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.
