"Sorry Man" as written by and Scott Yancey Avett Timothy Seth Avett....
Your mama doesn't like me
She thinks I'm a sorry man
When she tells her friends about me
She says I'm a sorry man
And she asks you each day
Why would you stay with a sorry man
Well I was doing my best
Just trying to impress, still a sorry man
And I've got news for your ma
I'm the best she ever saw
No one could love your daughter like I do

Your mama told you father
She said I'm a sorry man
So he told me not to ever
Come back here again
So I told your dear old daddy
That he can't keep us apart
Because it's you and not your parents
Who can break my heart
And I've got news for your ma
I'm the best she ever saw
No one could love your daughter like I do

Well I tried to tell your mama
But I didn't want to fight
Well they'll be the same tomorrow
So we're leaving here tonight
Tomorrow they'll be waking
To a sad sorry dawn
And then they'll be sorry
When they see that we're gone
Cause I've got news for your ma
I'm the best she ever saw
No one could love your daughter like I do

    General CommentEvery one of their albums there is a song or two that I at first listen decide isn't a good song, but sure enough among several more playthroughs I find it growing on me until it is a favorite. Sorry man is like that, at first I was annoyed by the repetition but now I like it because it gives strength to the emotional line "I'm the best she ever saw, no one could love your daughter like I do"
