      Tim McGraw - You Had To Be There Música y Letra

      He sat down, picked up the phone and said Boy, I'm your old man.
      He touched the glass between the two, as if to shake his hand
      The boy he didn't budge, not even so much as a blink
      The man said oh come on, better late than never, don't ya think.
      
      He said I read it in the paper, can't believe you're 21,
      I can't believe some son of mine could do the things I hear you've done.
      He went on like some big hero, who flew in to save the day
      And the boy said if your here, to steer me right, man, its too late
      
      You had to be there, and I'm talkin from from day one.
      Thats the only time a man should talk through glass to his new son
      And you'd have to go back, and teach me how when i was nine
      Cause my mama couldn't throw a ball even if she had the time.
      I should have been learning how to fish, instead of learning how to smoke.
      I bet if you'd of whoopped my tail, i'd never thought it was a joke
      He said sometimes the will for doing wrong is way too strong for any mama's prayers
      You had to be there.
      
      The man said, boy I'm sorry that you hate me like you do
      The boy said dry it up man, we ain't making this about you.
      Its about a teenage girl against the world who was left there high and dry
      About a kid who might have stood a whole lot better shot at life, but
      You Had To Be There
      And I'm talking from day one,
      
      Thats the only time a man should talk through glass to his new son
      You'd have to go back and teach me how when I was nine
      Cause my mama couldn't throw a ball even if she had the time.
      I should have been learning how to fish, instead of learning how to smoke
      I bet if you'd of whooped my tail I'd never thought it was a joke
      Sometimes the will for doing wrong is way too strong for any mama's prayer
      You had to be there.
      
      Before the boy hung up the phone, he said they say me I'm out of time
      And it hit the man, right there and then
      My god son, so am I
