Mr. Stanley
written by John Hiatt

Mr. Stanley loved me just like a son
Mr. Stanley loved me just like a son

Now he's gone I ain't got no one

Daddy died when I wasn't half a man
Oh my daddy died when I wasn't half a man

Mr. Stanley took me in raised me the best he can

Mr. Stanley loved me just like a son
Mr. Stanley loved me just like a son

Now he's gone I ain't got no one

Six white horses coming down to Tennessee
Six white horses coming down to Tennessee

In the middle of the night to take Mr. Stanley away from me
