I remember when I was four or five
Walkin' home from school down country drive
Stopped by the creek, my sister and I
She showed me hers, and I showed her mine

That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man

Well, daddy's huntin' squirrel in the midst of it all
Tried to get loose, then I heard him call
Next thing I knew, he was screamin' in vain
He hit me so hard, it felt like a movin' train

That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man

Well, I learned my lesson about pain, and fun
And knowin' where not to stick my guns
When the night came that my son was born
She died at birth, and he came deformed

That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
That's how I learned to be a real man
