"My Last Name" as written by and Bentley/allen....
I learned how to write it
When I first started school
Some bully didn't like it,
He said it didn't sound too cool
So I had to hit him
And all I said when the blood came
It's my last name

Grandpa took it off to Europe
To fight the Germans in the war
It came back on some dog tags
Nobody wears no more
It's written on a headstone
In the field where he was slain
It's my last name

Passed down from generations
Too far back to trace
I can see all my relations
When I look into my face
May never make it famous
But I'll never bring it shame
It's my last name

Daddy always told me far back as I recall
Son, you're part of somethin',
You represent us all
So keep it how you got it, as solid as it came
It's my last name

Passed down from generations
Too far back to trace
I can see all my relations
When I look into my face
May never make it famous
But I'll never bring it shame
It's my last name

So darlin' if you're wonderin'
Why I've got you here tonight
I want to be your husband, I want you to be my wife
I ain't got much to give you
But what I've got means everything
It's my last name
Oh, it's my last name

I learned how to write it
When I first started school

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me because I have a unique last name.

    My favorite lines are:

    "So darlin if you're wonderin
    Why I've got you here tonight
    I wanna be your husband
    I want you to be my wife
    I ain't got much to give you
    But what I've got means everything
    It's my last name"

    A wonderful song about the pride that comes in being who you are and knowing where you come from.
