(Intro)
N.C. D
Walk tall

(Chorus)
     G                               D                  G
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye
       C                         G
That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    C                           G
She said son be a proud man and hold your head up high
                                     D                  G
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye


(Verse 1)
G                                       D                      G
All through the years that I grew up ma taught these things to me
    C                                G                             
But I was young and foolish then and much too blind to see
C                                G
I ignored the things she said as if I'd never heard
                             D             G
Now I see and understand the wisdom of her words

(Chorus)
     G                               D                  G
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye
       C                         G
That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    C                           G
She said son be a proud man and hold your head up high
                                     D                  G
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye

(Verse 2)
G                                D                    G 
I started goin' places where the youngsters shouldn't go
  C                                  G
I got to know the kind of girls it's better not to know
  C                            G
I fell in with a bad crowd and laughed and drank with them
                                        D            G
Through the laughter mama's words would echo now and then

(Chorus)
     G                               D                  G
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye
       C                         G
That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    C                           G
She said son be a proud man and hold your head up high
                                     D                  G  E
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye

(Verse 3)
  A                               E             A
I got in trouble with the law and I'm in prison now
D                                      A
Through these prison bars I see things so much different now
D                                   A
I've got one year left to serve and when my time is done
                                        E                A
I'll walk tall and straight and make ma proud to call me son

(Chorus)
A                                    E                  A
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye
       D                         A
That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    D                           A
She said son be a proud man and hold your head up high
                                     E                  A
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye
                                     E                  A
Walk tall walk straight and look the world right in the eye
     E       N.C. A
Walk tall    walk tall
