lyrics

There’s a man out in the oak
Hands of wood and steel and walls
Break them down or build them all
There’s a man, high as a mountain
Casts a shadow on the land
Though he does not look so tall

I wanna be like that
I wanna make a stand
Please tell me how I can
I wanna walk that line
Well-worn yet defined
A life out on the vine

I will run until my legs give out
I will sing my song ‘til my voice is dead and gone
I will work until my veins grow cold
'Til my back is broke and I am my father’s son
My father’s son

There’s a man up on the roof
We only know what he reveals
Fell that tree with sword and shield
There’s a man out in the grass
Keeping peace with older souls
And protecting all they yield

I wanna be like that
I wanna make a stand
Please tell me how I can
I wanna walk that line
Well-worn yet defined
A life out on the vine

I will run until my legs give out
I will sing my song ‘til my voice is dead and gone
I will work until my veins grow cold
'Til my back is broke and I am my father’s son
My father’s son
