about

The "Measure of A Man" is a song written as a tribute to my father-in-law, Elwood M. Johnson.

lyrics

The Measure of A Man
In Honor of Elwood Martin Johnson

Verse 1
The son of the son of a farmer
Hands strong and rough from hard labor
on the outside a little gruff, and more than a little tough
but inside - a heart pure and tender

Verse 2
When he gave his word, you could count on it                                                                         
Nothing stopped him, when he put his mind to it
but the measure of a man - is more than what he says
cause actions speak louder than words 

Pre-Chorus 
And a promise you make, is a promise you keep 
cause that’s how  you live
when that’s what you  believe
So stand up and do right - the best that you can
And the love that you leave  - that’s the measure of a man
that’s the measure of a man

Verse 3
Well there’s nothing more important than family
Those words are his lasting legacy
What he worked hard to provide
Was more than money could ever buy
This is how you love selflessly

Pre-Chorus 
Cause a promise you make, is a promise you keep 
and that’s how you live
when that’s what you  believe
So stand up and do right - the best that you can
And the love that you leave  - that’s the measure of a man
that’s the measure of a man
