My daddy was a charmer, boys, he had a lot of style
He was shining best at everything he did
They said that he could lighten up a room with just a smile
And I was proud as hell to be his kid

It seemed like just as we were growing close together he was gone
But it was long enough to show what I could be
And I sometimes feel his spirit fill my body like a song
And this is what my daddy sings to me

Chorus:
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you don't deserve
You'll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let 'em drive you crazy, boy, they'll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
'cause the heart is all that matters in the end

They say every song is sweeter when you sing it from the heart
I won't knock it 'cause I tried it and it's true
I may never get to heaven, but I've seen a lot of stars
And I'm here to bring the same advice to you.

Chorus:
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you don't deserve
You'll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let 'em drive you crazy, boy, they'll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
'cause the heart is all that matters in the end

Yes, the heart is all that matters in the end
The heart is all that matters in the end
