Walk on the rocks

After seventeen years behind bars
And lookin back on his mistakes
He sat down and poured out his heart
When his son came to see him today

He spoke with a voice that trembled
Tryin to hold back the tears
He said I aint been much of a father
Son, I wish I could trun back the years

'Cause life like a river
And the water is deep
Cross it with care
Or you'll end up like me
Let my mistakes
Be your steppin stones
And walk on the rocks that I stumbled on

he said son stay away from the bottle
Watch out for the company you keep
And hold on to those you love
'Cause love is a mans greatest need

The right way may not be easy
The right road aint always straight
Son, please dont follow the footsteps
That lead to where I am today

'Cause life like a river
And the water is deep
Cross it with care
Or you'll end up like me
Let my mistakes
Be your steppin stones
And walk on the rocks that I stumbled on

Walk on the rocks that I stumbled on
