       C
By the time I made it home
         Am
You were already in bed
G
Chubby cheek pressed to your pillow
      G                C
By a bedtime book you'd read

      C
And I noticed that you looked older
    Am
Than you did yesterday
             G
You've been growin' up
   G           C
While I was away

         C
You made a pile of leaves in the front yard
         Am
I guess it's already fall
G
By the look of those pictures your momma took
     G                C
The two of you had a ball

       C
And it made me glad but a little sad
   Am
To see those games you play
           G
I missed a lot of smiles
G            C
While I was away

Chorus:
       C/B    Am
And for every dollar I earn
          F                    C
there's a lesson you learn without me there
     C/B    Am                    F
And every day I'm on the go I'm prayin' that you know
       G
your daddy cared
            C
'Cause the hardest part about workin' hard
           Am
ain't the bills I gotta pay

      G                           C
It's you growin' up while I was away

        C
And I found your note in the kitchen
      Am
It's a real work of art
  G
A stickman holding your stick hand
 G                         C
With "Daddy" written in a heart
     C
And it got me good 'cause I understood
     Am
Just what you meant to say
             G
You've been missin' me too
            C
While I was away

Chorus:

     C/B    Am
And for every dollar I earn
          F                    C
there's a lesson you learn without me there
     C/B    Am                    F
And every day I'm on the go I'm prayin' that you know
       G
your daddy cared
            C
'Cause the hardest part about workin' hard
           Am
ain't the bills I gotta pay

      G                           C
It's you growin' up while I was away

Tag:
              C
You know the hardest part about workin' hard
           Am
Ain't the bills I gotta pay
      G
It's everything I missed
        C
While I was away
