G	         Em	     C	D	G
I woke up crying late at night when I was very young	 	 

C	         G    Am	            D
I had dreamed my father had passed away and gone	 
 	
G	          Em	                 C	   D	G
My world revolved around him, I couldn't lie there anymore
     
C	                  G	            Am	   D	    G
So I made my way down the mirrored hall and tapped upon his door
 	
              C	        G	            Am	             G
And I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid, how will I go on with you gone that way?
 	
            C	        G	           Am      D
Don't wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you?"

Chorus:
 		
              C	     D	G   C	    D	   G	C	     D
And he said, "That's my job, that's what I do.  Everything I do is

G	   C	            D	      Em   C	     D	     G
because of you, to keep you safe with me.  That's my job you see."
 	
G	           Em	       C	D	G
Later we barely got along, this teenage boy and he
 	
            C	                      G	               Am	        D
Most of the fights it seems were over different dreams we each held for me
 	
G	                Em	    C	       D	G
He wanted knowledge and learning, I wanted to fly out West
 	
               C	               G
Said, "I could make it 	out there if I just had the fare.
 	
       Am	      D	           G
I got half, will you loan me the rest."	 
 	
               C	G	            Am	                G
And I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid.  There's no guarentee in the plans
 	           C	                   G	            Am
I've made.  And if I should fail, who will pay my way back home?"

Chorus:
               C     D   G   C	     D	     G   C	    D
And he said, "That's my job, that's what I do.  Everything I do is

G	   C	            D	      Em   C	     D	     G
because of you, to keep you safe with me.  That's my job you see."
 	
Em	        D	            C	      D	        G
   Every person carves his spot and fills the hole with light
 	
      C	             Em	            C	   Am  D
And I pray someday I might light as bright as he	 	 
 	
G	           Em	           C	          D	 G
Woke up	 early one bright fall day, to spread the tragic news
 	
        C	    G	           Am	             D
After all my travels I settled down within a mile or two
 	
G	                 Em	        C	      D	     G
   I make my living with words and rhyme and all this tragedy
 	  C	           G	      Am	  D    G
Should go into my head and out instead as bits of poetry
 	
             C	        G	            Am	             G
But I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid, how will I go on with you gone this
way?
 	C	         G	       Am	      D
How can I come up with a song to say I love you.......?"
 	
C	D  G  C	       D      G	   C	        D
"That's my job, that's what I do.  Everything I do is
 	
G	    C	             D	      Em   C	     D	     G
because of you, to keep you safe with me.  That's my job you see."
 	
C	     D	   G	      C	               D	 Em
Everything I do is because of you, to keep you safe with me....

C      D   G
