I was at that smart *** time of my life
If he said black, I said white
The dinner table we sat around
And I lost more times than I won

I just kept screaming" Come on, dad!
You don't know me at all!
Yeah, you gave me my life, but its my life to live

Squared jaw and a crew cut
He'd tell you every chance he'd get
My friends, my hair, my clothes.
And right there we came to blows
I couldn't wait to prove him wrong!
Twenty years ago
Couldn't tell me nothing
Later I was on my way
My old man and his gray hair
Twenty years ago
"Well I left as fast as the leaves fell that autumn
But every time I talked to momma
I figured I walked out of him and the course of our love had run
He believes what he believes, well you're just like him'
She broke down, and said he ain't got long
Thought about all the years gone
I ran up those stairs and stood by his bed

Thought I knew it all
Was like talking to a wall
Acting like I did
Is just to be your kid
He took my hand and said "son let it go, that was twenty years ago"
