Alan Jackson – Walk On The Rocks lyrics

(John Swaim)

After seventeen years behind bars

And lookin back on his mistakes

He sat down and poured out his heart

When his son came to see him today

He spoke with a voice that trembled

Tryin to hold back the tears

He said I ain’t been much of a father

Son I wish I could turn back the years

Cause life’s like a river

And the water is deep

Cross it with care

Or you’ll end up like me

Let my mistakes

Be your steppin stones

And walk on the rocks that I stumbled on

He said son stay away from the bottle

Watch out for the company you keep

And hold on to those you love

Cause love is a man’s greatest need

The right way may not be easy

The right road ain’t always straight

Son, please don’t follow the footsteps

That lead to where I am today

Cause life’s like a river

And the water is deep

Cross it with care

Or you’ll end up like me

Let my mistakes

Be your steppin stones

And walk on the rocks that I stumbled on

Walk on the rocks that I stumbled on
