WALK ON THE ROCKS (John E. Swaim) « © '96 Artin Music » After seventeen years behind bars and looking back on his mistakes He sat down and poured out his heart when his son came to see him today He spoke with a voice that trembled trying to hold back the tears He said I ain't been much of a father son I wish I could turn back the years Cause life's like a river and the water is deep cross it with care or you'll end up like me Let my mistakes be your steppin' stones and walk on the rocks that I stumbled on [ fiddle ] He said son stay away from the bottle watch out for the company you keep And hold on to those you love cause love is a man's greatest need The right way may not be easy the right road ain't always straight Son please don't follow the footsteps that lead to where I am today Cause life's like a river... [ fiddle ] Walk on the rocks that I stumbled on
