pop, your loved ones all are here" But he just lay there with his eyes closed, and I think he shed a knowing tear Yes, I wanted so to tell that old man, Oh so many things Like the corn was 10 feet tall, that he had planted in the sping And the books he'd ordered came in, in the mail just yesterday But he never said a word and life just slowly slipped away
