Song: Cats In The Cradle
Performed by: Ugly Kid Joe
Submitted by: Derek Rutter 

VERSE 1

G                 C
A child arrived just the other day
 G                         G             
Came to the world in the usual way
G                            C
There were planes to catch, bills to pay
 G                       G
He learned to walk while I was away
G                           
He was talking 'fore I knew it and when he could, he said
 C                  G
"I'm gonna be like you, dad,
 C                          G
You know I'm gonna be like you"


CHORUS

G                           C     
The cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
 C                     G
Little boy blue and a man on the moon
G                         C
When you comin' home son, I don't know when
G                    G
We'll get together then,
C                                G
You know we'll have a good time then


VERSE 2

G                       C
My son turned ten just the other day
G                                  G
He said "Thanks for the ball dad, come on, let's play
G                                       C
Could you teach me to throw?", I said "Not today
G                             G
I got a lot to do", he said "That's OK"
G                                        C
He walked away with a smile on his face, he said
               G
"I'm gonna be like him, yeah,
C                           G
you know I'm gonna be like him"


CHORUS

G                           C     
The cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
 C                     G
Little boy blue and a man on the moon
G                         C
When you comin' home son, I don't know when
G                    G
We'll get together then,
C                                G
You know we'll have a good time then


VERSE 3

G                          C
Well he came from college just the other day
G                              G
So much like a man I just have to say
 G                           C
I'm proud of you, could you sit for a while
G                         G
He shook his head and he said with a smile
  G
What I'm feeling like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
C                  G
see you later, can I have them please 


CHORUS

G                           C     
The cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
 C                     G
Little boy blue and a man on the moon
G                         C
When you comin' home son, I don't know when
G                    G
We'll get together then,
C                                G
You know we'll have a good time then


BRIDGE - Three parts simultaneously 

Electrical guitar


VERSE 4

G                            C
I've long since retired, my son moved away
G                  G
I called him up just the other day
G                     C
I'd like to see you, if you don't mind
 G                          G
He said: I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time.
         G
You see, my new job's hassle and the kids got the flu,
 C                             G
but it's sure nice talking to you dad, 
C                     G
it was sure nice talking to you.


VERSE 5

       G
And as I hung up the phone is occurred to me
 C                      G
He'd grown up just like me
C                     G
My boy was just like me!
