Shenandoah – (It's Hard To Live Up To) The Rock lyrics

He was the captain of a team in forty two
A favorite of the fans and the ladies too
I still love those stories about the rock

He fought for his country in Normandy
And drove the Germans back to Germany
Captains right hand man was a rock

And to me he look tall as a tree
At times I though he'd never notice me
Standing in the shadow of the rock

I try to make him proud of me
But my mistakes was all he'd see
It always seems so hard to please the rock

And he'll never know how hard I try
Be the man I thought that I shouldn't be in his eyes
And I gave my all to be strong and stand tall, to be the rock
Oh Lord, it's hard to live up to the rock

He came to visited me the other day
I couldn't believe how much he'd aged
But in my eyes he'll always be the rock

He said, "Son, ain't it funny how the years roll by"
As he turned his head, I saw him rub his eyes
I never had felt closer to the rock

He said, "Son, you made my life complete"
The only man I try to be
I never thought I'd hear from the rock

And I was almost overcome, he comforted me
He said, "It's an honor to call you, son"
And I'm proud to say, "You're a chip off the old block"

And you'll never know how hard I try
To be the man I thought that I shouldn't be in your eyes
And I gave my all to be strong and stand tall and be your rock
Oh Lord, it's hard to live up to the rock
Oh Lord, it's hard to live up to the rock
