Now daddy didn't like trouble, but if it came along, 
every one that knew him knew which side that he would 
be on. He never was a hero, or this county's shining 
light, But you could always find him standing up for 
what he thought was right. 

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll 
fall for anything. You've got to be your own man not a 
puppet on a string. Never compromise what's right and 
uphold your family name. You've got to stand for 
something or you'll fall for anything. 

We might of been better off or owned a bigger house, 
if daddy had done more given in or a little more 
backing down. But we always had plenty just living his 
advice. What ever you do today you'll have to sleep 
with tonight. 

(Repeat Chorus)

I know that things are different than they were in 
daddy's day, but I still believe what makes a man 
really hasn't changed. 

(Repeat Chorus)
