My mama got married to someone I barely knew
They had me then they had my sister too
I was too young to understand why he left
But how it broke my mama's heart, I'll never forget
It was three years before she met somebody new
And though I didn't have much to compare him to

[Chorus]
He was the best man my mama ever loved
Not the kind that walks away but the kind that don't give up
Devoted and true, someone to look up to
Even a boy of eight could understand
He was the best man

He called me his son and I called him dad
He was like no friend that I had ever had
He taught me how to drive a nail and build a go-cart
And how to love a woman with all of my heart
And one night we watched him get down on one knee
And ask mama to be his wife, and he asked me...

To be the best man and I stood by his side
As he lifted the veil of that beautiful bride
He said I do, then she did too
And she walked back down the aisle holding hands
With the best man

He said I do, then she did too
And she walked back down the aisle holding hands
With the best man

Dad you're still the best man
