"So Much Like My Dad" as written by and Bobby/moman Emmons....
I know that I surprised you coming home,
It's not my usual time of year; but I've got myself a problem,
And I know that I might find the answer here.
Remember when I was dad's pride and joy and your little man,
Every time that I got hurt you were there to give a hand.
You would pick me up, and you'd kiss my hurt away.
Remember what you'd say,
"Boy you're getting more like him each and every day."
Can we have a talk like it was yesterday?

Your boy is back in trouble and he needs you right away.
She says she's gonna leave me, momma.
Nothing on God's green Earth would make her stay.
I can't live without her, momma,
But this time you can't kiss the hurt away.
But if I'm so much like my dad,

There must have been times you felt her way.
So tell me word for word what he said that always made you stay.
She says she's gonna leave me, momma.
But if I'm so much like my dad,

There must have been times you felt her way.
So tell me word for word what he said
That always made you stay.

    General Commentwhy doesn't this song have any comments? it is, in my opinion, the best true country song ever written. it's about a grown man whose mother always told him he was "so much like his dad" when he was a kid. now that he's grown, his girlfriend/fiance/wife is leaving him. he asks his mom to tell him word-for-word what his father used to tell her to keep them together, because since he's "so much like his dad," his mother must have felt the same way as his girlfriend in the past.
