That's My Boy

Lyrics

Everywhere I go, he’s underneath my feet
He just wants to see
Everything I do, whatever I’m up too
He tries to imitate me

Swings a hammer and drives an old nail
It just won’t seem to go
When he hits his thumb, he tries to hide the tears
He’s a man and he wants me to know

He’s growin’ up now
He don’t want me to hold his hand
He’s growin’ up now
Each day he acts a little more like a man
Yea, that’s my boy

On Saturday we go into town
He gets a bottle of pop
Hops up in the chair and tells old Joe
Take a little off the top

Then we drive around in our new pickup truck
He sits in my lap
On the radio, plays a country song
We sing along and clap

He’s growin’ up now
He don’t want me to hold his hand
He’s growin’ up now
Each day he looks a little more like a man
Yea, that’s my boy

Now my boy has grown up before my eyes
Now my boy has grown into a man
Now my boy has a son of his own
Now my boy has to hold on to his hand

We get together when the weekend rolls around
And tune up that old truck
Just the three of us, we’ll spend a little time
Get some dirt on our hands.

When we drive around in that old pickup
It brings back memories
I think to myself, how much he has grown
And how much he’s apart of me

He’s grown up now
He don’t need me to hold his hand
He’s grown up now
Each day I realize he’s become a man
But he’s still my boy

Yea that’s my boy
