The Daniel Laird Song

Daniel Laird was a man I knew in the Marine Corps. We used to sing this song to the tune of Daniel Boone. I changed the original lyrics since I wrote them before I was a Christian. I actually wrote this version when I made a comment on Facebook about feeling depressed. Daniel said, Why don’t you write a song about somebody that used to help you in the Marines. He was right. I made up a bunch of songs back then, but I think this is the only one I remembered long enough to write it down. So here’s to Daniel Laird, the mountain man.

Daniel Laird was a man

He was a big man

Nobody could compare

To the strength of Daniel Laird they say.

Daniel Laird stood six foot tall

And if he didn’t like a man,

He’d bust you in the jaw

He liked to go in the woods

And wrestle with bears

But he wouldn’t kill ’em

He’d just pull out their hair

He laughed at danger

Fear was his friend

And if you had any sense

You didn’t mess with him

(Chorus)

Daniel Laird was a man

He was a big man

Nobody could compare

To the strength of Daniel Laird they say.
