Walk A Little Straighter Walk A Little Straighter
Billy Currington

I remember lookin' up to look up to him.
An' I remember, most the time he wasn't there.
I'd be waitin' at the door when he got home at night.
He'd pass me by to go pass out in his chair.

An' I'd sing: "Walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're swayin', side to side.
Your footsteps make me dizzy,
And no matter how I try,
I keep trippin' an' stumblin'.
If you'd look down here, you'd see:
Walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're leading me."

He stumbled in the gym on graduation day.
An' I couldn't help but feel so ashamed.
An' I wasn't surprised a bit when he didn't stay,
He stumbled out before they called my name.

An' I thought:"Walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're swayin', side to side.
It's not just me who's watching,
You've caught everybody's eye.
And you're trippin' an' stumblin',
And even though I've turned eighteen,
Walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're still leading me."

The old man's still like he always was,
But I love him anyway.
If I've learned one thing from him,
It's my kids will never have to sing:

"Walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're swayin', side to side.
Your footsteps make me dizzy,
And no matter how I try,
I keep trippin' an' stumblin'.
If you'd look down here, you'd see:
Walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're leading me."

"Yeah, walk a little straighter, Daddy,
You're leading me."
