Verse One:

C#m                     E
My old man is a lonely tree
B                                E
Sitting on a branch in a lonely sea
C#m                             E
When I first met him I thought how
B                            E
Could he have let my mother down

Chorus One:

F#m                        C#m
But my old man he came to see me
E                   B
He put his hand in mine and said he loved me
F#m                             C#m
Well I was burned up with ill feeling
        E
But his eyes they said it all
     B
I forgave him for his fall


C#m

Verse Two:

C#m                              E
And in the summer he’s a summer breeze
B                             E
Shooting at all his possibilities
C#m                        E
He prays to god to fix him up
B                                       E
But he plays with the devil to fill his cup

//Chorus Two//

F#m                    C#m
My old man is good at singing
E                              B
He plays the guitar like Carlos Santana should have done
F#m                              C#m
To be a broken man it hurts his feelings
        E
But we are what we have done
            B
Sweet souls setting in the sun

C#m

Verse Three:

C#m                      E
My old man is as soft as rain
B                                        E
Humming through the night to forget his pain
C#m                                    E
It runs through the family from what I hear
B                    E
But it only draws me near

//Chorus Two//

F#m                    C#m
My old man is good at singing
E                              B
He plays the guitar like Carlos Santana should have done
F#m                              C#m
To be a broken man it hurts his feelings
        E
But we are what we have done
            B
Sweet souls setting in the sun

Back when I did this song I didn't really believe in God, now that I do, I would just like to say that when I wrote, "He prays to god to fix him up" I should have spelt God with a capital G so that it is, "He prays to God to fix him up.
