Walk a Little Straighter
by Billy Currington



I remember looking up
To look up to him
And I remember most the times
He wasn't there
I'd be waiting at the door
When he got home at night
He'd pass me by
To go pass out in his chair

And I'd say,
Walk a little straighter, daddy
You're swaying side to side
Your footsteps make me dizzy
And no matter how I try
I keep trippin' and stumblin'
If you'd look down here you'd see
Walk a little straighter, daddy
You're leading me

Well he stumbled in the gym
On graduation day
And I couldn't help but feel so ashamed
And I wasn't surprised a bit
When he didn't stay
He stumbled out before they called my name

And I thought,
Walk a little straighter, daddy
You're swaying side to side
It's not just me who's watching
You've caught everybody's eye
And you're trippin' and stumblin'
And even though I've turned eighteen
Walk a little straighter, daddy
You're still leading me

The old man's still like he always was,
But I love him anyway
And if I've learned one thing from him
It's my kids will never have to say

Walk a little straighter, daddy
You're swaying side to side
Your footsteps make me dizzy
And no matter how I try
I keep trippin' and stumblin'
If you'd look down here you'd see
Walk a litlle straighter, daddy
You're leading me

Yeah walk a little straighter, daddy
You're leading me
