INTRO

G  D  C

--------------------------
VERSE 1
********
  G                 D           C
Today you phoned to say 'Hello'
                       G          C
You couldn't come, you had to go
             G
See a friend, stay to tea
    Am                   Em             D
You thought you ought to just give me a call


--------------------------
VERSE 2
********
         G                   D            C
Yes, you should have rung on Friday night
                G                  C
But just forgot, was that alright?
                      G           Am
You knew that I would understand
                Em                 D    C
I hadn't got an evening planned at all


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
              D   G     Em  C
And there you go again
          D          G      D    C
Making me count from one to ten
            D        G    Em  C
The hardest job I've had
          D     G    Em  G  Em
Is simply being dad


--------------------------
VERSE 3
********
           G        D  
It's not a role you learn to play
      C            G 
You improvise from day to day
    C                    G
The crowd who watch have all been there
    Am                Em               D
And shuddered in that spotlight glare alone


--------------------------
VERSE 4
********
    G                  D
You didn't choose, you had no say
  C              G
I picked you up along the way
    C             G
And love can be a heavy load
   Am            Em                 D     C
To carry on that long, long road to home


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
              D   G     Em  C
And there you go again
          D          G      D    C
Making me count from one to ten
            D        G    Em  C
The hardest job I've had
          D     G    Em  G  Em
Is simply being dad


--------------------------
VERSE 5
********
G                 D               C
You need space to dance and turn
                 G  
I must show that fires burn
    C              G                Am
You make mistakes, learn from pain
                     Em              D
Same mistakes you'll make again next year


--------------------------
VERSE 6
********
    G               D 
And sometimes, do I care too much?
   C            G                C
Do we collide instead of touch?
               G              Am
Do I provide a helping hand?
                     Em            D     C
Or do I hold you back or stand too near


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
                 D   G     Em  C
'Cause there you go again 
          D          G      D      C
Making me count from one to ten
            D        G    Em  C
The hardest job I've had
          D     G    Em  G  Em
Is simply being dad


--------------------------
VERSE 7
********
    G                D
So, knuckle down and do your best
       C                G 
You're in the race with all the rest
    C                 G
The hard ones make it all the way
    Am                 Em        D
The dreamers just wake up one day behind


--------------------------
VERSE 8
********
         G                 D 
When the sun has cold, the evening's come
       C               G               C
You've marched on to a different drum
                    G           Am
I know I've said it all before
                    Em                D    C
But much of life is like a war you'll find


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
            D   G     Em  C
And there I go again
           D          G      D      C
Making you count from one to ten
            D          G    Em  C
The hardest job you've had
          D      G    Em
Is simply having dad
         C       D          G    Em  C
Yes, the hardest job you've had
          D      G    Em  G  Em  G  Em  G
Is simply having dad
