A Fathers Love

	  		Intro 

Verse 
        G 
For the longest time, I guess I thought he didn't give a damn 
D                                   Bm              A 
Hard to read, hard to please, yeah, that was my old man 
       G 
On the day I left for college, it was nothing new 
   Gm                                A 
We never had that heart-to-heart, he had too much to do 

tabchorus
Chorus Bm G He checked the air in my tires, the belts and all the spark plug wires D Em G A Said, "When the hell's the last time, you had this oil changed" Bm G And as I pulled out the drive, he said, "Be sure and call your mom sometime" D A And I didn't hear it then, but I hear it now Em F#m G He was sayin', "I love you" A G G G G Gm Gm A A The only way he knew how | | | | | | |

G A hundred twenty thousand miles, six years down the road D Bm A A brand new life and a brand new wife, we'd just bought our first home G When he finally came to visit, I thought he'd be so proud Gm A He never said he liked the place, he just got his tool belt out
tabchorus
Chorus Bm G And put new locks on the doors, went back and forth to the hardware store D Em G A Said, "Come and hold this flashlight," as he crawled beneath the sink Bm G And "These old wires ain't up to code" and "That circuit box is gonna overload" D A And I didn't hear it then, but I hear it now Em F#m G He was sayin', "I love you" A D The only way he knew how

F Last Sunday, we all gathered for his sixty fifth birthday C And I knew he'd stiffen up, but I hugged him anyway F When it was finally time to say goodbye, I knew what was next Em A Just like he always does, right before we left
