Mama's Eyes

Capo 5th fret

C       F       C  
I am my fathers son
F             C            G 
never knowing when to shut up
Am      G          F    C
I ain't fooling no one 
F       G        C
I am my father's son 

C        F          C
We don't see eye to eye 
            F        C             G      
I'll be the first to admit I never tried 
Am          G                    F       C             
'n' sure it hurts, but it should hurt sometime 
F            G      C   
we don't see eye to eye 

C       F         C
I was a young man when
   F              C               G
I first found the pleasure in the feel of his hand
Am     G             F              C    F
I went down the same road as my old man 
      G       C
I was younger then 

Am              F          C               G
now its three a.m. and I'm standing in the kitchen 
Am         F            C
holding my last cigarette 
Am       F           C           G            F
strike a match 'n' I see my reflection in the mirror in the hall 
and I say to myself 

C           F      C
I've got my mama's eyes 
    F         C             G
her long thin frame 'n' her smile 
Am          G              F     C    
and I still see wrong from right 
F               G      C
cuz I've got my mama's eyes 
    F           G      C
yea I've got my mama's eyes
