Ain't No Son

Album: Court Yard Hounds (2010)
  • I've got somethin' to say
    I'm scared and so afraid
    Can you take me as I am?
    Come what may, our blood is all the same
    I am still your little man

    He said
    You ain't no son to me
    You ain't no son to me
    8 lb. baby boy I bounced on my knee
    No, you ain't no son of mine
    You ain't no son of mine
    Ah, forget it girls
    There ain't no use in tryin'
    Don't expect to get my love for free
    And don't blame me

    You know this ain't no fun for me
    This ain't no fun for me
    All boys should be boys
    That's how it should be
    Yeah, you ain't comin' home
    Nah, you ain't comin' home
    'Til you walk a straight line
    You'll be out on your own

    Don't expect to save your soul for free
    When you're the one who turned your back on me

    Aren't you a sight to see?
    Yeah, you're a sight to see
    What you call freedom
    Makes you look like a freak
    Yeah, you must get around
    'Cause it sure got around
    Don't you know that I can't show my face in this town?

    Don't think I'm gonna get you up off your knees
    When you're the one who turned your back on me

    Stranger, stranger on the wall
    When the neighbors come to call
    I just don't know what to say
    So I put you away
    This time I won't leave a trace
    I'll fill up the empty space
    When I put you, I put you away

    He said
    You ain't no son to me
    You ain't no son to me
    8 lb. baby boy I bounced on my knee
    No, you ain't no son of mine
    You ain't no son of mine
    Ah, forget it girls
    There ain't no use in tryin'
    Don't expect to get my love for free
    When you're the one who turned your back on me
    Don't blame me
    Yeah don't blame me
    Don't blame me

    Shame on me, shame on me, shame on me Writer/s: EMILY ROBISON, MARTIE MAGUIRE
