Luke Combs – My Old Man Was Right Lyrics

Luke Combs My Old Man Was Right Lyrics

He handed me the keys and knew I’d take some wrong turns
He quit smoking and begged me not to try
He’d say, “Get too close to the fire, and son, you’ll get burned”
But I was too young to know my old man was right

I cranked that car and swore I’d never come back
As I took a drag of a half-smoked Marlboro Light
Well, I could take the heat, so I held on to that lit match
‘Cause I was too young to know my old man was right

He said, “Lessons, they ain’t gotta come the hard way
But you’ll be hellbent to learn ’em on your own
It may take your whole life, but I bet in due time
Son, you’ll find your old man was right”

He said, “Stand your ground but let your heart fall in love
And that breaking, it’s just part of life
And the good ones always love you just like Jesus does”
But I was too young to know my old man was right

But he said, “Lessons, they ain’t gotta come the hard way
But you’ll be hellbent to learn ’em on your own
It may take your whole life, but I bet in due time
Son, you’ll find your old man was right”

Now it’s his turn to watch me be the old man
With my baby boy lying by my side
And every lesson that he taught me, I hope I teach him
‘Cause I’m old enough to know my old man was right
