Walk Like A Man Lyrics

And 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 his 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 always told 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 'em '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
