That Kind of Man

I hardly knew my daddy
He left when I was barely old enough to walk
My mama made up stories
Said that he?d be back for me in no time at all
My hero in that picture frame
I had his eyes and his last name
It took me years to understand
I didn?t wanna be that kind of man

Somehow my mama raised me
She said that I drove her crazy just like my old man
I had a will that wouldn?t budge
Slow to listen, quick to judge -- like lightning in a can
Heading nowhere, going fast
Hell-bent on following his path
It took me years to understand
I didn?t have to be that kind of man

Five years ago, I heard a knock at my door
There he stood -- a man whose eyes were just like mine
He tried to speak, fumbled, staring at his feet
And it hit me that he?d missed me my whole life

It?s my turn this morning; I?ve got the baby?s bottle warming
He almost slept the whole night through
His sister calls me in ? tiny apron, big ole grin
She pouring tea-for-two
I?ll always be there for my kids
Won?t miss out like my daddy did
He?s the one who helped me understand
I don?t have to be that kind of man
