"I'm Just A Man" as written by and John D./brock Rich....
I'm a blue collar man had a hammer in my hand
For the last few years of my life
Working double overtime
While you sleep alone at night
Baby I know it's been a long hard ride
Sometimes I forget to say I love you
But baby please know that I do, Yeah

[Chorus]
I live this life everyday
I make my share of mistakes
And every lesson I've learned
I've learned the hard way
I do the best that I can
And I hope you understand
After all, I'm just a man

I found a postcard that you've saved
That's turned yellow with age
Of a beautiful place in the sun
We've been saying every year that we're gonna go there
And run away just the two of us
Well I put that picture back on your dresser
Grab my keys, I got to get back to work, Yeah

[Chorus: x2]

After all, I'm just a man
That's all I am
Baby I'm just a man

    General CommentThis is about an average guy just trying to get by. He has a girl at home, but never see's her anymore. He wants to take her everywhere she wants to go, but just doesn't have the money or time. He talks about how he is just a man.

    General CommentMy post from above was a long time ago and now that i read it all I have to say is wow. I left so many parts out to this song. Let me start by saying this has to be my favorite song of all time just because it seems to relate to my life perfectly it's scary. First off "I'm a blue collar man had a hammer in my hand for the last few years of my life. Working double overtime while you sleep alone at night. Baby I know it's been a long hard ride" I know what you are thinking, but you do not necessarily have to be blue collar, but just work really hard at your job because you want to provide for the people you love. From all this hard work he sometimes forgets to say the things that mean the most to most women, but he wants her to know that he does. "Sometimes I forget to say I love you, but baby please know that I do. Who hasn't been working so hard that they forget to say or do something. The chorus relates to me the most and I believe to most people (Women included even though this is targeted towards men.) "I live this life everyday, I make my share of mistakes and every lesson I've learned I've learned the hard way" This is a big one for me. He is stating that he gets up and does what he needs everyday no matter what, no excuses. During some of his days he makes mistakes as everyone does every now and then. The thing is the mistakes he makes he learns from them "the hard way" which means from experience. "I do the best that I can and I hope you understand, After all I'm just a man. He is stating that even though he might not be perfect he does the best he can. He hopes his girl understands that he is doing it for her. He is not superman. He is just a man. He understands his girl wants a little more that what he can give her at the moment. Hence "I found a postcard that you saved it's turned yellow with age of a beautiful place in the sun." She wants a vacation with him so they can spend time together. He knows that he has been putting it off. " We've been saying every year that we're gonna go there and runaway just the two of us." The reality of it is that he has to work really hard to achieve that dream it just doesn't fall into your lap. "Well I put that picture back on your dresser. Grab my keys I gotta get back to work. All in all this song is the shit. It explains everything that has happened to me in relationships and life up to this point. All I can say is I'm Just A Man.
