about

For my Dad.

lyrics

I have your blood in my veins
You gave me life and asked for nothing in exchange.
Nothing really I could do
To show all my gratitude
For the perfect figure
Through my whole entire youth, Dad.

You've picked me up when I've been screwed
Crashed your cars, I ate your food
Nothing's ever stopped you from loving me
Well I can't believe the things you've seen
And all the spaces in between
While I gave you so much hell
All throughout my teens

I know that Raymond's proud
And Barbara's smiling from the clouds
It's such an honor to be around you now.

Whoa oh oh oh oh you are my Southern Hero
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh you are my Southern Hero
Whoa oh oh oh oh

I felt you tremble as you held me in your hands
You told Mom this was the plan
To send me off to be a man
Well did it work?
I hope it did.
I always wanna make you say
"My boy's a chip off the old block.
He's gonna make it someday."

I know that Raymond's proud
And Barbara's smiling from the clouds
It's such an honor to be around you now.

Whoa oh oh oh oh you are my Southern Hero
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh you are my Southern Hero
Whoa oh oh oh oh

(Interlude)

I know that your Dad is proud
And your Mom must be smiling from above the clouds
It is such an honor to call you my father
I'll scream it from the top of my lungs.

Whoa oh oh oh oh you are my Southern Hero
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh you are my Southern Hero
Whoa oh oh oh oh
