Heroes   Paul Overstreet


He drives in to the city works extra hard all  day
He finishes up early so he can get away
Cause there's a blue  eyed kid on second base
Wants dad to watch him play 
Daddy knows  he's waiting so he hurries on his way
Cause you know heroes come in  ever shape and size
Making special sacrifices for others in their  lives
No one gives a medal the world don't know their name
But in  some ones eye their heroes just the some
She rocks her crying baby in  the hours before dawn
She whispers words of hope to help her husband to  hold on
She takes time with the children making sure they know she  cares
She's more than just mamma she's the answer to their  prayers

CHORUS

Now I don't pretend to know you but I bet it's safe  to say
Someone out there somewhere looking up to you today
They  see every thing you do except for your mistakes
You may not think you  measure up but you've got all it takes

CHORUS

No one gives a medal  the world don't know their name 
But in someone's eye their heroes just  the same
Yeah in some one eyes their heroes just the same
Back  where we made our plans to tie the knot
My friends they all laughed at me  a lot
They slapped my back and told me how they thought I was  insane
They said son your too young to wear that ball and  chain

CHORUS:

But love don't feel like a ball and chain to  me
When I'm close to you my heart feels wild and free
If you are  my jailer darling throw away the key
Love don't feel like a ball and  chain to me
Love don't free like a ball and chain
It don't  feel like a ball and chain
Love don't feel like a ball and chain to  me
Well I still see my single friends from time to time
And  they ask me how it feels to walk the line
Well I tell 'em it feels better  than I ever dreamed it would
And I would not trade places with era even  if I could 

CHORUS

Well if it is a crime for a man to love his  wife
Throw that old book at me give me 99 to life
I'll spend every  minute every hour every day
Holding you close I don't wanta get  away

CHORUS

Love don't feel like a ball and chain to me Ê--  Ê8x's fade
