A Good Man
Emerson Drive
(Keith Follese/Adrienne Follese/Victoria Shaw)


I don't need a whole lotta money
But I wouldn't turn the lottery down
I just need a little green in my pocket
So I can buy my buddies a round
All I want is a place to lay my head
With the woman I love lyin' in my bed
Kind of understated
My dreams aren't that complicated

I wanna be the one
When all is said and done
Who lived the good life
Loved a good wife
And always helped someone in trouble
On the day they lay me down
I want everyone to gather 'round
And say, 'He was a father'
'Brother, neighbor, and a friend'
'He was a good man'

Used to dream of bein' a rock star
And seein' the world in style
Used to dream 'a havin' a fast car
And drivin' that miracle mile
But I've heard tell those streets
Aren't paved in gold
They're full 'a potholes
And empty souls who never learned
Love is something you gotta earn

I wanna be the one
When all is said and done
Who lived the good life
Loved a good wife
And always helped someone in trouble
On the day they lay me down
I want everyone to gather 'round
And say, 'He was a father'
'Brother, neighbor, and a friend'
'He was a good man'

When I'm gone
I wanna leave a legacy
Of love and laughs and honesty
Behind me, behind me

I wanna be the one
When all is said and done
Who lived the good life
Loved a good wife
And always helped someone in trouble
On the day they lay me down
I want everyone to gather 'round
And say, 'He was a father'
'Brother, neighbor, and a friend'
'He was a good man'

Yeah, I wanna be a good man
A father, a brother
A neighbor, and a friend
I wanna be a good man
