"Who's That Man" as written by and Toby Keith....
Turn left at the old hotel
I know this boulevard much too well
It hasn't changed since I've been gone
Oh, this used to be my way home

They paved the road through the neighborhood
I guess the county finally fixed good
It was gettin' rough
Someone finally complained enough

Fight the tears back with a smile
Stop and look for a little while
Oh it's plain to see
The only thing missing is me

That's my house and that's my car
That's my dog in my backyard
There's the window to the room
Where she lays her pretty head
I planted that tree out by the fence
Not long after we moved in
That's my kids and that's my wife
Who's that man, runnin' my life

If I pulled in would it cause a scene
They're not really expectin' me
Those kids have been through hell
I hear they adjusted well

Turn around in the neighbors drive
I'd be hard to recognize
In this pick-up truck
It's just an old fixer up

Drive away one more time
Lot of things going through my mind
I guess the less things change
The more they never seem the same

That's my house and that's my car
That's my dog in my back yard
There's the window to the room
Where she lays her pretty head
I planted that tree out by the fence
Not long after we moved in
That's my kids and that's my wife
Who's that man, runnin' my life

    General CommentI actually think that the main character is dead...think about it. "who's that man running my life?" he might mean god.

    General CommentCountry songs like this always fascinate me because you pick up a lot in such simple songs. The song is fairly clearcut, yet when you hear it from the singer you can relate to them and their opinions and what they're going through.

    "There's the window to the room
    Where she lays her pretty head"

    Above is one example.
