    Lyrics

    Walk tall
    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye
    That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    She said son, be a proud man and hold your head up high
    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye

    All through the years that I grew up, ma taught these things to me
    But I was young and foolish then and much too blind to see
    I ignored the things she said as if I'd never heard
    Now I see and understand the wisdom of her words

    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye
    That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    She said, son, be a proud man and hold your head up high
    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye

    I started goin' places where the youngsters shouldn't go
    I got to know the kind of girls it's better not to know
    I fell in with a bad crowd and laughed and drank with them
    Through the laughter mama's words would echo now and then

    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye
    That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    She said, son, be a proud man and hold your head up high
    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye

    I got in trouble with the law and I'm in prison now
    Through these prison bars I see things so much different now
    I've got one year left to serve and when my time is done
    I'll walk tall and straight and make ma proud to call me son

    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye
    That's what my mama told me when I was about knee high
    She said, son, be a proud man and hold your head up high
    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye
    Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in
