Youve Got To Stand For Something

Song Author Buddy Brock og Aaron Tippin Performer: Charley Pride Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Now daddy didn't like trouble [G7]if it came [C]along
[F]Every one that [C]knew him knew which side that he would be [G7]on   
He [F]never was a [C]hero or this [F]county's shining [C]light
But you could always find him [F]standing up for
[G7]What he thought was [C]right

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll [F]fall for any[C]thing
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a [G7]string
Never com[F]promise what's [C]right and [F]uphold your family [C]name
You've [Dm]got to stand for [F]something or you'll [G7]fall for any[C]thing

We might of been better off or [G7]owned a bigger [C]house
If [F]daddy had done more [C]given in or a little more backing [G7]down   
But we [F]always had [C]plenty just [F]living his [C]advice
What ever you do [F]today you'll have to [G7]sleep with [C]tonight

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll [F]fall for any[C]thing
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a [G7]string
Never com[F]promise what's [C]right and [F]uphold your family [C]name
You've [Dm]got to stand for [F]something or you'll [G7]fall for any[C]thing

I [F]know that things are [C]different than they [F]were in daddy's [C]day  
But [F]I still believe what makes a man really hasn't [G7]changed

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll [F]fall for any[C]thing
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a [G7]string
Never com[F]promise what's [C]right and [F]uphold your family [C]name
You've [Dm]got to stand for [F]something or you'll [G7]fall for any[F]thing

You've [Dm]got to stand for [F]something or you'll [G7]fall for any[C]thing


Now daddy didn't like trouble if it came along
Every one that knew him knew which side that he would be on
He never was a hero or this county's shining light
But you could always find him standing up for
What he thought was right

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right and uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything

We might of been better off or owned a bigger house
If daddy had done more given in or a little more backing down
But we always had plenty just living his advice
What ever you do today you'll have to sleep with tonight

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right and uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything

I know that things are different than they were in daddy's day
But I still believe what makes a man really hasn't changed

He'd say you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right and uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything

You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
