Fingerpick Am7add9 intro 
He was 18 years of age, born to a dirt poor family 
In the middle of the Texas plains, no matter how hard he tried  
He couldnít seem to please the young man staring back from the broken mirror  
      C                        G                             Am7add9        
So he packed his bags one night to go out and make it on his own 
As he traveled down that dusty drive, he took a glance in the rearview mirror 
He saw the shadow standing there he watched his father wave goodbye gently 
As if he seemed to say good luck son in everything you do 
We hope to see you soon 
F G I donít know where I'm going in my life C C/B Am But Iíve got to find my way in this world F G Iíve done all that I can do here C C/B Am Thereís so much left for me to do F G C C/B Am I donít really know if I'm doing the right thing F G I'm gonna make a man out of myself if it kills me Am7add9 You gotta make your dreams come true
He pulled into the city bright lights all around Cars flying by his old beat up truck Yeah heís doubting himself a little but he knows he canít turn back For the most he used to be is already gone thereís nothing left for him back home So he got a cheap apartment, spent his nights making cocktails At a local bar that was just right up the street It was 3 oíclock in the morning all the wanted was the tips he made that night But the country boy refused much to their surprise, they left him laying there in the street Chorus Solo His parents got a knock at the door the very next afternoon It was a young woman wearing a red t-shirt and jeans She said I'm your sonís wife and this hereís your grandson And hereís a letter he never got around to mailing you, I just thought you both should (And that letter said) Chorus 2: I finally know where my lifeís headed to And Iíve finally found my place in this world Iíve done all that I know to do And I owe it all to what you put me through I just got married and Iíve got a son Dad I named him after you And Iíve made all my dreams come true
