Lyrics Demun Jones - Im A Man

Out Highway 11 north toward Monticello
Up on the left I was raised by a hard working fella
Through freezing and melting weather
And when I got out of line then I felt the belt leather
But when I followed his lead I got better
Learned how to be a man and never to say never
The first to leave and the last one home
Ain't nobody breathing more of a man than Ricky Jones

I'm twice the man I used to be
Everything was so damn new to me
But I love everything that I grew to be
I'm a Man
I won't say nothing behind your back, I wanna say to your face
Know when to take a risk and when to play it safe
This is a journey, boy it ain't no race
I'm a Man
Yes sir, I'm a Man

I don't play when it comes to my money
My house, my kids or my honey
I don't laugh if the joke ain't funny
I am a Man
I work hard taking care of my fans
I don't back down when it's time to take a stand
You got my word if you shake my hand
I'm a Man
Yes sir, I'm a Man

I can't say my daddy taught me to drink bud and fish
But he did teach me how to mix mud and lay bricks
I begged to miss school to go to work when I was six
Missed the bus on purpose and told mama I was sick

I'm twice the man I used to be
Everything was so damn new to me
But I love everything that I grew to be
I'm a Man
I won't say nothing behind your back, I wanna say to your face
Know when to take a risk and when to play it safe
This is a journey, boy it ain't no race
I'm a Man
Yes sir, I'm a Man

I don't play when it comes to my money
My house, my kids or my honey
I don't laugh if the joke ain't funny
I am a Man
I work hard taking care of my fans
I don't back down when it's time to take a stand
You got my word if you shake my hand
I'm a Man
Yes sir, I'm a Man

I'm twice the man I used to be
Everything was so damn new to me
But I love everything that I grew to be
I'm a Man
I won't say nothing behind your back, I wanna say to your face
Know when to take a risk and when to play it safe
This is a journey, boy it ain't no race
I'm a Man
Yes sir, I'm a Man
