    S1:
    Everyone considered him the coward of the county 
    He'd never stood one single time to prove the county wrong 
    His mama named him Tommy, but folks just called him yellow 
    Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong

    S2:
    He was only ten years old when his daddy died in prison 
    I looked after Tommy 'cause he was my brother's son 
    I still recall the final words my brother said to Tommy 
    "Son, my life is over, but yours has just begun"

    R1:
    Promise me, son, not to do the things I've done 
    Walk away from trouble if you can 
    Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek 
    I hope you're old enough to understand 
    Son, you don't have to fight to be a man

    S3:
    There's someone for everyone, and Tommy's love was Becky 
    In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man 
    One day while he was working, the Gatlin boys came calling 
    They took turns at Becky, there was three of them
  • CCCCFFCCCG7G7
    S4:
    Tommy opened up the door and saw his Becky crying 
    The torn dress, the shattered look was more than he could stand 
    He reached above the fireplace, took down his daddy's picture 
    As a tear fell on his daddy's face, he heard these words again

    R2:
    Promise me, son, not to do the things I've done 
    Walk away from trouble if you can 
    Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek 
    I hope you're old enough to understand 
    Son, you don't have to fight to be a man

    S5:
    The Gatlin boys just laughed at him when he walked into the barroom 
    One of them got up and met him half way cross the floor, when 
    Tommy turned around they said, "Hey look, old yella's leavin'" but 
    You could've heard a pin drop when Tommy stopped and locked the door
  • CCCCCCCFFG7G7
    S6:
    Twenty years of crawling was bottled up inside him 
    He wasn't holding nothing back, he let 'em have it all 
    When Tommy left the bar room, not a Gatlin boy was standing 
    He said, "This one's for Becky" 
    As he watched the last one fall and I heard him say

    R3:
    I promised you, Dad, not to do the things you've done 
    I walk away from trouble when I can 
    Now please don't think I'm weak, I didn't turn the other cheek 
    And Papa, I sure hope you understand 
    Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man
