Sawyer Brown — The Walk lyrics

Down our long dusty driveway
I didn't want to go
But I set out with tears
In my eyes wonderin'

An' Daddy took me by the hand
Looked down at the school bus
And his little man and said
"Don't worry, boy, it will be all right"

'Cause I took this walk your walkin' now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
Well, you can't hold back the hands of time
It's just somethin' you've got to do

So dry your eyes, I understand
Just what you're goin' through
'Cause I took this same walk with my old man
Boy, I've been in your shoes

Down our long dusty driveway
I set my mind to go
Well, I was eighteen and wild
And free and wonderin`

An' Daddy took me by the hand
Look out at the world
And his grown man and said
"Don't worry, boy, it will be all right"

'Cause I took this walk your walkin' now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
Well, you can't hold back the hands of time
It's just somethin' you've got to do

So dry your eyes, I understand
Just what you're goin' through
'Cause I took this same walk with my old man
Boy, I've been in your shoes

Down our long dusty driveway
This time we both would go
Well, he had grown old and gray
And his mind was a wanderin'

An' Daddy took me by the hand
Said, I know where we're goin'
And I understand
Don't worry, boy, it'll be alright

'Cause I took this walk your walkin' now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
Well, you can't hold back the hands of time
It's just somethin' you've got to do

So dry your eyes, I understand
Just what you're goin' through
'Cause I took this same walk with my old man
Boy, I've been in your shoes

'Yes, I took this walk you're walkin' now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
