If you are a fan of Conway Twitty, you probably know his song “That’s My Job”. It is a touching ballad about a father’s love and dedication to his son, from childhood to adulthood. The song was released in 1987 as the third single from his album Borderline, and it reached #6 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.

The song was written by Gary Burr, who said that the lyrics were inspired by his own relationship with his father. He said that everything in the song was true, except for the title, which came from a friend who suggested it as a joke. Burr also said that he cried when he first heard Twitty’s recording of the song, because he captured the emotion so well.

The song has four verses, each describing a different stage of the son’s life and how his father helped him through his troubles. The chorus repeats the father’s words: “That’s my job, that’s what I do / Everything I do is because of you / To keep you safe with me, that’s my job you see”. The song ends with the son visiting his father’s grave and saying the same words to him.

The song is a classic example of Twitty’s ability to convey deep feelings with his voice and his choice of songs. It is also a tribute to all the fathers who work hard and sacrifice for their children. The song has been covered by other artists, such as Travis Tritt and Tyler Wood, and it remains one of Twitty’s most beloved songs.
