Cliff Eberhardt - My Father's Shoes



[Intro]
G  D  Em  C  D    G  D  Em  C  D

[Verse 1]
G         D                Em                     C  D
I will be thankful for the gifts that were given 
G          D       Em                C  D
I will not turn my back on the past 
G                     D      Em              C  D
You should not resent me for moving forward
G             D          Em               C   D   G    D
I cannot rectify all the things that went bad for you


[Verse 2]
Em       Bm                    C        D     G
I cannot move where these four walls surround me
Em   Bm               C         D    G
Even though it may be right for you 
Em       Bm           C      D     G
I cannot see through another man's eyes
Em         Bm         C D      G
I will not walk in my father's shoes


[Instrumental]
G  D  Em  C  D    G  D  Em  C  D


[Verse 3]
G                  D                 Em                   C  D
They came here for reasons that have long been forgotten 
G                D   Em                   C   D
An escape from a life that was not their own  
G                      D           Em                C       D
But they've passed down possessions through the generations 
G             D            Em             C  D
Here you will live in your father's home


[Verse 4]
Em            Bm           C    D   G
For is it the brave who destroy the circle
Em           Bm         C      D   G
There are no heroes who gamble and lose
Em         Bm         C    D      G
I do not resemble the face in the picture
Em         Bm         C D      G
I will not walk in my father's shoes
Em         Bm         C D      G
I will not walk in my father's shoes


[Instrumental]
G  D  Em  C  D    G  D  Em  C  D


[Bridge]
Em                       C   D       G
I cannot improve on what you have created
D          C                  G             D
I cannot impress you with the things that I see
Em                         C   D    G
I never have asked you for too many favours
D            C            G            D
I never have asked you to be more like me


[Verse 5]
Em         Bm         C     D   G
Would I be selfish to alter the order
Em         Bm             C      D    G
Would I be foolish to not follow you 
    Em         Bm               C    D        G
But I have the strength to walk past all that you have
Em         Bm         C D      G
I will not walk in my father's shoes
Em         Bm         C D      G
I will not walk in my father's shoes


[Outro]
G  D  Em  C  D    G  D  Em  C  D
G  D  Em  C  D    G  D  Em  C  D  G
