I watched while you might say
So long happy trails
You can only wait so long
Till the wind shakes your sails
And you see the she says "bye bye"
Then she turns and digs her heels back in
I'm gonna let you be the bigger man tonight
I'm gonna let you be the bigger man tonight
I'm gonna let you be the bigger man tonight
Oh you got nothing to prove to me

You say the deck is oh so stacked
Is that all just in your mind
It can sometimes be turned back
Maybe sometimes if you try
The play goes on and on
While the big cats all lay their claim

I'm gonna let you be the bigger man tonight
I'm gonna let you be the bigger man tonight
I'm gonna let you be the bigger man tonight
Oh you got nothing to prove

If it all comes down tonight
There'll be shades of light
From a wider source
Oh hit me up they'd say
"We'll make nero hide
Till Rome it burns to the ground"
Then we'll never wave bye bye
They never have seen a darker horse than us

CHORUS
