You've Got To Stand For Something Aaron Tippin
[D] [G] [D] [D] [A] [D]
Now [D]daddy didn't like trouble, but [A]if it came [D]along,
[G]every one that [D]knew him knew which [D]side that he would
be [A]on. He [G]never was a [D]hero, or this [G]county's shining
[D]light, But you could [Em]always find him [G]standing up for
[A]what he thought was [D]right.
He'd say you've [D]got to stand for something or you'll
[G]fall for anyt[D]hing. You've [D]got to be your own man not a
puppet on a [A]string. Never [G]compromise what's [D]right and
[G]uphold your family [D]name. You've [Em]got to [Em/F#]stand for
[G]something[G/B] or you'll [A]fall for anyt[D]hing.
We might of been better off or owned a bigger house,
if daddy had done more given in or a little more
backing down. But we always had plenty just living his
advice. What ever you do today you'll have to sleep
I [G]know that things are [D]different than they [G]were in
daddy's [D]day, but I [G]still believe what [G]makes a man
[G]really hasn't [A]changed.
