How Do You Measure A Man?

from by Dusty Wright

about

Written while my father was in hospice and finished after he passed away. I'd been summoned to Florida by my mother and brother after my father had another stroke. I had to make the decision for our family to move him into hospice. The lyrics are straight ahead and self-explanatory. David Lee Waters played the beautifully nuanced slide guitar and Queen Esther provided background vocals.

lyrics

HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
HOW DO YOU JUDGE HIS LIFE?
HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
WHO DID HE TAKE FOR A WIFE?

BRIDGE

HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
WHO WERE THE SONS THAT HE RAISED?
YEAH, HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
WHO WERE HIS FRIENDS IN THE END?

BRIDGE

SOLO

2nd BRIDGE
WHO CAN JUDGE HIS WORTH?
WHO CAN SET A PRICE?
WHO CAN...?

HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
WHO DID HE HELP ON HIS WAY?
YEAH, HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
MEASURE BY THE LOVE THAT HE GAVE...

BRIDGE & Outro

Measure a man... Measure a man...
Measure a man... Measure a man
