The Man I Want To Be


I loved my grandpa more than anything growing up. He never judged me and his life was a real struggle. His mom died when he was a boy and his father left the family. He was split up from his brothers for the rest of his life. He suffered through the great depression with his grandma. He knew hunger and pain. He was a true Marine.

Grandpa, I’ll see ya soon.
Love, Chuckie

The Man I Want To Be Lyrics

Grandpa Never Owned Much
But He Was Rich To Me
He Gave Me My First Bike
And A Thousand Memories

I Heard About His Childhood
He Found Himself Alone
When His Momma Died, His Daddy Left
And He Was On His Own

Twelve Years Old He Went To Work
While Other Kids Went To School
Good Grades Couldn’t Buy Him
A Decent Pair Of Shoes

He Grew Up And Served His Country
A World War Ii Marine
He Had To Leave His Family
And Fight For All Their Dreams

Chorus:
My Grandpa, He Lived A Hard Life
As The War Tore Men Apart
Grandpa Was My Hero
He Was So Good To Me
Grandpa, You’re The Man I Hope
To Be

He And Grandma Lived
In A Tiny Little Shack
But Inside That Little House
It Was The Right Side Of The Tracks

They Spent Their Life Like Money
Drank Love Like Good Wine

If I Could Change Just One Thing
I’d Simply Turn Back Time

Chorus:
My Grandpa He Lived A Hard Life
As The War Tore Men Apart
Grandpa Was My Hero
He Was So Good To Me
Grandpa, You’re The Man I Hope To Be

Bridge:
Through Your Eyes I Felt No Shame
Grandpa, I’m So Proud To Carry Your Name

Chorus:
My Grandpa He Lived A Hard Life
As The War Tore Men Apart
Grandpa, You’re My Hero
You Were So Good To Me
Grandpa, You’re The Man I Hope To Be
Grandpa, You’re The Man I Hope To Be
