Lyrics



MY OLD MAN
(1)
HE SERVED HIS COUNTRY BACK IN VIET NAM,
A HERO AMONG MEN.
THEY SENT HIM HOME WITH A CHEST FULL OF MEDALS,
AND TAUGHT HIM HOW TO WALK AGAIN.
HE BUILT HIS HOUSE WITH HIS OWN TWO HANDS
ON A CORNER LOT BOUGHT ON THE VA PLAN,
HE MARRIED MY MAMA, NOW HERE I AM
AND I'M PROUD TO SAY........
(CHORUS)
HE'S A GOOD OLD BOY WHO LOVED "EARNHARDT".
GOT A RED-NECK AND A PURPLE HEART.
HE FLIES OLD GLORY OUT IN HIS FRONT YARD
EACH AND EVERY DAY.
HE LOVES HIS WIFE AND HE'S PROUD OF HIS KIDS.
HE'SWORKING TWO JOBS WITH NO REGRETS.
HE SLEEPS WELL KNOWING THAT HE'S DONE HIS BEST
I'M HIS BIGGEST FAN, YEAH THAT'S MY OLD MAN.
(2)
GROWING UP HE TAUGHT ME RIGHT FROM WRONG
THANK GOD HE TOOK THE TIME
AND WE BOTH KNEW WHERE THAT LEATHER BELT HUNG
IF I GOT OUT OF LINE
HE SAID THERE'S NOTHING LIKE AN HONEST WEEK'S WORK
A GOOD DAY OF FISHING AND SOME SUNDAY CHURCH
IF A NEIGHBOR WAS IN NEED, HE WAS ALWAYS FIRST
TO LEND A HELPING HAND.
(BRIDGE)
I OVERHEARD MY SON AND HIS BEST FRIEND, DREW
BRAGGIN' ON THEIR DADDIES, LIKE YOUNG BOYS DO.
HE'S SO GLAD I'M BACK.
FROM THIS WAR IN IRAQ!
(CHORUS)
YEAH, I'M A GOOD OLD BOY WHO LOVED EARNHARDT.
GOT A RED-NECK AND THIS PURPLE HEART.
I FLY OLD GLORY OUT IN MY FRONT YARD
EACH AND EVERY DAY.
I LOVE MY WIFE AND I'M PROUD OF MY KIDS
I'M WORKING TWO JOBS WITH NO REGRETS.
I SLEEP WELL KNOWING THAT I'VE DONE MY BEST.
SOMEDAY HE'LL UNDERSTAND, JUST HOW PROUD I AM,
I'M HIS OLD MAN.
