Old man knocked on my front door
With my teenage boy and a couple more
From up the road
He had him by the collar
Said he caught him shootin' beer bottles
Down in the holler and smokin'
I said is that right
He said, they won't speak when spoken to
So which one here belongs to you
And I know one does
'Cause they all started runnin'
To your back forty
When they saw me comin' on my gator
I looked in them in the eyes

And I said, he's mine that one
Got a wild-hair side and then some
There's no surprise what he's done
He's every last bit of my old man's son
If you knew me then
There'd be no question in your mind
You know he's mine
Yeah he's

Friday night football games
I was livin' for the speakers
To call the name
On the back of number thirty-seven
Just one-forty-five
And five foot eleven
Maybe

Limelight barely shined on him
But everyone still remembers when
He whooped up on that boy way bigger
For taking that cheap shot our little kicker
And they threw him out
Oh man, you should a, you should a heard me shout

I yelled he's mine that one
Got a wild-hair side and then some
It's no surprise what he's done
He's every last last bit of my old man's son
And I'll take the blame
And claim him every time
Yeah man, he's mine and he'll always be
The best thing that ever happened to me
You can't turn it off like electricity
I will love him unconditionally
And I'll take the blame
And claim him every time
Yeah, y'all, he's mine
I thank God, he's mine

    Reminds me of my little brother. He's proud of who he is and he's exactly like my father. I love them both. Bud would beat the hell outta anyone who messes with me or any of our family. He doesn't care who's watching or who their parents are. My baby brother is a 12 year old cowboy with a fightin side a mile wide and he's mine.

    I'm a loser and my son is too. Yeah! He's mine! He drinks, he smokes, disrespects his elders, uses violence to solve problems, don't expect too much because he's mine! Woohoo! Should have some more to follow in my footsteps, i'll encourage their delinquency till I die. Make the world a better place for future generations.

    I am 9 years old. Me and my dad heard this song for the first time and he asked me if I liked it I said yeah and so did he. We love that song. My dad said I might be the same way. But I don't want to be shotin' beer bottles and smoking. And I don't want a cop comin' after me on his gator. But I will always be my dads son love your song.

    This song reminds my dad of me as he says, I may be a girl but I was always dads little buddy and always gettin in trouble with the neighbors, liked shootin bottle rockets at em lol. Good times back in the day. My dad always got me outta everything and even when I was in the wrong he'd be the first to jump up and say I was his kid. My dad is my world and he knows it.
    I love you to the moon and back daddy.
    ♥ your babygirl.

    This song is mine to my son. He has been through more in his 20 years then any kid should. His dad walking out on him. The tragic death of his brother to the suicide death of his best friend. He had turned to drugs to overcome this and has kown nothing but trouble and jail since. He is curently in rehab and counceling I am proud of him for telling me he has a drug problem and asking for help finally after 2 years. We have had our ups and downs but"hes mine and I love him unconditionally!
