Intro

C - Am - F - G


Verse

   C
My father had dementia
   Em
He lied in bed for months
     Am
Once in a while he'd call me
    F         Fm
And ask me to fly down
  Dm
I told him that I'd love to
    F
But I had things to do
          C    G           Am
And so he died without his son
  F                            Fm
I heard about it drunk after a show
   C
My mother battled cancer
    Em
For over seven years
  Am
I nursed her and I held her
     F                Fm
When time was running out
    Dm
The night before she left me
        F
I drank scotch all night
                    C    G           Am
And thanked her for everything she'd done
F                            Fm
Raising me alone wasn't much fun


Chorus

   C
So dad I can forgive you,
    G
But I'll never forget, 
Dm                            F
Months I wouldn't see you and when I did
         C
You'd be out with your friends all night
 G
Alone and only nine
  Dm
I watched the outer limits
    F
And scared out of my mind

  C
I wonder if you felt the same

The days before you died
  Am
I wonder if you even knew

Why I wouldn't come around
  Dm
I bet if you had been there,
 
There wouldn't be this song



Outro

C                Am
  2006 goodbye parents
                F
For once I'm sincere
                        C
2006 that was my orphan year



C - B7 - Em



Lyrics:

My father had dementia
He lied in bed for months
Once in a while he'd call me
And ask me to fly down
I told him that I'd love to
But I had things to do
And so he died without his son
I heard about it drunk after a show

My mother battled cancer
For over seven years
I nursed her and I held her
When time was running out
The night before she left me
I drank scotch all night
And thanked her for everything she'd done
Raising me alone wasn't much fun

So dad I can forgive you, 
But I'll never forget, 
Months I wouldn't see you and when I did
You'd be out with your friends all night
Alone and only nine
I watched the outer limits
And scared out of my mind
I wonder if you felt the same
The days before you died
I wonder if you even knew
Why I wouldn't come around
I bet if you had been there, 
There wouldn't be this song

2006 goodbye parents
For once I'm sincere
2006 that was my orphan year
