He said, Sit down son, we gotta talk
I said, it’s my life, I’m gonna do what I want
I’m not gonna crawl, Im gonna walk
Walk right out that door”
He said, I used to be a lot like you
Theres nothing you’ve done that I didn’t do
I laughed and said, Dad I’m bullet proof
We’ve been through this before

I couldn’t believe it there was a tear in my old man’s eye
When I was leaving he tried to say goodbye, he said

Stand tall when you stumble stay proud when you’re humbled
The lessons you learn wont be the ones you plan
Every step up that mountain will be more than worth counting
But when you walk through the valley may you walk like a man

I’ve seen a couple of miles on a gravel road
Been taught a couple things that I didn’t know
Now I even got a kid of my own starting to sound a lot like me
I learned a little thing called sacrifice
Given up on dreams lost a couple fights
All anybody wants is a better life and something to believe


Stand tall when you stumble stay proud when you’re humbled
The lessons you learn wont be the ones you plan
Every step up that mountain will be more than worth counting
But when you walk through the valley may you walk like a man


I couldn’t believe it when the tears came to my eyes
It isn’t easy standing on the other side
I said Sit down son, we gotta talk
Hey it’s your life, you’re gonna do what you want
I wont say crawl before you walk
Cause I heard my old man in my mind saying


Stand tall when you stumble stay proud when you’re humbled
The lessons you learn wont be the ones you plan
Every step up that mountain will be more than worth counting
But when you walk through the valley may you walk like a man


And when you go on without me walk like a man
Walk on

    General CommentThis song is only found on the of Lost Highway Target CD. Don't know why it didn't make it on every CD. Probably just a good business move by Jon. He got me to buy two of the Lost Highway Cd's because I had to have this song when I found out about it. Jon's a master marketer, that's for sure. It's a great song.
