Walk Like A Man

This song is by Tim McGraw and appears on the album Live Like You Were Dying (2004).

Oh man the fights they had
He'd cover up his ears
He thought "good boys don't cry"
He fought back all the tears
Mama'd use her makeup
For the bruises on her face
In the morning they'd pretend
That there'd never ever
Been a trace

His old man woke him up
To help him find the car
Take the bus uptown
Outside some run down bar
Swore that he was quitting
And then he'd start to cry
And though the boy knew the truth
Sometimes he's still believe that lie

When the sins of the father
Are the sins of the son
All you do is crawl when
You wanna run
But God gave boys their mamas
'Cause they always see their promise
And they help them understand
How to walk like a man, walk like a man

They moved a lot of places
They never settled down
It got pretty old being the new kid in town
He'd always tell his friends "My daddy's sick today"
Said he'd be rich if he had a nickel every time
He heard his mama say

When the sins of the father
Are the sins of the son
Gotta crawl before you walk boy
Walk before you run
Come on now stand up straight
I'm proud of you
Take my hand, I know you can
Walk like a man, walk like a man

Your daddy's demons will call your name
Don't you liisten 'cause they got no claim
Temptation may come that ain't no sin
You get stronger every time that you don't give in
