The dining room fell silent
I just told my dad he's full of it
And I should've said "I'm sorry"
I can still hear that screen door slammin'

But somehow I couldn't help but have my doubt
Each time they called the old man out
Fist to fist and eye to eye
He would've let me walk away
Years of my frustration
Now he'll pay for all the times that he's been right
He said "Son, it's gonna hurt me more than it hurts you"
'Cause I'd seen my older brothers crawl back in the house

That's when I realized
But the tears came from his eyes
I know the greatest pain was his
Just like my older brothers
The night I called the old man out
He said "Son, it's gonna hurt me more than it hurts you"
'Cause I'd seen my older brothers crawl back in the house
