Standard Tuning

Intro:
A, E, A, F#m, D, E, A



A                         E         A
My old man could be your dad's old man

F#m      D                E      A
He lied about his age to fight japan

                       E         A
Wasn't long before he came back home

F#m          D             E     A
He had some help from the atom bomb


Back in Allentown where my dad worked
They drank a cold one 'fore they changed their shirts
And every drunken word was his command
The standing order was to understand




F#m                       D
And he don't care about nothing else

A                      E      A
Only what he's got to tell himself

A                   E         A
Everybody does the best they can

    F#m        D               E     A
But my daddy raised a boy and not a man




I was young and hungry when I left home
Hungry just for something to be hungry for
I had to prove that I could make my way
No matter who it hurt or price I paid

I didn't care about nothing else
Only what I had to tell myself
As looking back I start to understand
My daddy raised a boy and not a man

And then I woke up and I
Realized one day
I ain't got nothing
Cause that's what I gave

Now when I look into my father's eyes
We both see someone we can recognize
He sees a young man who has lost his way
I look at him, I swear I see the same

I don't care about nothing else
Only what I've got to tell myself
Everybody does the best they can
My daddy raised a boy and not a man
