Clinton County, Iowa "Deputy To Friend"


Clinton County Sheriff's Office

He looks so handsome, his uniform in green.
He goes to work, his façade to look mean.
A criminal's worst enemy, but my hero, my friend.
Coming to work to deal with zeros again.

9-1-1 dispatches through call after call.
I wonder just how does he handle it all?
Running faster then the perp, it's always a race.
It is so incredible to me how he keeps up this pace.

His shift should be nearing, quitting time due but
some junkie needed a fix...exactly what's new?
He never complains and he never gripes.
He often shares stories about bar room fights.

He wears his badge with honor and a smile of pride.
Deputy Dau is the man we all want on our side.
