Lyrics

got into a fist fight, on my first day of school

came home with a fat lip, and a blackened eye to boot

seems the local bully boy didn't like me much

he knocked me down, I got right up, what else could I do



I came home to my old man

told me what I had to do

'cos tomorrow that same bully boy

'be waiting there for you


there's good and there's bad in this world be live

(I'm tellin' ya son, I'm tellin' ya son)

believe what you feel, not what you heard

(I'm tellin' ya son, I'm tellin' ya son)



I met a girl at sixteen, she broke my heart in two

I learned to drink at seventeen, had my first woman, too

times they were a changin', my old town I outgrew

had to see the world, live my own life

so many things I had to do



I left my job at the cannery, I'd saved a buck or two

oh, I knew I'd miss 'ol mom and dad

it's what I had to do



there's good and there's bad in this world be live

(I'm tellin' ya son, I'm tellin' ya son)

believe what you feel, not what you heard

(I'm tellin' ya son, I'm tellin' ya son)



now pop was right and I made good

I've been all 'round the world

some times I still miss my old town, people I left behind

maybe some day I'll settle down and meet a loving girl

till then I'll go wanderin', it's the life I choose



I carry in my heart the words he said

it seems like yesterday

my pop's been gone now for a couple years

still remember what he said
