fraction of a man lyrics – jerrod niemann

i don’t buy that free lip service
suits and rich folks don’t make me nervous, no
but i respect the law and those below the clay
and i don’t answer to those who question
my job, my lingo or my religion

see i know well those are choices i made

[chorus:]
i take the high in the road
give the light of the load
i live my life with p*ssion and love
i’m a man, not a fraction of

me and my friends tend to spend time
laughing at jokes with the same ol punch lines
still i wouldn’t trade those wasted days
oh, that’s right
and i don’t always learn my lesson
haven’t left the best first impressions
and my baby knows i’m stubborn and stuck in my ways

[repeat chorus x2]

aw, lets play
the eagle flies with the right and left wings
i’m partial to farmers with small town families
no, i don’t forget where i was born and raised
and i don’t claim to be a rhodes scolar
i’m rough on the edges, blue in the collar
but i ain’t alone, i’m feeling proud to say

[repeat chorus x2]

i take the high in the road
give the light of the road, aw
i live my life with p*ssion and love
i’m man not a fraction of
i take the high in the road.
