walk a little straighter lyrics – billy currington

i remember looking up
to look up to him
and i remember most the time
he wasn’t there
i’d be waiting at the door
when he got home at night
he’d p*ss me by to go to p*ss out in his chair

and i’d say
walk a little straighter daddy
you’re swaying side to side
you’re footsteps make me dizzy
and no matter how i try
i keep tripping and stumbling
if you’d look down here you’d see
walk a little straighter daddy
you’re leading me

he stumbled in the gym
on graduation day
and i couldn’t help but feel
so ashamed
and i wasn’t surprised a bit
when he didn’t stay
he stumbled out before they called my name

and i thought
walk a little straighter daddy
you’re swaying side to side
it’s not just me who’s watching
you’ve caught everybody’s eye
and you’re tripping and stumbling
and even though i’ve turned 18
walk a little straighter daddy
you’re still leading me

the old mans still like he always was
but i love him anyway
if i’ve learned one thing from him
its my kids will never have to say

walk a little straighter daddy
you’re swaying side to side
you’re footsteps make me dizzy
and no matter how i try
i keep tripping and stumbling
if you’d look down here you’d see
walk a little straighter daddy
you’re leading me

yeah walk a little straighter daddy
you’re leading me
