[Verse 1]
A            D    A          D       A                  D  
When i was just a kid Everything i did, was to be like him
E      A
Under my skin
A            
My father always thought If i was strong and fought
D                   A                
Not like some albatross, id begin To fit in
           F#m    E      D           A 
Look at me powerless and holding my breath
       F#m       E         C#m           D
Trying hard to repress what scared him to death
       Bm    E       A                  D
It was never easy     to be his type of man
          G     E     C#m        F#m
To breathe freely was not in his plan
        Bm  A    D              Bm   A   E
And the best part of me   Is what he wouldn't see

[Chorus]
    D      A       D
I'm not my fathers son
    D       A              F#m            D
I'm not the image of what he dreamed of
         Bm         A              A                  D
With the strength of Sparta and  the  patience  of  Job
                E   F#m   Bm            E     F#m   Bm
Still couldn't be   the   one   To echo what  he'd  done
           E       Esus   A      E      D
And mirror what    was    not    in     me

[Verse 2]
     A            F#m        C#m      D
So I jumped in my dreams and found an escape
        A        F#m         C#m        D
Maybe i went to extremes of leather and lace
        Bm          A    E    A      C#m     D
But the world seems brighter  six inches off the ground
        G          E         C#m       F#m        Bm    A   D
And the air seemed lighter   I was profound and i felt   so     proud
        Bm  A   E
Just to live out loud

[Chorus]
D      A       D
I'm not my fathers son
    D       A        F#m           D
I'm not the image of what he dreamed of
         Bm         A            A                    D
With the strength of sparta and  the  patience  of  job
               E    F#m   Bm            E     F#m     Bm
Still couldn't be   the   one   To echo what  he'd  done
           E       Esus   A      E       D
And mirror what    was    not    in     me

[Bridge]
Bm                    D        E   C#m               F#m
The endless story of expectations swirling inside my mind
G     F#m    Bm
Wore  me     down     
Bm         D     E         C#m               F#m           
I came to a realization and i finally turned around
E    D              Bm       A     D       E  
To   see       That i could just be me

[Chorus]
D      A       D
I'm not my fathers son
    D       A        F#m             D
I'm not the image of what he dreamed of
         Bm         A              A               D
With the strength of sparta and  the  patience  of  job
              E     F#m   Bm            E     F#m   Bm
Still couldn't be   the   one   To echo what  he'd  done
           E       Esus         A      E            D
And mirror what    was    not    in     me
            A     E
We're  the  same  Charlie  Boy
D
You and Me
