Intro: C F Am F 

verse 1 
Am 
My old man was young once 
          F 
Or so the photo album claims 
C 
 Flip the page the baby jumps 
     G 
Some twenty years and change 

verse 2 
         Am 
From the cradle to the naval base 
  F 
A newlywed recruit 
            C 
Through the boot camp of a family man 
     G 
In a loose civilian suit 

Bridge 
           F 
But it was anchors aweigh now 

Singing "Courage, service true" 
         Am           F 
All them anchors will weigh you down 
   C                 G 
If you ain't fit for blue 

tabchorus
F What did I know about it then? C G What do I know now? F I have known the kind of man G Am It takes to keep the vow F To keep the vow

C F Am F verse 3 Am I'd say "Well I just thought?" And he'd cut me off F Saying ?That's what you get for thinking' C G I remember thinking that's probably not the best lesson for a kid verse 4 Am And although that was just something he said F When I see what I get with my thinking C I get to thinking he may have been some kinda genius G In the effortless way he just did Bridge F I learned your word is one thing, You keep it if you give it out Am F But silence fans the fires a man C G Requires to keep the vow Chorus F What did I know about it then? C G What do I know now? F I have known the kind of man G Am It takes to keep the vow F To keep the vow Instrumental: C F Am F Middle 8 Gm I could've curled up in one footprint, F One giant laugh, one giant hand C Until the sickness and the treatment G Shrunk him down to just a man F A shrinking man still tinkering with my old busted car C G When his wedding ring must've slipped into the muddy yard F At least that's what he figured when he noticed it was gone Am F C G I can still see him on his knees digging up that lawn Verse 5 Am Now the flag is folded and the numbers are carved, F Mississippi is glistening green C Another summer's softly calling off G G7 The search for missing things Bridge F But I have found that something kept To keep me company Am F On these nights when me and my old man C G Go digging into dreams
tabchorus
F What did I know about it then? C G What do I know now? F I have known the kind of man G Am It takes to keep the vow F I can only hope as I propose C G To man the outpost now F G Am I'll be armed with memories of the man it takes to keep the vow F To keep the vow
