I’m Going To Follow You

I’m Going To Follow You

 

Walk a little plainer, Daddy,

Said a little boy so frail,

For I’m following in your footsteps,

And I don’t want to fail.

Sometimes your steps are very plain,

Sometimes they’re hard to see,

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

For you are leading me.

I know that you once walked this way

Many, many years ago,

And what you did along the way

I’d really like to know.

For sometimes when I’m tempted,

I don’t know what to do,

So walk a little plainer, Daddy;

You know I’m following you.

Someday when I’m grown up,

You are like I want to be;

Then I will have a little boy

Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead him right

And help him to be true,

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

I’m going to follow you.
