The Stubborn One

The Stubborn One

Trace Adkins

They say that smokin' ain't allowed in here
But I don't care
Try to sneak you some
Saw your buddies at the barber shop
And they sure fight a lot
Just like they've always done
You look at me
Like you don't know who I am
But that's alright
Cause I know who you are

You're the stubborn one
My great-granddaddy's son
The one who drank his whiskey from a coffee cup
Time has stripped you of
So many things you love
But you keep fightin' on
Cause you're the stubborn one

Remember when we saw Hank Aaron play
I was in second grade
You snuck me out of school
And you wore overalls to Sunday church
You said the Good Lord's work
Ain't done in a monkey suit
You bought your tires down at
Eddie Shaw's garage
You said K-Mart didn't need your dollar

You're the stubborn one
My great-granddaddy's son
The one who drank his whiskey from a coffee cup
Time has stripped you of
So many things you love
But you keep fightin' on
Cause you're the stubborn one

The nurses wonder why
I keep comin' back
They tell me you can't hear me
I guess I'm more like you
Than anybody knew
I can't let go of what I hold so dearly
The stubborn one

You're the stubborn one
My great-granddaddy's son
The one who drank his whiskey from a coffee cup
Time has stripped you of
So many things you love
But you keep fightin' on
Cause you're the stubborn one
You're the stubborn one

Yeah, the stubborn one
You're the stubborn one
