A Hero Never Learns

lyrics

I took my mom to the Luby’s after Friday night’s football game
The man at the checkout line said “there goes old what’s-her-name”
She said “you ought not talk that way to the people that raised you up”
So I stared him down and I clenched my fist, I said “mama, get in the truck”

Cause a hero never learns
Never tells nobody no
Never says I told you so
It’s a fire that always burns
A hero never learns
A hero never learns

I drove my dog in my pickup truck out to the edge of town
To a place he’d never been before, then I turned that truck around
Ol’ Hank was a good old dog but I had to set him free
I tried not to look in my rear view mirror as he was chasing after me

Cause a hero never learns
Never tells nobody no
Never says I told you so
It’s a fire that always burns
A hero never learns
A hero never learns
