[Verse 1]
G    G/F#   Em         G/D  C   Am7
Fa - ther,  son, locked as one,
G *         Am7  G/B Dsus4  D
    In this emp - ty room,
  G       G/F#   G7/F    Em        G/D    C    Am7
Spine a - gainst spine, yours a - gainst mine,

    'Til the warmth comes through!


[Verse 2]
     Am7/E         G/D         C          G/B
Re - member the breakwaters, down by the waves,
   Am7             G/D             F/C        Em/G
I first found my courage, knowing daddy could save,
D/F#          G        G/B   C
     I could hold back the tide,
C  C/B D/F#           G     G/B  C
             With my dad by my side!

[Verse 3]
   G           G/F#  Em                    G/D   C   Am7
'Dogs','Plows' and 'Bows', we move through each pose,
   G *            Am7    G/B  Dsus4   D
Struggling in our sep - arate ways,
   G    G/F# G7/F     Em     G/D   C   Am7
Mantras and  hymns, unfold - ing limbs,
   G *           Am            G/B     Dsus4  D
Looking for re - lease through  ...the pain!


[Verse 4]
        Am7/E           G/D      C           G/B
And the Yogi's eyes are open, looking up a - bove,
Am7          G/D       F/C         Em/G
 He too is dreaming of his daddy's love,
D/F#            G     G/B   C
      With his dad by his side,
C  C/B D/F#           G     G/B  C
             Got his dad by his side!

[Bridge]
D D/C B               C           B              C
        Can you re - call how you...took me to school?
G               G/B         Dsus4   D
   We couldn't talk much at all,
D       D/C   B           C         B              C
   It's been ...so many years, and  ...now these tears,
G *       G/B  Am   G/B  Dsus4   D
    Guess I'm still your child!


[Verse 5]
G      G/F# Em            G/D    C   Am7
Out on the moors, we take ...a pause,
G *          Am7    G/B  Dsus4  D
     See how far we have come,
         G    G/F#  G7/F       Em     G/D  C  Am7
You're moving quite slow!  How far can we go...
G *     Am   G/B Dsus4   D
   ...Father and son?
