[Verse 1]
F                C
Don't know much about you
      Dm           Bb
Don't know who you are
           F              C
We've been doing fine without you
              Dm         Bb
But, we could only go so far
F                  C
Don't know why you chose us
         Dm            Bb
Were you watching from above
         F                  C
Is there someone there that knows us
          Dm               Bb     F  C   Bb  C
Said we'd give you all our love

[Verse 2]
         F                    C
Will you laugh just like your mother
         Dm                 Bb
Will you sigh like your old man
            F          C
Some things skip a generation
          Dm               Bb
Like I've heard they often can
          C         Dm
Are you a poet or a dancer
  F     C    Bb
A devil or a clown
     F           C    Dm
Or a strange new combination of
    Bb           C      F    C   Bb  C
The things we've handed down

[Verse 3]
  F                 C
I wonder who you'll look like
          Dm                 Bb
Will your hair fall down and curl
F             C
Will you be a mama's boy
   Dm             Bb
Or daddy's little girl
         F          C
Will you be a sad reminder
               Dm             Bb
Of what's been lost along the way
      F               C
Maybe you can help me find her
       Dm                Bb    F    C   Bb  C
In the things you do and -- say
          C                   Dm
And these things that we have given
         F      C      Bb
They are not so easily found
    F       F/E      Dm
But you can thank us later
C       Bb           C      F    F/E   Dm
For the things we've handed down
    Bb           C      F     F/E   Dm  Bb
The things we've handed down

[Verse 4]

             F           C
You may not always be so grateful
        Dm                Bb
For the way that you were made
     F               C
Some feature of your father's
           Dm             Bb
That you'd gladly sell or trade
    F               C
And one day you may look at us
    Dm                Bb
And say that you were cursed
    F              C
But over time that line has been
  Dm             Bb
Extremely well rehearsed
       C                  Dm
By our fathers, and their fathers
        F       C       Bb
In some old and distant town
            F      C      Dm
From places no one here remembers
         Bb           C      F   F/E   Dm
Come the things we've handed down
    Bb           C      F     F/E    Dm
The things we've handed down
    Bb           C      F
The things we've handed down
