Father and son    (intro) (midi)

 

                 G                        D                  C               Am

1. 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 it`s not easy,

                G                         Em                          Am             D

    so be calm when you`ve found something`s going on.

                            G                 D                C                         Am

    But take your time, think a lot, think of everything you`ve got,

                        G                  Em                        D                 G   - D

    for you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

 

                  G               D                C                   Am

2. How can I try to explain, 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  -  D

    I know, I know, I have to go.

 

                  G                        D                    C                  Am

3. 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 I have to go through.

 

                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                

4. All the times that I have cried,

                  C                      Am

    keeping all the things I knew  inside,

             G                Em            Am          D

    it`s hard, but it`s harder to ignore it.

                 G                       D                 C                     Am

    If they were right, I`d agree, 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 know, I have to go.
