INTRO: GCGC

G                C
I woke up crying late at night
G               C
when I was very young.
G                C
I had dreamed my father
G                   D
had passed away and gone.

G                 C
My world revolved around him
   G                   C          
I couldnt lay there anymore.
G                         C
So I made my way down the mirrored hall
G          D        G
and tapped upon his door.

CHORUS
            Bm         G
And I said "Daddy, I'm so afraid
         Bm               G
how will I go on with you gone that way?
            Bm
Don't wanna cry anymore
   G               Am    D
so may I stay with you?"
             G      D  G
And he said "That's my job,
       D      G
that's what I do.
C            D     G          C
Everything I do is because of you,
G           D         Bm
To keep you safe with me.
G         C       G
That's my job you see."

G                   C
Later we barely got along
G                    C 
this teenage boy and he.
            G
Most of the fights it seems
          C
were over different dreams,
G                D
we each held for me.
G                       C
He wanted knowledge and learning.
G                   C   
I wanted to fly out west.
               G
Said, "I could make it out there
     C                   
if I just had the fare.
G                    D           G
I got half, will you loan me the rest?"

CHORUS
            Bm         G
And I said "Daddy, I'm so afraid,
           Bm               G
there's no guarantee in the plans
                 Bm
I've made and if I should fail,
G                        Am    D
who will pay my way back home?"

            G       D  G
And he said "That's my job
       D      G
that's what I do.
C            D     G          C
Everything I do is because of you
G           D         Bm
to keep you safe with me.
G         C       G
That's my job you see."

BRIDGE
Em           D            
Every person carves his spot
    C         D         G
and fills the hole with light.
      C       D      G
And I pray someday I might
         C         D
light as bright as he.

G                 C
Woke up early one bright fall day
G                    C
to spread the tragic news.
      G              C
After all my travel, I settled down
G                D
within a mile or two.

G                     C
I make my living with words and rhyme
G                 D
and all this tragedy
G                          C
Should go into my head and out instead
D             G
as bits of poetry.

CHORUS
           Bm         G
But I say "Daddy, I'm so afraid,
         Bm               G
how will I go on with you gone this way?
G                        D
How can I come up with a song to say
  C         D
I love you?"
G      D  G    D             G
That's my job, That's what I do
C            D     G          C
Everything I do is because of you
G           D         Bm
to keep you safe with me.
G         C       G
That's my job you see.
C            D     G          C
Everything I do is because of you
G           D         Bm
to keep you safe with me. GCG
