Man Like Me

Bobby Pinson

Tom: D
D    G    D    G 
 
Verse One 
D                           G 
Walk out of an alley with a bloody dollar bill 
D                  A             G 
Holdin' your lunch money that no bully's gonna steal 
D                                G 
Put that dime left over with the others in a box 
            D             A               G 
To buy your grandpa a new buck knife to replace the one you lost 
 
Verse Two 
D                              G 
Steal your daddy's Pontiac and plant it in a ditch 
D                 A                   G 
Watch him walk to work all week 'till he could get it fixed 
D                           G 
Work it off on the weekends sweating in a mill 
D               A               G 
Go there with a debt to pay and leave there with a skill 
 
Chorus: 
       D              G          D                  G        A 
That's how you make a boy become more than just his father's son 
G         D      G         D     G          A       G 
Fight and crawl, climb and fall, stand tall on your knees 
                               D               G 
That's how you make a man like me 
 
Verse Three 
Pick up that telephone you wish you never heard 
Take the longest two mile drive you ever took to her 
And wait 'till she takes that test 'cause you just couldn't wait and taste 
Bittersweet victory when she says, 'We're okay' 
 
Verse Four 
Let your buddy leave a party, don't ask him for his keys 
Rest that casket on the shoulder where your best friend used to lean 
See that baby boy's whole life flash right before his mama's eyes 
Live with knowing you could have saved his life 
 
Chorus: 
       D              G          D                  G        A 
That's how you make a boy become more than just his father's son 
G         D      G         D     G          A       G 
Fight and crawl, climb and fall, stand tall on your knees 
                      A        D       G       D        G 
That's how you make a man like me 
 
D                               G 
Kick yourself for stumblin' but never leave your feet 
D              A                 G 
Lie awake with your mistakes and find peace piece by piece 
D                           G 
Pray that you'll wake up as who you want to be 
D              A               D       G 
That's how you make a man like me 
D                 G          D                G 
Walk proud in the shoes that no ones wants to be 
D              A             D             G          D        G 
That's how you make a man             like me
