    Am        C         Dm         F

(Verse 1)
Am                        C
His footprints are fading away from the beach

Dm                    F
We're not a family to pray or to preach

Am                             C
But daddy's best friend took a handful of pills and

Dm                   F  
now he's at a podium making a speech

Am                    C
Yesterday night after dark

Dm                      F
He carefully wrote his remarks

Am                               C
but everyone said what he put on his page 

Dm                           F
so he threw it away and went straight from the heart

(Chorus)

Am    C       Dm       F   
I thought this was a party

C       Dm       F       Am
But all my friends are leaving

C       Dm       F       Am
And I still want to play

C       Dm       F       Am
Whoa-oh whoa-oh

C       Dm       F       Am
You wrecked me when you stepped out

C       Dm       F       Am        
Cause you're the wounded healer

C       Dm       F       Am
And you're supposed to stay

C       Dm       F
Whoa-oh whoa-oh

(Verse 2)

Am                   C
A year's bottle in a bucket of trash

Dm                  F
It'll tip over the more that it stacks

Am                     C                      
Didn't notice it till now but dad's been moving 

Dm                      F
Slower every time we go play catch

Am                               C
I'm scared of the day when he'll carry a cane

Dm                  F
I carry his dream, I carry his name

Am                            C                         
And when papa is gone he will never be gone because 

Dm                          F
the sound of our sneeze is the same

      Am         C
I say God bless

       Dm             F
I hear your voice in mine

      Am
And I want to stop time

       Dm       F
Like a carnival ride

     Am         C           Dm            F
I don't know what I'm saying but I mean it (repeat)

(Chorus)

Am    C       Dm       F   
I thought this was a party

C       Dm       F       Am
But all my friends are leaving

C       Dm       F       Am
And I still want to play

C       Dm       F       Am
Whoa-oh whoa-oh

C       Dm       F       Am
You wrecked me when you stepped out

C       Dm       F       Am        
Cause you're the wounded healer

C       Dm       F       Am
And you're supposed to stay

C       Dm       F
Whoa-oh whoa-oh

You're welcome! I might have to redo it as not all of it is 100%

The chords sound 100% right. I wish someone had the plucking pattern. I think its more than just the notes in the chords. Still a useful tab though
