Lyrics

Stand Up, Stand Tall
©2000 Thomas C. Webber

I was sittin' down on my daddy's knee
and I tell you what he done told me.
He said, "Boy -- there's a hard, cruel world outside

Ya gotta stand up, stand tall and hold onto your pride"

A-singin' --- whoa yeah (whoa yeah)
mmmm --- mmmm --- mmmm
A-singin' --- whoa yeah (whoa yeah)
mmmm --- mmmm --- mmmm

Ya know, there was a time, when people seemed to stick by you.
If'n one person fell down, the others saw them through.
And I know, boy, the world's a different game
but ya gotta believe, believe, there's peoples still the same. A-singin' ...

All men are different, and yet they're still yo' brothers.
And women are your equals, they're yo' sisters and mothers.
And don't get hung up on different cultures or skin.
There's only one world God gave us, and that's the one we're in. A-singin'...

Here's a lesson boy: no matter whatcha do
there's gonna come hard times, and sufferin' too.
Just stick to that path, the one ya know that's got heart,
and trust that happiness will follow, if you keep doing your part. A-singin'...

I was sittin' down on my daddy's knee,
and I tell you what he done told me.
He said, "Boy -- there's a hard, cruel world outside.
Ya gotta stand up, stand tall and hold onto your pride." A-singin'...
