Intro
Em   Em Am B7 Em

Verse 1

Em
Everyday my Papa would work
   Am
To help to make ends meet
   B7
To see that we would eat
           Em
Keep those shoes upon my feet
Em
Every night my Papa would take me
    Am
And tuck me in my bed
B7
Kiss me on my head
      Em
After all my prayers were said
Em
Growing up with him was easy
Am
Time just flew on by
    B7
The years began to fly
   Em
He aged and so did I

Chorus

C       B7                         Em
I could tell, that Mama wasn't well
C             Am               Em
Papa knew and deep down so did she, so did she...
C        B7                        Em
When she died, Papa broke down and cried
C                Am                 Em
All he said was, "God, why not take me?"

Verse 2

Em
Everynight he sat there sleeping 
Am
In his rocking chair
   B7
He never went upstairs
      Em
All because she wasn't there
Em
Then one day my Papa said, "Son,
    Am
I'm proud the way you've grown...
B7
Make it on your own...
         Em
Oh, I'll be ok alone."
