I Know Who He Is By William Michael Morgan

Please Doc put away your chart
You can save your heart to heart
I’ve got some memories and a deck of cards
That could use some shuffling through

Looks like he’s still wide awake
Looks like he still won’t take
Those pills you put there yesterday
Huh, Just stubborn as a mule

I don’t want to hear “He’s going downhill”
What about “Thank God he’s around still”?
Looking right through me is not at all the way I see him
I don’t mind at all remembering for him

He doesn’t have to get why I adore him
He don’t have to know me I know who he is
My Dad, my coach, my friend
The voice behind “Boy where the hell you been”

The lover of my mamma through thick and thin
The best man I’ve ever known
All time quarterback when us kids were in a bind
Cheek full of Red Man in a duck blind

And no offense, Doc
But if you don’t mind, I’d like some time alone
I don’t want to hear “He’s going downhill”
What about “Thank God he’s around still”?

Looking right through me is not at all the way I see him
I don’t mind at all remembering for him
He doesn’t have to get why I adore him
He don’t have to know me, I know who he is

Full of pride, baby boy on his knee there
Full of life with a beer and a beach chair
Ah, he’s a fixture In my head full of pictures
I don’t mind at all remembering for him

He doesn’t have to get why I adore him
He don’t have to know me I know who he is
Oh, I know who he is
Yeah, I love who he is

Yeah, I love, I love, I love who he is

Beautiful song! My Deaf heart aches for my adult sons and daughter-in-law. Praying for peace and miracles for all in the days to come.
