WALK TALL (Don Wayne) Val Doonican - 1964 Faron Young - 1964 The Popes - 1998 Also recorded by: Stiff Little Fingers. (Walk tall) Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high She said son, be a proud man and hold your head up high Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye All through the years that I grew up, ma taught these things to me But I was young and foolish then and much too blind to see I ignored the things she said as if I'd never heard Now I see and understand the wisdom of her words Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high She said, son, be a proud man and hold your head up high Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye I started goin' places where the youngsters shouldn't go I got to know the kind of girls it's better not to know I fell in with a bad crowd and laughed and drank with them Through the laughter mama's words would echo now and then Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high She said, son, be a proud man and hold your head up high Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye I got in trouble with the law and I'm in prison now Through these prison bars I see things so much different now I've got one year left to serve and when my time is done I'll walk tall and straight and make ma proud to call me son Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high She said, son, be a proud man and hold your head up high Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye Walk tall (Walk tall)
