So this is the tab/chords to Dad's Song by Set It Off from their album Cinematics

I got these chords/notes from this cover tutorial:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNmQ9HVf7yE

However, I would suggest in the intro instead of using your index and middle finger for
the first part and switching everything around for the next, just use your middle and
ring finger on the B and e strings and switch between your pinky and index on the G 
string. (If that makes any sense)
But do what makes it easiest for you!

The timing on some chords may be off in the written thing, but listen to the song and
you'll figure it out pretty quick!

Here goes.

Lyrics:
Do you believe, in happy endings?
Or the mendings, of human hearts?
Oh, I believe, in both I'm certain
Because these curtains, are state of the art

If you'd occasionally, happen to spy on me
You'd think I'm having one sided conversations
But I hear him talking back
You'd think, I may even lack
Some sanity, but maybe, I can't let go



Chorus 1: All single strums

So I'll say
A
I finally wrote your song, at last
E      E2                 Fmaj9
Sorry, that this one came out so sad, every tear I had
D                         Dm                       A
Was shed for the man that gave me a better sense

Of life and meaning to motivate
E                E2                   Fmaj9
There's no short cut to success, I'll wait

For his, guiding hand
D                  Dm
My guardian Angel, until the very end



e |------5---5---5---------5---5---5-----------------------------|
B |----5---5---5---5-----5---5---5---5---------------------------|
G |--6-----------------4-----------------------------------------| Repeat x2

Verse 2:
A
I see a cold seat on the couch
                 E
Where I remember that just four years ago around December
Fmaj9
You sat me down and
                D            Dm
Held me next to you so close
A
How I long for things to be restored
E
To back when times weren't quite this hard
Fmaj9
In the car that song you sang to me
D                  Dm
Never rang so loud before


Fmaj9                                D
Oh, what'd I'd give for just another hug from you
        Fmaj9                        D    Dm
You may be gone, but love will never die


Chorus 2:  *This is not single strums*

So I'll say

A
I finally wrote your song, at last
E      E2                 Fmaj9
Sorry, that this one came out so sad, every tear I had
D                         Dm                       A
Was shed for the man that gave me a better sense

Of life and meaning to motivate
E                E2                   Fmaj9
There's no short cut to success, I'll wait

For his, guiding hand
D                  Dm
My guardian Angel, until the very end


Bridge:

*PM the starred chords*

*F#                  *Em
Tears can't run dry, when I start to cry
*A      A                   D
When I hear people speak of how you'd be so proud of me
F#
And how I hope this song will reach your ears
Em
I battled all my darkest fears
A
I once was blind but now it's clear,
D             Dm
Wherever I go I know that you'll be near


Chorus 3: You can choose to just play the chords single strummed until "Was shed for the
man..." or you can play it this way:

You just play the A tab and the Fmaj9 tab twice
     A (x2)                E           E2
Fmaj9 (x2)
e |--0-----0---------------0----0------0----0-------x----------------|

E |--x---------------------0-----------0------------x----------------|


D                         Dm                       A
Was shed for the man that gave me a better sense

Of life and meaning to motivate
E                E2                   Fmaj9
There's no short cut to success, I'll wait

For his, guiding hand
D                  Dm                 A
My guardian Angel, until the very end
E   E2             Fmaj9
Oh, until the very end
D                  Dm             A
My guardian angel, until the very end
