I Understood my Father’s Love

Rockport, Maine

Charles Brown recounts a special gift given to him by his father.

Lyrics

He’d sit in his big chair, his arms across his chest
A belt hanging on a hook
He was not affectionate, he was stern
I understood my father’s love

If there was a piano in a church or a store
He’d always know where I was
He was not affectionate, he was stern
I understood my father’s love

I came home one day everyone’s smiling at me
My mother said your father’s got something for you
The look on his face set my mind at ease
There behind the door was a piano
Just for me

Now you can practice your song, that’s what I got it for
I played the only song I knew
He was not affectionate, he never once complained
I understood my father’s love

He was not affectionate, he was stern
Not affectionate, he never once complained
He was not affectionate, a piano just for me
I understood my father’s love
