He said sit down son, we've gotta talk
I said "it's my life, I'm gonna do what I want
I'm not gonna crawl, I'm gonna walk
Walk right out that door"

He said "I used to be a lot like you
There's nothing you've done that I didn't do"
I left and said "Dad I'm bulletproof
We've been through this before"

I couldn't believe it
There was a tear in my old man's eye
When I was leaving
He tried to say goodbye

He said stand tall when you stumble
Stay pround when you're humbled
The lessons you learn
Won't be the ones that you plan

And every step up that mountain
Will be more than worth countin'
And when you walk through the valley
May you walk like a man

And now I've seen a couple miles on a gravel road
Been taught a couple things that I didn't know
And yeah, I've even got a kid of my own
Starting to sound a lot like me

I learned a little thing called sacrifice
Givin' up on dreams, lost a couple fights
All anybody wants is a better life
And something to believe

Stand tall when you stumble
Stay pround when you're humbled
All the lessons you learn
Won't be the ones that you plan

Every step up that mountain
Will be more that worth countin'
When you walk through the valley
May you walk like a man

I couldn't believe it
When the tears came to my eyes
It isn't easy
Standing on the other side

I said "Sit down son we gotta talk
Hey it's your life, you're gonna do what you want
I won't say crawl before you walk"
Cause I heard my old man in my mind sayin'

Stand tall when you stumble
Stay pround when you're humbled
All the lessons you learn
Won't be the ones that you plan

And every step up that mountain
Will be more that worth countin'
And when you walk through the valley
May you walk like a man

And when you go on without me
Walk, like a man

Walk on
