8 Pounds 11 Ounces




Now a man can be a fortress
A man can hold a gun
Cast his shadow deep and long
as he walks across the sun

He can face down many dangers
And he’ll never blink his eye
But when he sees his first born baby
He still breaks on down and cries

Eight pounds eleven ounces
Make the tears roll down my cheeks
Eight pounds eleven ounces
Made this lonesome cowboy weep

Well I never seen your mother
All this time I’ve been in jail
Swore I’d do my time real easy
But the whole idea has failed

Gonna change my life of folly
Gonna get on out this joint
Do my stretch and when it’s over
I’ll live for lovin’ you

Eight pounds eleven ounces
Make the tears roll down my cheeks
Eight pounds eleven ounces
Make your lonesome Daddy weep

Don’t be afraid
Don’t you worry none
I know I made mistakes
And I know I aint done great
But I’ll protect you little baby
All the way

Now a man may show no feelings
He might hide ’em deep inside
He might think it’s weak to show ’em
But no matter how hard I try

Eight pounds eleven ounces
Make the tears roll down my cheeks
Eight pounds eleven ounces
Make your lonesome Daddy weep

Search Song Box



Music by Moonpub Music is unfortunately no longer available at digital stores or streaming on Spotify, Amazon, Itunes etc., but I will upload new album(s) another time. At the moment I am "parking" songs/albums also at Bandcamp. Just go listen when you feel like. All latest recordings will always be archived on this site. If you know the title then use the Search Song Box, if not then just pick the titles to listen to from the songlists.
-- Thanks, Johnny
