my last name lyrics – dierks bentley

“my last name”

i learned how to write it when i first started school,
some bully didn’t like it, he said it didn’t sound to cool,
so i had to hit him and all i said when the blood came,
it’s my last name

grandpa took of to europe to fight the germans in the war,
it came back on some dogtags n*body wears no more,
it’s written on a headstone in the field where he was slain,
it’s my last name

p*ssed down from generations too far back to trace,
i can see all my relations when i look into my face,
may never make it famous but i’ll never bring it shame,
it’s my last name

daddy always told me far back as i recall,
son, your part of somethin’, you represent us all,
so keep it how you got it , as solid as it came,
it’s my last name

p*ssed down from generations too far back to trace,
i can see all my relations when i look into my face,
may never make it famous but i’ll never bring it shame,
it’s my last name

so darlin’ if you’re wonderin’ why i’ve got you here tonight,
i wanna be your husband, i want you to be my wife,
i ain’t got much to give you but what i’ve got means everything,
it’s my last name, oh, it’s my last name

i learned how to write it when i first started school
