INTRO: GCGC

G CI woke up crying late at night
G Cwhen I was very young.
G CI had dreamed my father
G Dhad passed away and gone.
G CMy world revolved around him
G C I couldnt lay there anymore.
G CSo I made my way down the mirrored hall
G D Gand tapped upon his door.
CHORUS
Bm GAnd I said "Daddy, I'm so afraid
Bm Ghow will I go on with you gone that way?
BmDon't wanna cry anymore
G Am Dso may I stay with you?"
G D GAnd he said "That's my job,
D Gthat's what I do.
C D G CEverything I do is because of you,
G D BmTo keep you safe with me.
G C GThat's my job you see."
G CLater we barely got along
G C this teenage boy and he.
GMost of the fights it seems
Cwere over different dreams,
G Dwe each held for me.
G CHe wanted knowledge and learning.
G C I wanted to fly out west.
GSaid, "I could make it out there
C if I just had the fare.
G D GI got half, will you loan me the rest?"
CHORUS
Bm GAnd I said "Daddy, I'm so afraid,
Bm Gthere's no guarantee in the plans
BmI've made and if I should fail,
G Am Dwho will pay my way back home?"
G D GAnd he said "That's my job
D Gthat's what I do.
C D G CEverything I do is because of you
G D Bmto keep you safe with me.
G C GThat's my job you see."
BRIDGE
Em D Every person carves his spot
C D Gand fills the hole with light.
C D GAnd I pray someday I might
C Dlight as bright as he.
G CWoke up early one bright fall day
G Cto spread the tragic news.
G CAfter all my travel, I settled down
G Dwithin a mile or two.
G CI make my living with words and rhyme
G Dand all this tragedy
G CShould go into my head and out instead
D Gas bits of poetry.
CHORUS
Bm GBut I say "Daddy, I'm so afraid,
Bm Ghow will I go on with you gone this way?
G DHow can I come up with a song to say
C DI love you?"
G D G D GThat's my job, That's what I do
C D G CEverything I do is because of you
G D Bmto keep you safe with me.
G C GThat's my job you see.
C D G CEverything I do is because of you
G D Bmto keep you safe with me. GCG
