"Man Like You" as written by and Jeffrey Wayne Bates Jeff Bates....
Wake up Darlin, I've gotta go
The boss just called an he's got me low

Pick-up in Texas, drop-off in Maine
Then Ill then head back home to you again
Well, I hope you understand and miss me too
I'm just workin for the man an me an you

There's something about the way he shakes my hand
And says, Man, thank you
And then my paycheck reflects his gratitude
And that's enough with your sweet love
To keep these wheels a turnin
Down the road of life and on the highway too
While I'm workin for the man an me an you

Hello Darlin, I had to call
I'm just a mile outside of Arkansas

And I was thinkin, when I get home
About making love to you all night long
But I'm hold you with my heart until I do
An keep workin for the man an me an you

There's something about the way he shakes my hand
And says, Man, thank you
And then my paycheck reflects his gratitude
And that's enough with your sweet love
To keep these wheels a turnin
Down the road of life and on the highway too
While I'm workin for the man an me an you

Down the road of life and highway too
I'm just workin for the man an me an you

    Lyric CorrectionHey, I just saw him live last night and the lyrics are actually:
    "I knew a time you could stand still beside
    never rushing by"

    Lyric CorrectionThis may not be entirely correct but when I break the song down verse by verse this is as close to exact as I can get to what he is singing in the song.


    "I knew a boy that was swallowed by you sky,
    by the flashing lights,

    I knew a man that got lost in the big dull brew,
    and came out alive,

    I knew a boy, I knew a man that looked a lot like you

    I knew a time you could stand still beside,
    never rushing by,

    I knew a place you can go where your head do explode,
    into a piece of mind,

    I knew a time, I knew place that felt a lot like you,

    I knew boy, I knew a man who looked a lot, lot like you,

    Just like you,

    I knew a friend that would hold on to the flames,
    keep them from burning you,

    I knew a smile that could see through all of the stones,
    that the world had thrown,

    I knew a smile, I knew a friend that looked a lot like you,

    I knew a boy, I knew a man who looked a lot like you."
