RiverBilly – Like Father, Like Son lyrics

Well my parents got married way to soon,
Momma got her first beating on her honeymoon,
Daddy didn't want me but I was born,
To a single wide trailer at heralds door,
Well the violence didn't stop just because I was there,
He punched her n he holler and he pulled her hair,
Snatched me up from the cradle even had the nerve,
He said look at your momma she what she deserves,

As long as I'll live it will always stay with me,
And so I make myself this promise you know I intend to keep,
I'll never hurt the ones I love and the they'll never hear me yell,
Like father like son like hell,

And when I look in the mirror I can see his face,
The same eyes same jaw same blood in my veins,
Just cause daddy was a monster doesn't make me one,
Cause it's the things you do it aint who you come from,
So I love my wife just as hard as I can,
I want the eyes of my children to see a good man,
I grew up around darkness every day,
And no body should have to live that way,

As long as I'll live it will always stay with me,
And so I make myself this promise you know I intend to keep,
I'll never hurt the ones I love and they'll never hear me yell,
I'd rather hurt myself,

And like father like son like hell,
And like father like son like hell,

Yeaahhh I cann!
