I Used to Push Him Around ©2010 Robert George

Phillip lived just down the street
His front yard was full of weeds
And his father’s empty beer cans were like garden gnomes
I was high school quarterback
And when Phil tried out for track
We’d all see him run those rolling hills and roads alone
He seemed weird and wore those ragged shorts
Didn’t fit in with my football friends
And we’d pull up in our hot rod Fords
And I’m still ashamed that way back when

I used to push him around
Here and there all over town
Life was tough for him because
He had troubles as it was
He deserved much better than that
O but life is crazy and sad
And I used to push him around


Soon as Phillip turned eighteen
He became a mean Marine
He was gone for years fightin’ for our liberties
Then I saw him at the store
Fumblin’ for a can of corn
In a wheelchair cos he’d lost his freedom at the knees
I came up and lent a helping hand
Went outside and jawed awhile with him
Grabbed some tacos at a nearby stand
And till he got used to those metal limbs

I used to push him around
Here and there all over town
Life was tough for him because
He had troubles as it was
He deserved much better than that
O but life is crazy and sad
And I used to push him around


First he fought to walk and then to run
Free and strong out in the morning sun
He’d been pushing himself to succeed
Ever since we were kids on the street


I used to push him around
Here and there all over town
Life was tough for him because
He had troubles as it was
He deserved much better than that
O but life is crazy and sad
And I used to push him around


Now I treat my neighbors like my brothers
And I push myself instead of others…
