Lindisfarne - Happy Birthday Dad


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
C  F  C  F  C  F  C  F  C

[Verse 1]
                        F                 C
I had a birthday and my friends all came
                            G                 C
They brought a cake, some remembered my name
                F
Some young kids called me dad
      C            G        C     F  C  F  C
Never seen 'em in my life before


[Verse 2]
                             F               C
I felt their tears when they kissed my face
                       G      C
Said, "Don't be sad no more"
                           F
They told stories 'bout me younger days
    C      G        C   F  C  F  Em7
And life before the war


[Chorus]
                      Am           Dm7
I got no mirror, so I see no pain
                 G
I'm happy as can be
    Em7                            Am            Dm7
The lines in my face will hold two days of rain
                    G            C  F  C  F  C  F  C  F  C
Nineteen, going on ninety-three____


[Verse 3]
                              F             C
They keep me here to make the nurses smile
                          G             C
Think I'll head home in a little while
                      F
My young bride, she's waiting for me
       C        G       C   F  C  F
In our love nest by the sea


[Instrumental]
Eb    Bb    C  F  C  F
Eb    Bb    C  F  C  F  Em7


[Chorus]
                      Am              Dm7
I need no medicine to get some sleep
                      G      Em7
Been good to have you here
                          Am         Dm7
Come back and see me on my birthday
         G           C  F  C  F  C  F  C  F  C
Some time next year____


[Verse 4]
                      F                C
I had a birthday and some people came
                 G                 C
Nice folk didn't know their names
                       F             C
My kids all came, that made me glad
       G     C     F  C  F  C  F  C
Happy birthday dad___
