Walk Like a Man  Tim McGraw

**CAPO 3**
there really is not intro to this song, he just starts on the down stroke of the D
[D]In the fights they had he'd cover up his ears
Thought big boys don't cry, fought back a[Em]ll t[-]he [D/F#]tears[-] [G]
[G]Mama'd use her make up, to hide the bruises on his face[D] [G-D]
In the m[A]orning they'd pretend that there'd never ever b[G]een a trace[D]
[D]His old man woke him up to help him find the car
Take the bus uptown outside some rundo[Em]wn b[-]ar[D/F#] [-] [G]
[G]And swore that he was quittin, and then he'd start to cry[D] [G-D]
And though the b[A]oy knew the truth sometimes he'd still believe[G] that lie[D]
When the s[G]ins of the father are the sins of the son
All y[D]ou do is crawl when you [Bm]wanna run
And [Em]God gave boys their mamas cause
They [D/F#]always see their promise
And they h[G]elp them unders[D/F#]tand[Em] [A]
How to walk like a man[D] [Bm]
Walk l[Em]ike a man[G]
They m[D]oved a lot of places, they never settled down
It got pretty old being the n[Em]ew k[-]id [D/F#]in tow[-]n[G]
[G]He always told his friends, my daddy's sick today[D] [G-D]
Said he'd be r[A]ich if he had a nickel every time he heard hi[G]s mama say[D]
Chorus 2:
The s[G]ins of the father are the sins of the son
[D]Crawl before you walk, boy, walk before you[Bm] run
[Em]Come on, stand up straight
I'm [D/F#]proud of you
Take my h[G]and, I know you[D/F#] can[Em] [A]
Walk lik[D]e a [Bm]man
Walk like a [Em]man[G]
[A]Your daddy's demons are callin' your name[D] [G]
[A]Don't you listen to them cause they've got no claim[D] [G]
[A]Temptations may come, that ain't no sin[D] [G]
You get s[Em]tronger every time that you don't give in[D/F#] [G] [A]
Chorus 3:
The s[G]ins of the father are the sins of the son
[D]You can't undo what has been done[Bm]
[Em]You'll have to retrace his f[D/F#]ootsteps
Through the s[G]and[D/F#]
And pray you [Bm]find the love of a g[E7]irl
And t[G]ake her by the hand[D/F#]
And w[Em]alk on[A]
Walk like a [Bm-A-G] man
