Carbon Copy

Verse 1

Dirty hands and dirty shoes, he always had the swing shift blues,

Deep in his eyes.

Forever grateful for what he got, he never really had a lot,

But he never realized,

Every day wed live with the danger, that he might not come home alive,

But a mans got a feed his family, even if it means working at the bottom

Of a coalmine.

Chorus: 1

Well the older I get, the more I understand, Im a Carbon Copy,

Of my old man.

Verse 2

Recap tires on his pickup truck, always breakin down and full of rust,

Somehow we made it through, Ummm Hmmmm,

Now the mines shut down and my daddys gone, but his memory,

And what he taught me lives on, it still rings true, Ummm Hmmm.

I saw the love that he shared with my mother, how they made it through

The good and the bad, how they never gave up on each other,

Even with what little they had.


Chorus 2

Oh the older I get, the more I understand, Im a Carbon Copy,

Of my old man.

Bridge:

Well now time passes, and life goes on, and now I have a Son of my own,

And my love for him, runs forever deep,

Cause when I look into his eyes, I see my daddy and me.

Ending:

Well the Older I get the more I understand, Im Carbon Copy

Of my old man.

Well Im a Carbon Copy, a Carbon Copy; Im Carbon Copy,

Of,,My,,,,,,Old,,,,,Man,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
