A little difficult. I'm not sure all the chord are right, because the
guitar play principally solo parts and not accompainment. The chords are
a "background" that could be played with a keyboard, or (in a unplugged
version) by himself.

[Verse]
B        G#-   F#        G#-
 Sailing down behind the sun,
C#-       E     F#        B
 Waiting for my prince to come.
B        G#-     F#      G#-
 Praying for the healing rain
C#     D       La     E
 To restore my soul again.

C#-    A2   F#-        B
 Just a toerag on the run.
E          A2
 How did I get here?
F#-         B
 What have I done?
C#-       A2    F#-   B
 When will all my hopes arise?
E           A2
 How will I know him?


[Chorus]
F#-         B             C#-   A2  F#-
 When I look in my father's eyes.
B            E    A2  F#-
 My father's eyes.
             B             C#-   A2  F#-
 When I look in my father's eyes.

 My father's eyes.


[Verse]
B        G#-   F#        G#-
 Then the light begins to shine
C#-              E       F#   B
 And I hear those ancient lullabies.
B         G#-        F#       G#-
 And as I watch this seedling grow,
C #      D              La  E
 Feel my heart start to overflow.

C#-        A2      F#-     B
 Where do I find the words to say?
E          A2
 How do I teach him?
F#-         B
 What do we play?
C#-    A2  F#-    B
 Bit by bit, I've realized
E              A2
 That's when I need them,


[Chorus]
F#-           B                C#-  A2  F#-
 That's when I need my father's eyes.
B            E    A2  F#-
 My father's eyes.
               B                C#-  A2  F#-
 That's when I need my father's eyes.

 My father's eyes.

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.

As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

My father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

At the beginning there is no vibrato, it is actually a tremolo effect on the guitar.
