Am                      E7                   Am
That's another day gone by, son, close your eyes
C                       G                  F
For the moon is chasing clouds across the skies
Am                       E7
Got to sleep and have no fear, son 
         C               G     F
For your mam and dad are near, son
        G               F             E7
And the giant is just a shadow on the wall

Am                       E7              Am
Go to sleep and when you wake it will be light
C                           G               F
There's no need to fear the darkness of the night
Am                         E7
It's not like the dark you find, son
       C                    G      F
In the depths of some men's minds, son
      G                F            E7
That defies the daily coming of the dawn

Am                   E7             Am
Stop crying now, let daddy dry your tears
C                      G              F
There's no bogeyman to get you, never fear
Am                       E7
There's no ogres, wicked witches
     C              G   F
Only greedy sons-of-bitches
        G            F                E7
Who are waiting to exploit your life away

Am               E7              Am
Lie easy in your bed and grow up strong
C                          G                   F
You'll be needing all your strength before too long
Am                         E7
For you'll soon be on your way, son
         C             G    F
Fighting battles every day, son
        G         F                  E7
With an enemy who thinks he owns the world

Am                E7                        Am
Don't you let 'em buy you out or break your pride
C                         G               F
Don't you let yourself be used then cast aside
Am                     E7
If you listen to their lying
          C            G F
They will con you into dying
 G              F                      E7
You won't even know that you were once alive

Am                       E7            Am
No more talking now it's time to go to sleep
C                         G                     F
There are answers to your questions but they'll keep
Am                     E7
Go on asking while you grow, son
      C               G     F
Go on asking till you know, son
         E7               F                   G
And then send the answers ringing through the world
         G                F                   E7
And then send the answers ringing through the world
