Tell me where have you been?
                                                  Em
You know I just closed by eyes
                                                 D
My whole world disappeared
                         F#
Father of mine
                                        G
Take me back to the day
                                                               Em
Yeah, when I was still your golden boy
                                              D
Back before you went away

    Father of mine
                                             G
Tell me where did you go?
                               Em
Yeah, you had the world inside your hand
                                              D
But you did not seem to know
D                        F#
    Father of mine
                                           G
Tell me what do you see?
                               Em
When you look back at your wasted life
                                D
And you don't see me




(Palm mute)
D                           F#
I was ten years old
                               G
Doin' all that I could
                                               Em (Strum)
It wasn't easy for me to be a scared white boy
       D (strum then mute)
In a black neighborhood
D                                                   F#
Sometimes you would send me a birthday card
                                 G
With a five dollar bill
                         Em
I never understood you then
                                    D
And I guess I never will



D A G F#          G A(pull off)  D
           Daddy Gave me a name
D A G F#          G A(pull off)  D
           Daddy Gave me a name, then he walked away...
D A G F# G D

D           D             D
   yeah,      yeah,      yeah



(palm mute)
D                         F#
    Father of mine
                                                  G
Tell me where have you been?
                                             Em
Yeah, I just closed by eyes
                                            D
And the world disappeared
                         F#
Father of mine
                                            G          
Tell me how do you sleep?
                                             Em
With the children you abandoned
                                              D
And the wife I saw you beat
                               F#
I will never be safe
                               G
I will never be sane
                                     Em
I will always be weird inside
                               D
I will always be lame
                                   F#
Now I'm a grown man
                                  G
With a child of my own
                                      Em
And I swear, I'll never let her know
 
                                          D
All the pain I have known

D A G F#          G A(pull off)  D
           Daddy Gave me a name
D A G F#          G A(pull off)  D
           Daddy Gave me a name, then he walked away...
D A G F# G D

D           D             D
   yeah,      yeah,      yeah and he walked away... etc

Just need to fix where the chords are. They are pretty correct just not in with the words.
