Lyrics

[V 1]
I wonder how it was for you,
the BATTLES that you fought.
The PRESSURE put upon you
to be someone you’re not.

If I made it harder,
for all my best intentions, I was wrong.
I love you like a father wanting nothing
but the best for you, my son.

[Chorus]
I’m PROUD
PROUD

[V 2]
You never jived with FOOTBALL,
you’re the perfect son for me.
They stuck you out in RIGHT FIELD,
the same field they stuck me.

JOHN, PAUL, George and Ringo are the saints,
I grilled you on their names.
At 10 years old you heard the Allman Brothers
in a field, out in the rain.

[Chorus]
I’m PROUD
Proud to be your dad
I’m PROUD of you
The best SON I could have


[V 3]
I’ve seen you DRIVE a hundred miles
for a friend who’s in distress.
Call it crazy, Call it loyal, call it love,
I call it a GIFT

Your Gunny Sgt told me
“That young man will do fine.”
And I know a Sgt Major up in heaven
Will salute you, Semper Fi.

[Chorus]
I’m PROUD
Proud to be your dad
I’m PROUD of you
The best / SON / I could have

[Instrumental]

[V 4]
I know you got a lot to say
Gotta pick your time and place.
Let no one in their RIGHTEOUSNESS
diminish what you say.

Remember when you fall off
Climb back upon your horse
It will all be fine, in time,
As nature takes its course.

[Chorus 2 X’s]
I’m PROUD
Proud to be your dad
I’m PROUD of you
The best / SON / I could have

[Tag]
Proud / proud
Proud / the best son I could have

Proud
