Atkins, Rodney - He's Mine Lyrics

Old man knocked on my front door
With my teenage boy and a couple more
From up the road
He had him by the collar
Said he caught him shootin' beer bottles
Down in the holler and smokin'
I said is that right
He said, they won't speak when spoken to
So which one here belongs to you
And I know one does
'Cause they all started runnin'
To your back forty
When they saw me comin' on my gator
I looked in them in the eyes

And I said, he's mine that one
Got a wild-hair side and then some
There's no surprise what he's done
He's ever last bit of my old man's son
If you knew me then
There'd be no question in your mind
You know he's mine
Yeah he is

Friday night football games
I was livin' for the speakers
To call the name
On the back of number thirty-seven
Just one-forty-five
And five foot eleven

Limelight barely shined on him
But everyone still remembers when
He whooped up on that boy way bigger
For taking that cheap shot on our little kicker
And they threw him out
Aw man, you shoulda, you shoulda herd me shout

I yelled he's mine that one
Got a wild-hair side and then some
It's no surprise what he's done
He's ever last last bit of my old man's son
And I'll take the blame
And claim him every time
Yeah man, he's mine and he'll always be
The best thing that ever happened to me
You can't turn it off like electricity
I love him unconditionally
I'll take the blame
And claim him every time
Yeah, y'all, he's mine
I thank God, he's mine

  1. BodgeBone

    I play hockey and every time there is a scrum I go for the biggest guys my dad just says drop the big ones the other team won't want to try and drop you

  2. Georgette Washington

    Old School...wwwwooooo. Thank you. Saved my ass!!!

  3. Dutch Vanderlinde

    Never start a fight but if you get in one finish it

  4. Elizabeth Barnes

    Joke in the family is that my dad forgot I was a girl until puberty. He raised me as a son. One of the main rules he raised me with: Don’t start any fights, but you damn sure better finish them. Current pansy-ass culture does NOT like that

  5. samantha seymour

    My son is my mini me

  6. Chole Eddington

    My dad: "don't start the fight just make sure you finish it"

  7. destiny allred

    there was this one time in 4th grade this girl had hit my twin brother and i saw her do it and my brother knows not to hit girls so he backed down and i ran up and punched her for that and i got suspended and my brother didnt so that was a good thing and my dad had asked why and i told him why and he said good and took me and my brother to a beach and gave me 50 dallars to buy whatever we wanted and im 7 minutes older then him and im in 9th grade right now

    older sisters this is for you
    if your brother gets hit by a girl you better stand up for your younger or older bros and slap the shit out of her

  8. Michael Green

    My daughter got sent home from school for fighting.
    She had a little bit of blood on her shirt. I asked her who's it was, she told me it was the boy's that was pushing her.
    I asked how it got on her shirt. She said it sprayed on her when she hit him square in the face with her history book.
    Talked to the principal, she broke his nose with one shot.
    Witness's backed her 100%.
    Three day suspension anyway.
    Yeah, she's mine alright.

  50. AponiTheWolf

    This reminds me of my mom and I (my bio dad is a pos so it’s always been my mom and I) and I was always taught “if you start a fight I don’t care how bad your butt got whooped I’ll whoop it again.... but if you didn’t start the fight then you should always win and I’ll defend you afterwards” I got in a lot of fights in elementary school but by god I never started a single one and I always one.

    There was only two times I didn’t beat on somebody for either trying to hit me or for hitting me, first time was in middle school and this cheap little tart had my foster sister backed into a cubby thing in the cafeteria and I went to break everything up and she slapped me instead, it took a whole three seconds for me to actually figure out she dared to hit me and then I lunged, fortunately for her my sister and friend knew what I was gonna do and was able to pull me across the cafeteria before I could wrap my hands around her throat.

    The second time I was in my freshman year history class and I pissed this girl off by responding to her comment about my music being loud and how I couldn’t even hear anybody and I looked straight at her and said “that’s the point, unfortunately I still heard you so I obviously need to turn it up louder” she decided she was gonna threaten to slap me while standing over me and I just kept smirking at her and laughing while telling I dare you. Finally I pissed her off enough she cussed at me and the teacher noticed and sent her to the office.
    My two guy friends who have known me since middle school rather loudly asked me why I didn’t kick her ass as I’ve been known to do and I just laughed and said, “my mom is a whole hella lot scarier than her and if I had thrown the first hit she woulda beat my ass, so I think I’ll wait. “

    By America's standards Donald Trump had a military leader killed that means it's time for a better nation to beat us.

  57. Dustin Swartz

    My dad's rules where never let a bully go unchecked no matter who they are picking on, never look for a fight but if you got no other option hit first, hit hard and don't stop till there down.

    I have a 3 year old son and a 17 year old step son. My 3 year old is just like me. Loves everything I do and wants to go hunting and shoot a big buck like daddy. He also is not scared of throwing a punch. My 17 year old never had a father figure until me and is just like his mother as much as I love them but total opposites.

  72. Kelly Palmer

    I don't know about my son but my one daughter is just like me. She can get in to some trouble. Shes mine. Thank GOD she's mine

  73. J D

    Never throw the first punch? Ok son, I want you to stand there knowing your gonna be hit and let them throw the first punch. Now after that if your not knocked out and can see though your own blood you can fight back.
    I have told my son never start fights and avoid them at any cost. But whomever choses to be aggressive enough to come into his punching or kicking reach to blast them. When it comes to fighting it's not about fair or unfair. It's about defending ones self. I remember when I was around four years old. My brother who was12 years older than I beat me with my own hands. Doing the stop hitting yourself thing. I was seeing stars when he hit me. It was a Saturday morning when he finished he went and sat in the floor in front of the TV. I was sore, Mom and dad didn't see what had happen. I was determined for vengeance. I noticed dad fly fishing rod in the corner of the kitchen. I grabbed it and without warning I used it like a Zorro sword and cut the blood out of him. Mom whooped my butt, Dad was worried about his fishing rod. My brother rolled around in the floor in pain, bleeding but never laid a finger to me again.

  93. poppaluv

    Anyone else wondering what punishment he gave to his son?


    My dad's rules on fighting.
    1. Make sure they throw the first strike.
    2. After that. Kick his ass. Most times after I destroy them I do just that literally. It hurt likes hell.
    3. When the principal comes, say "He threw the first punch/kick"
    4. If they come down the hallway all pissed off take off like the devil himself is after you.
