        C
He was a giant
   F            G
And I was just a kid
            C
I was always trying
      F            G
To do everything he did
  Am                       C         F
I can still remember every lesson he taught me
   Fm                     G             
Growing up learning how to be like my old man

[Repeat Intro]

[Verse]
      C
He was a lion
     F              G
We were our father's pride
          C 
But I was defiant
    F                 G
When he made me walk the line
Am
He knew how to lift me up
     C            F
And when to let me fall
  Fm                         G
Looking back, he always had a plan
      C
My old man


[Chorus]
     F
My old man
                        C
Feel the callus on his hands
        G
And dusty overalls
      F
My old man
                 C
Now I finally understand
         G
I have a lot to learn
          C
From my old man


[Verse]
         C
Now I'm a giant
     F          G
Got a son of my own
          C
He's always trying
     F            G
To go everywhere I go
Am                            C       F
Do the best I can to raise him up the right way
Fm                            G
Hoping that he someday wants to be
             C
Like his old man

[Bridge]

[Repeat Once] - without initial walk down, and finish strumming F without going up to G

[Chorus]
      F
My old man
                        C
I know one day we'll meet again
       G
As he's looking down
      F
My old man
                        C
I hope he's proud of who I am
              G
I'm trying to fill the boot 
     C
of my old man

[Repeat Intro] - don't do final G measure, instead end with C strum
