Kevin Sharp – Measure Of A Man lyrics

(Larry Boone/Rick Bowles)

I may never buy me a big house
A Cadillac, cruising with the top down
That ain't the way I am

I judge a man by the gold on the inside
I'm not fooled by the glitter on the outside
That ain't the measure of a man

It ain't how far you go
It ain't how much you make
Son, it's what you give
Not what you take
It's being strong and true
To those counting on you
It's lendin' a hand, makin' a stand
That's the measure of a man

I give an honest day's work for an honest day's pay
I'll stand behind every word I say
I'll seal a deal with a shake of a hand
If I'm a few rungs short of the top of the ladder
When I meet my maker what will it matter
That ain't the measure of a man

It ain't how far you go
It ain't how much you make
Son, it's what you give
Not what you take
It's being strong and true
To those counting on you
It's lendin' a hand, makin' a stand
That's the measure of a man

It's lendin' a hand, makin' a stand
That's the measure of a man
That's the measure of a man
