F	         Dm	     F	G	F
I woke up crying late at night when I was very young	 	 

F	         F    Dm	            G
I had dreamed my father had passed away and gone	 
 	
F	          Dm	                 F	   G	F
My world revolved around him, I couldn't lie there anymore
     
F	                  F	            Dm	   G	    F
So I made my way down the mirrored hall and tapped upon his door
 	
              F	        F	            Dm	             F
And I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid, how will I go on with you gone that way?
 	
            F	        F	           Dm      G
Don't wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you?"

Chorus:
 		
              F	     G	F   F	    G	   F	F	     G
And he said, "That's my job, that's what I do.  Everything I do is

F	   F	            G	      Dm   F	     G	     F
because of you, to keep you safe with me.  That's my job you see."
 	
F	           Dm	       F	G	F
Later we barely got along, this teenage boy and he
 	
            F	                      F	               Dm	        G
Most of the fights it seems were over different dreams we each held for me
 	
F	                Dm	    F	       G	F
He wanted knowledge and learning, I wanted to fly out West
 	
               F	               F
Said, "I could make it 	out there if I just had the fare.
 	
       Dm	      G	           F
I got half, will you loan me the rest."	 
 	
               F	F	            Dm	                F
And I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid.  There's no guarentee in the plans
 	           F	                   F	            Dm
I've made.  And if I should fail, who will pay my way back home?"

Chorus:
               F     G   F   F	     G	     F   F	    G
And he said, "That's my job, that's what I do.  Everything I do is

F	   F	            G	      Dm   F	     G	     F
because of you, to keep you safe with me.  That's my job you see."
 	
Dm	        G	            F	      G	        F
   Every person carves his spot and fills the hole with light
 	
      F	             Dm	            F	   Dm  G
And I pray someday I might light as bright as he	 	 
 	
F	           Dm	           F	          G	 F
Woke up	 early one bright fall day, to spread the tragic news
 	
        F	    F	           Dm	             G
After all my travels I settled down within a mile or two
 	
F	                 Dm	        F	      G	     F
   I make my living with words and rhyme and all this tragedy
 	  F	           F	      Dm	  G    F
Should go into my head and out instead as bits of poetry
 	
             F	        F	            Dm	             F
But I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid, how will I go on with you gone this
way?
 	F	         F	       Dm	      G
How can I come up with a song to say I love you.......?"
 	
F	G  F  F	       G      F	   F	        G
"That's my job, that's what I do.  Everything I do is
 	
F	    F	             G	      Dm   F	     G	     F
because of you, to keep you safe with me.  That's my job you see."
 	
F	     G	   F	      F	               G	 Dm
Everything I do is because of you, to keep you safe with me....

F      G   F
