Tim McGraw Walk Like A Man Lyrics

In the fights they had he'd cover up his ears
Thought big boys don't cry, fought back all the tears
Mama'd use her make up to hide 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 rundown bar
And swore that he was quittin and then he'd start to cry
And though the boy knew the truth sometimes he'd 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
And 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

The sins of the father are the sins of the son
Crawl before you walk boy, walk before you run
Come on, 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 are callin' your name
Don't you listen to them cause they've got no claim
Temptations may come, that ain't no sin
You get stronger every time that you don't give in

The sins of the father are the sins of the son
You can't undo what has been done
You'll have to retrace his footsteps through the sand
And pray you find the love of a girl and take her by the hand and walk on, walk like a man
