Lyrics

Carbon Copy J. Cerisano

Dirty hands and dirty shoes
He always had the swing shift blues in his eyes
Forever grateful for what he got
He never really had alot
but he never realized it

Everyday we'd live with the danger
That he might not come home alive
But a man's got to feed his family
Even if it means working at the bottom of a coal mine

Well the older I get
the more I understand
I'm a Carbon Copy of my old man

Recapped tires on his pickup truck
always breaking down and full of rust
somehow we made it through
Now the mines are shut down
and my daddy's gone
but his memory and what he taught me on
lives on and it still rings true.

I saw the love that he shared with my mother
how they made it through the good and the bad
Ah... they never gave up on each other
even with what little they had

Oh the older I get
the more I understand
I'm a Carbon Copy of my old man

Well now time passes and life goes on
and now I have a son of my own
and my love for him
runs forever deep
cause when I look into his eyes
I see my daddy and me....

Well the older I get
the more I understand
I'm a Carbon Copy of my old man
Well, I'm a Carbon Copy
a Carbon Copy
I'm a Carbon Copy.....of my old man........
