Walk A Little Plainer Daddy

   Walk a little plainer daddy,
Said the little boy so frail.
   I’m walking in your footsteps,
And I never want to fail.
   Sometimes your steps are very plain,
Sometimes they’re hard to see
   Just walk a little plainer daddy
For you are leading me.

I know that once you walked this way,
   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.
Just walk a little plainer daddy
   For I must follow you.

Someday when I’m all grown up,
   You’re like I want to be.
Then I will have a little boy-
   Who’ll want to follow me.
And I sure want to lead him right,
   And help him to be true.
So walk a little plainer daddy,
   For I must follow you”
