[Verse 1]

D                            Em
Son, your father's not all good.
G        D                  Em          D
Still, I love you more than I thought I could.
D                           Em
And when the menace in my mind
G       D            Em            D
Finds me, I simply look to your eyes.

[Chorus]

    A7                    Em
And boy, someday I hope I do
C       A7           D
See the man you will grow into.
    A7                       Em
And when you heart's in disarray,
G              Gm       D       Em       D
Know that your father, too, has made mistakes.

[Hook]

D                          Em7                           
Aaaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah (Oooooooh)
D                          Em7                           
Aaaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah (Oooooooh)

[Verse 2]

D                             Em
Son, your father's lost his head.
G        D          Em             D  
Still, I mean every word that I've said.
D                          Em
Though the truth can truly cut
G       D             Em          D
Here in this confessional with my blood.

[Chorus]

    A7                    Em
And boy, someday I hope I do
C       A7           D
See the man you will grow into,
    A7                       Em
And when you heart's in disarray,
G              Gm     D       Em           D
Know that your father too has made .... mistakes.

[Bridge]

          Am7
I've been cruel to the ones who have stayed by my side,
    D/A#
And foolish enough to believe in my pride,
    Em                                          D
But vanity never could keep me from caring for you.
             Am7 
I've strayed too far away from the trees and the lake;
    D/A#
The innocent road that I chose not to take.
    Em      
But still I can bring you to bathe in the river
   A7                                                    D
To wash out the world long before your heart's withered away.

[Hook]

D                          Em7                           
Aaaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah (Oooooooh)
D                          Em7                           
Aaaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah (Oooooooh)

[Chorus]

    A7                    Em
And boy, someday I hope I do
C       A7           D
See the man you will grow into,
    A7                       Em
And when you heart's in disarray,
G              Gm     D       Em                         D
Know that your father too has made ........ he's made mistakes.
