Jerry Jeff Walker

Hey little man, you're quite a man,
You make me smile when no one can
And days when I don't give a damn,
You come and you take my hand

And we go walking a long, long ways, seeing what we'll see
Doin' things that can make me smile,
When you do things that remind me of me

Hey, little man,
Understand you're daddy ain't nothing but a guitar man
Living his life the best he can,
Til you came I hadn't a plan
But I've been walking a long, long ways
And there are things I have seen
I learned things that might help you,
Son, when you do things that remind me of me

Bridge:
And you've got your own life to live, it's true
And I want the best in life for you
There are heartaches I could help you through, if you want me to
But if I know you, you won't ask me to

Hey little man, you got to take a stand,
Make up your mind to be all you can
Have a lot of pride and remember
That you're the son of a gypsy songman
When you're walking your long, long way seeing what you'll see
Looking back won't you tip your hat,
When you do things that remind you of me

But hey little man, now, you take my hand,
Walk a little way with your old man
It won't be long before you lead a band
And I'm just one of your fans
And when you're walking a long, long way
Seein' what you'll see
Remember people will smile sometimes
When you do things that remind them of me
