Shannon Walker – His Father's Son lyrics

Someone asked me 'bout the live I had
I thought about it and I said "My Dad"
I learned to play guitar from my old man
He's the reason that I'm who I am
If he'd been a gambler I'd be on the Vegas trip
If he'd been a rambler I'd be on a plane or ship
If he'd been a salesman I'd be somewhere selling cars
If he'd been a drinker I'd be sitting in a bar
Even Jesus looked up to someone
Cause a boy will always be
His father's son

Every young boy I knew as a kid
Wanted to do what daddy did
Be a big or small or good or bad
Daddy's footsteps is a young boy's path
If he'd been a preacher I'd be somewhere saving souls
If he'd been a teacher I'd be in a school I know
If he'd been a joker I'd be making people laugh
If he'd been a soldier I'd be walking through Baghdad
Even Jesus looked up to someone
Cause a boy will always be
His father's son

So dads choose wisely what it is you do
Cause there is someone looking up to you
Girl'll get husband and he's gonna love his wife
If you have no other then he'll be home every night
You support your family he's gonna have a job
If you took him to church the grandkids will no doubt
Cause even Jesus looked up to someone
And a boy will always be
His father's son
