The Night I Called The Old Man Out Lyrics

Typed by dreamgirl20723@aol.com

The dining room fell silent
I can't believe what i just said
I just told my dad he's full of it
And i watched his face turn red
And i should've said "i'm sorry"
But i matched him shout for shout
I can still hear that screen door slammin'
The night i called him out

Chorus:
He said "son it's gannon hurt me more than it hurts you"
But somehow i couldn't help but have my soubt
'cause i'd seen my older brothers crawl back in the house
Each time they called the old man out


Fist to fist and eye to eye
Standin' toe to toe
He would've let me walk away
But i just would not let it go
Years of my frustration
Had lead me to this night
Now he'll pay for all the times that he's been right

Repeat chorus

It was over in a minute
That's when i realized
The blood came from my mouth and nose
But the tears came from his eyes
And in memory of tht fateful night
I know the greatest pain was his
And i just pray some day i'm half the man he is
Just like my older brothers
I crawled back in the house
The night i called the old man out
