Larsen, Blaine - The Best Man Lyrics

My mama got married to someone I barely knew
They had me and then they had my sister too
I was too young to understand why he left
But how it broke 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

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 my dad
He was like no friend that I had ever had
He taught me how to drive a nail and how to build a go-cart
And how to love a women with all of my heart
One night we watched him get down on one knee
And ask mama to be his wife, then 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, and then she did too
And she walked back down the aisle holding hands
With the best man

Larsen, Blaine The Best Man Comments
  1. Nathan Holmes

    I'll never understand why people leave their children it's not natural it's unhuman to do that cuz anyone have a scientific explanation my people leave their children behind I would like to hear a good one because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would rather die a horrible death full of lots of pain and torture before I put my child in danger or leave them or forsake them

  2. Charles Clark

    On the song I can make my mom and dad cry because my mama died at her house so they tried to get her got of the house because my mom and dad.

  7. Sean Hall

    This applied to me at one time after my mom remarried, but once she died, my stepdad stabbed me in the back by kicking me to the curb.

  8. mark layton

    It’s a good voice but too much twang - and the lyrics are awful “my dog died and my wife left me “

    I hope one day my little girl will have this since her sperm donor turned out to be an ass who walked away and has never looked back....and so she also sees what a real man, father, and husband should look like

    Victor Smith

    Not all of us are pieces of shit like that. I have seen my fair share of dirtbags hopefully you and your daughter find someone.


    It's amazing. So many assholes out there get the girls.. While there are so many good ones that NO ONE cares to take a second glance at.

  51. Elizabeth Morgan

    Many step-Dads are a whole lot better Dads than some love um and leave um "sperm-dad".  Good riddance to some sorry lout who would leave his family!  Take the garbage to the truck!  Girls, there's a lot of good men out there who know what commitment is.  Hope you find one half as good as I did.

    Johnathan Thompson

    Elizabeth, I had a dad who just died in March, so don't tell me that my dad did not love me, because he did.. You need to have some respect for people who do not have a dad like me.

    Elizabeth Morgan

    Jonathan, so sorry for the loss of your dad. I'm sure he loved you very much. You may have misunderstood my comment above. I was referring to my son's dad who left us to chase after young girls. My son was only 9 years old, & got down on his knees & begged his dad not to leave, crying that he didn't want his dad to leave. His dad kicked him off like a dog and said, "Life's tough. You don't always get what you want." I can still hear my son screaming as his dad walked out the door. I wasn't disrespecting people who don't have a dad like you. My heart breaks for all the children and mothers who are left behind to struggle in poverty like we were. When I said in my comment, "Hope you find one half as good as I did", I was referring to my son's step-dad who I married after my son and I suffered for 7 long years. Peace.

    Johnathan Thompson

    I'm not mad at you, it's just that I miss my dad so much.

    Elizabeth Morgan

    I know you miss him. I'm praying for you to be comforted. I still miss my mom and she's been gone 4 years. It helps to remember the good times and try to be happy. Thanks for writing back, cause I didn't want to have hurt your feelings.

    Johnathan Thompson

    I just need somebody that I can talk to about this. Thanks for being there for me.

  52. Michael Ammerman

    Excelente cantor country.

  65. Denise L.

    I never met my dad and the man in my life as a father is my uncle. He is more of a father to me. Uncle, you are the best man.

  66. Denabella

    My momma is getting married to the best man in almost a month. Maybe I'll talk her into letting me sing this.

  67. hiddenhearts13

    I have a fantastic dad; he has always been there for me, other than certain memorable moments, and I'm not going to lie and say those didn't hurt. The situation was different, yes, because hewas an alcoholic and couldn't have him around me and my sister anymore, but god knows it broke her heart and his too. And it was like that for years, you know--dad drank, and me, I was too little to understand it, just that he wanted me sometimes and I'd go to his house. I'll never forget watching him stumble back into the bar, looking as his ankles twisted with every step because he couldn't see straight. Mom dated a lowlife after that, nice guy he seemed, til he broke the window in her car with a beer bottle and raced to our home where my sister was home alone, asleep (I was with my dad that night). And after that, there was Michael. Michael, who loved my mom and had been friends with her for ten years, never married, Michael who barely knew me and still cared enough. Michael, who will tell anybody who will listen that he has two beautiful daughters, whose proud as a punch that I'm in the IB program and surviving, whose showing everybody the letters I'm getting from colleges and god he needs to put away those pictures, but he truly is the best man. He's there, he's my second father; and yet, he would never step on my dads toes. It's so awkward on the phone, because neither of us know whether to say I love you or not as we hang up, But he's there to drive across town to get me in the middle of the night because my dad's drinking again and I don't want to be around it, who's so damn silly he drove to the wrong school to get me two years ago and still chuckles when I tell on him about it. I'm lucky. I haven't had the best past with my dad but he's there and he's a good dad I promise and he put things back together so thigns are good now on that front, but I'm still lucky. I have two dads. And I really hope neither of them suddenly decide to look this song up on YouTube because that owuld be bloody embarassing to see this.

STOP buying demon angel products & CD's/DVD's, STOP going to their concerts, STOP going 2 their evil movies, STOP buying demon clothing, STOP watching their evil TV shows,minimize what U buy at the demon grocery store. STOP DONATING! Stand up against dirty angels cancer causing acts. Show Jesus/God you're willing 2 stand up for what's right & GOOD!!

  80. Cody Blackford

    What happened to his career? Why does he only have two songs out there?

    cat' slife

    He went on to bible studies I believe he is a preacher now.

  81. Matthew Johnston

    I didn't have a step dad, my father was always there.
    But, it's been a year since he died. I still remember watching him drive away on his motorbike, saying that he'd see us in a few hours. I still remember my grandfather handing me the license plate, the only salvageable part from that bike.
    I still remember that my father truly was, and always will be, whether or not he's here right now, the best man that ever was or will be in my life.

  82. Joey Ferrell

    I totally understand how you feel brother. I was 9 when my "step"father came into my life. I rarely used the step part. On January 24, 2013 he passed away and this song makes me think of my dad, not my stepdad

  83. Shawn Mollett

    I never new my real dad but i probably better off now then i would be with him to be honest.

  84. Logan Catlett

    This reminds me of me and my (step) Dad Kenneth

  85. Sharon Horan

    im thankful

  86. Denice Sanders

    Great song. I really love Mr. Larsen's voice and the songs that he sings. The feeling he puts into the words really makes you feel the song and it becomes a part of you.

  87. missy platz

    I thank God that my dad was brought to us! No better man could have ever married my mom and taken on my brother and I. I LOVE YOU DADDY, Your daughter Missy

  88. jordon hitsman

  92. Locallore01

    He Says, " Congratulations, and I hope everything goes well." :)

  93. Jessica LaRosa

    @Amanda Schmitting I agree completely

  94. Jessica LaRosa

    @AlanahRenee1 pray for her. My dad was abusive and after having a stepdad who didn't get along with me now I have a new step dad who considers me his princesses but we prayed for the longest time. God has a plan for everything but he chooses to change things and out and take people in and out of your life at his time.

  95. Kimberly B

    Thanks... It means alot to hear that, something simple like that can really make people feel better. Thank you.

  96. Jason Hartless

    Keep your head held high, if he doesn't know what a great thing he has he will when it's gone and please believe me when I say it's not you.

  97. Kimberly B

    So hard to be beyond perfect... I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, I analyze everything I do it doesn't make sense. Why am I so hated...

  98. Kimberly B

    My husband left me and our kids. Its so hard. I don't understand what's wrong with me. He just started talking to me again after 3 months of nothing. I'm trying to prove to be a good wife, I always dress up for him, always kind forgiving, I cook my best, I do everything my best and he still is so mean to me I don't understand I try so hard... I sometimes don't want to go on anymore if it wasn't for my kids... I've been crying all day. I'm sorry for being "annoying" and everything else. I try so
