About this tab version
One new Chord and one added C# Bass note. Repositioned Chords over lyrics. Included part of the song that was missing. Added [Intro, Verses and Choruses]. Was this info helpful? Yes No
D  A/C#  Bm  G

[Verse 1]
   D              A/C#          Bm
I don't know much about you,  I don't
know who you are
              D          A/C#
And we'd been doing fine without you,
             Bm         G
but we could only go so far
   D                 A/C#
I don't know why you chose us, were you
Bm            G
watching from above
         D                  A/C#
Is there someone there that knows us
          Bm           G   D A/C# Bm G
said we'd give you all our love

[Verse 2]
         D                    A/C#
Will you laugh just like your mother will
    Bm                  G
you sigh like your old man
                 D          A/C#
Will some things skip a generation like I've
Bm               G
heard they often can

          A          Bm       D      A/C#
Are you a poet or a dancer, a devil or a
     D           A/C#  Bm     A6
Or a strange new combination of the
G            A      D  A/C# Bm G
things we've handed down

[Verse 3]
  D                 A/C#
I wonder who you'll look like, will your
 Bm                 G
hair fall down and curl
 D            A/C#            Bm
Will you be a momma's boy or daddy's
little girl
         D         A/C#
Will you be a sad reminder of what's been
Bm             G
lost along the way
      D               A/C#
Maybe you can help me find her in the
Bm                 G
things you do and say

          A                   Bm
And these things that we have given you
         D      A/C#    G
They are not so easily found
     D       A/C#     Bm
But you can thank us later
A6       G            A      D  A/C# Bm G
For the things we've handed down

[Verse 4]
            D             A/C#
You may not always be so grateful for the
Bm                G
way that you were made
           D                A/C#
Maybe some feature of your father's that
      Bm              G
you'd gladly sell or trade
    D                A/C#          Bm
And one day you may look at us and say
that you were cursed
     D             A/C#
But over time that line has been
Bm                G
extremely well rehearsed

        A                 Bm
By our fathers and their fathers in some
D        A/C#    G
old and distant town
            D      A/C#    Bm
From places no one here remembers
A6       G            A       D  A/C# Bm G
come the things we've handed down
