B            D#m         G#m
And his love will be his vision
          E                  F#
And he'll take you where you stand
             B     D#m          G#m
And will you stand your life by his
             E            F#
And help the boy become a man



                           B                       F#
And he'd be the son of his father his father the teacher

For the son of  the son of run of the mill run rotten gambler



B              D#m       G#m             E
Will the devil be getting to you as you look back

Over what you've done
                 B   D#m        G#m        E
And what you've done was it for reason or rhyme
                F# 
Was it just for fun
                           B                       F#
And he'd be the son of his father his father the teacher
                  B                          E
Teaching love and honesty being his own man handler



        B                  F#                          E      B
For the son of  the son of run of the mill run rotten gambler
G#m                  E                      F#
Back on the road now you can lose your head
G#m                            E            F#
There ain't no kingdom for the gambling man
G#m                       E
You know the road now and you've made your stand

B       D#m         C#m            G#  
When his eyes shine upon you shine upon you 



                           C#                    G#
And he'd be the son of his father his father the teacher
                  C#                        F#
Teaching love and honesty being his own man handler
