Kate Wolf - I Never Knew My Father




INTRO: F  C  G  C

                                  F          C
It was twenty-five years ago when I began my life
                      Am              D                G      F
The second child of a woman who tried hard to raise us right
              C        E7           Am    F
She married a man when I was just a babe
                    C                  G7            C       F
Who treated me just like his own, even giving me his name


CHORUS:
                C         E7            Am    F
I never knew my father, I only knew his name
                 G7            F  
I never knew the way he moved
                  G7            F
How he talked, or what he said
                  C
Now I'm grown and mama says,
                  G7              C      F  C  G  C
"You're like your daddy, just the same" 


                                         F           C
Sometimes I got to wondering, about this man I never knew
                          Am                  D              G   F
When I'd find myself into something, just the way he used to do  
              C              E7              Am    F
Heard stories all my life of how he loved to sing  
                 C              G7          C       F
And how he would take apart and fix most anything


CHORUS:
                C         E7            Am    F
I never knew my father, I only knew his name
                 G7            F  
I never knew the way he moved
                  G7            F
How he talked, or what he said
                  C
Now I'm grown and mama says,
                  G7              C      
"You're like your daddy, just the same" 


INSTRUMENTAL: C    F  C  Am  D  G  F  C  E7  Am  F  C  G7  C


                                       F                 C
I can't say, that I don't care that he died before I was born  
                Am                   D                 G     F
I get to asking why he did, and I'll probably ask some more
          C               E7                         Am    F
My life's been good and I can't say that I've had it bad  
            C                 G7           C       F
But now I'm seeing years that my dad never had


CHORUS:
                C         E7            Am    F
I never knew my father, I only knew his name
                 G7            F  
I never knew the way he moved
                  G7            F
How he talked, or what he said
                     C
Now I'm grown and my mama says,
                  G7              C      F  C  G  C
"You're like your daddy, just the same"
