How he got that GI Joe in the church this morning
I don't know but he ain't listening to the preacher
Like his mama taught him to
She's wanting me to cross the aisle
Go, sit over there with him awhile
Make him turn around and sit up straight
Stop playing in the pew
To watch him is all that I can do

'Cause I look at him and I see a boy
And I see trouble and I see joy
See innocence and headstrong
And a heart full of dreams

I look at him and I'm so amazed
I'm so proud and then so afraid
That the apple didn't fall quite far enough from the tree
Yeah I look at him and I see me

Already says when he grows up
He's gonna have a big ole truck
And I can see him getting stuck
On some private property

He'll take chances, he'll take dare's
And keep his mama and me scared to death
When he goes out at night
You know I'll bet we'll never sleep
I guess I get what my dad got from me

'Cause I look at him and I see a teen
Having fun doing stupid things
I see roadblocks I see mistakes
I see heartbreak he can't see

I look at him and I'm so amazed
I'm so proud and then sooo afraid
That the apple didn't fall quite far enough from the tree
Oh I look at him and I see me

I look at him and I see me
Breaking down one day
As he packs up all his things
To move away

I look at him and I'm so amazed
I'm so proud and then so afraid
That the apple didn't fall quite far enough from the tree
Yeah I look at him and I see me
