That's A Man


by Jack Ingram. Buy album CD: Big Dreams & High Hopes


Saw a story on the local news last night
'Bout one more struggling single mother
She was talking about how hard it is getting by
With no help, no money, no nothing from the baby's father

Made me think about this guy I know with a wife and a child
Who's working two jobs just to get by
Yeah, he says he'd do anything he could in this world
Just to give his young family a better life, yeah, a better life

Oh! That's a man!
That's a 19-year-old, modern-day hero man

Those two young Marines over there fighting for their country
Man, they're gonna be friends forever
Well they'd both come back eventually
But as bombs and destiny would have it
They don't come back together

Yeah, the one who lived to tell about
Why he can't even talk about it
Keeps fighting that fight up there in his head
Ain't a day goes by he don't wonder why
Why it wasn't me instead, it could've been me instead!

Oh! That's a man!
That's a you don't know how hard he tried
To save his buddy's life man

I don't know about you
But sometimes I just need a little reminding
To reach down to find some understanding
Find some kind of kindness

Read about a man who said his family had been farming
The same land in Ohio for a hundred years
Felt like he'd paid for it ten times over
With his own blood, his own sweat and his own tears

If he had to he'd be out there on that tractor working
Seven long, hot days a week
Yeah, he's the kind of fella that people get real quiet
When he stands up in church to speak
They know when he speaks

Oh! That's a man!
That's a stand tall, walk straight
Put God's share in the collection plate man
Oh! That's a man!
Oh! That's a man!
