Lyrics

I was a little bit different always ahead of my time
And my daddy said son you're headed for a life of crime
And my mama tells me I'm the curse of the neighborhood
But I won't change now even if I thought I could
Well I left my home on the day I was twenty-one
Folks at home refer to me as prodigal son
Small times small change never did agree with me
So I went out on a limb and fell off the family tree
Now I'm making you a promise and you can take it to the witness stand
When I get a chance I'll see you just as soon as I can
Well do you miss me ma daddy do you still love me
Cause I went out on a limb and fell off of the family tree
[ guitar ]
Now you won't believe it but your little boy is havin' fun
And I don't expect you to forgive all the things I've done
But believe me ma I've learned a thing or two
I wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for my daddy and you
Now I'm making you a promise...
Well do you miss me ma daddy do you still love me
Cause I went out on a limb and fell off of the family tree
Yeah I went out on a limb and fell off of the family tree
