Father and Son

	  
       G                 D                C          Am    
It's not time to make a change, just relax, take it easy.      
             G                   Em                 
You're still young, that's your fault,      
           Am               D      
there's so much you have to know.      
      G               D           C           Am      
Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry.      
      G      Em              Am        D      
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.        

    G                   D                   C.                   Am      
I was once like you are now, and I know that's it's not easy      
     G                Em            Am         D       
to be calm when you've found something going on.      
            G             D      
But take your time, think a lot,       
        C                 Am       
think of everything you've got.      
            G             Em      
for you will still be here tomorrow,       
        D       G        C             D   
but your dreams may not.

       G          D     
How can I try to explain,       
     C                Am      
when I do he turns away again.       
    G              Em               Am      D      
It's always been the same, same old story.      
        G              D            C            Am      
From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen.       
            G        Em               D        G      
now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.       
  D     C      G           
I know I have to go.

        G            D                 C                   Am         
It's not time to make a change, just sit down, take it slowly      
            G                 Em      
you're still young, that's your fault,       
          Am               D      
there's so much you have to go through      
      G            D            C           Am7      
Find a girl, settle  down, if you want, you can marry      
      G          Em                  Am        D      
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.       


{comment: son}     
     G                 D     
All the times that I've tried keeping       
  C            Am      
all the things I knew inside.      
    G             Em           Am       D      
It's hard but it's harder to ignore it.      
             G          D      
If they were right, I'd agree,       
        C               Am7      
but it's them they know not me       
           G          Em            D      G      
now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.       
  D     C       G      
I know I have to go.
