[Intro]
E B A B E G# A
        
[Verse 1]                      
        E              B
They say boys don't cry
A                                B
But your daddy shed a lot of tears
        E                     G#
They say I should be a strong man
    A
But baby, I'm still filled with fear
        E                      B
Sometimes I don't know who I am
A                                B
Sometimes I question why I'm here
       E               G#
I just wanna be a good dad
       A
Will I be? I have no idea
        E                        B
They say girls shouldn't be tough
A                                       B
And moms should raise their kids at home
        E                        G#
But baby, I know that that isn't true
           A
Cause your momma's the toughest person I know
       E                        B
I wanna raise you to be like her
A                                                    B
And watch you show the world how to do it on your own
    E                      G#
I'm still tryna figure out who I am
        A
I don't wanna mess this up or do this wrong
         E                              B
I'm gonna be there for your first breath
A                                                B
I don't know if I'll be there for your first step
      E                            G#
I can promise you that I'll try to work less
        A
But the tour's routed, and I got this album
        E                                        B
Put in so many hours, and I just want the outcome
A                                                         B
To be something that I can look back and I can be proud of
      E                               G#
Don't wanna be a dad that's living in FaceTime
               A
But I've got a world to sing to and you at the same time
        E                            B
I won't spoil you, you can trust that
A                                    B
For your sweet 16, you get a bus pass
          E                       G#
Had your heart broken? Been there, done that
          A
I love you and I can't give you enough of that
          E                             B
Get back to community that raised you up
A                                                   B
Read Langston Hughes, I suggest "A Raisin in the Sun"
          E                      G#
Listen to Sam Cooke, a change gon' come
            A
You put the work in, don't worry about the praise, my love
  E                     B           A
Don't try to change the world, find something that you love
    B
And do it every day
     E                         G#
Do that for the rest of your life
          A
And eventually, the world will change

[Hook]

        E      B          A     
I'll be patient, one more month
B                 E      G#        A
You'll wrap your fingers round my thumb
E         B           A               B
Times are changing, I know, but who am I if
        E     G#   A
I'm the person you become
                     E           A         
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
                     E           A               
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up                             
I'm still growing up

[Verse 2]

Don't wake your mom up, do yoga, learn 'bout karma
     A                       B
Find God, but leave the dogma
             E                                       B
The quickest way to happiness? Learning to be selfless
         A                              B
Ask more questions, talk about yourself less
      E                       G#
Study David Bowie, James Bowen and 2Pac
