There's a tyre on the rope above the swimming hole
Where Danny and Dave and Tim would go
Make up stories 'bout girls they know
Brothers and best friends
Now the dam's dried up and the rope is frayed
Danny and Dave they ran away
Timmy he just had to stay

'Cause he's the last man standing on this ground
He was raised on this land and he ain't leaving now
All the other boys have packed up and gone
Leaving him to carry on
"Cause he's the last man standing

Mama took a job at the General Store
Timmy built a ramp from the front porch door
"Cause Daddy can't do much round here anymore
He just sits and stares

And it breaks his heart not to lend a hand
He says "There's too much work for just one man"
Timmy says "Dad don't you understand?"

"Cause I'm the last man standing on the ground
I was raised on this land and I won't let you down

All your other boys have packed up and gone
You can count on me to carry on
"Cause I'm the last man standing

Sometimes late at night he dreams
Of places he won't see
But he says "All they've got is me"

Now he's the last man standing on this ground
He was raised on this land and he ain't leaving now
All the other boys have packed up and gone
Leaving him to carry on
He's the last man standing on this ground
He won't let his mama and his daddy down
All the other boys have packed up and gone
They can count on him to carry on
"Cause he's the last man standing.
