G Em C D GI woke up crying late at night when I was very young
C G Am DI had dreamed my father had passed away and gone
G Em C D GMy world revolved around him, I couldn't lie there anymore
C G Am D GSo I made my way down the mirrored hall and tapped upon his door
C G Am GAnd I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid, how will I go on with you gone that way?
C G Am DDon't wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you?"
Chorus:
C D G C D G C DAnd he said, "That's my job, that's what I do. Everything I do is
G C D Em C D Gbecause of you, to keep you safe with me. That's my job you see."
G Em C D GLater we barely got along, this teenage boy and he
C G Am DMost of the fights it seems were over different dreams we each held for me
G Em C D GHe wanted knowledge and learning, I wanted to fly out West
C GSaid, "I could make it out there if I just had the fare.
Am D GI got half, will you loan me the rest."
C G Am GAnd I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid. There's no guarentee in the plans
C G AmI've made. And if I should fail, who will pay my way back home?"
Chorus:
C D G C D G C DAnd he said, "That's my job, that's what I do. Everything I do is
G C D Em C D Gbecause 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 DAnd I pray someday I might light as bright as he
G Em C D GWoke up early one bright fall day, to spread the tragic news
C G Am DAfter 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 GShould go into my head and out instead as bits of poetry
C G Am GBut I said, "Daddy, I'm so afraid, how will I go on with you gone this
way?
C G Am DHow 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 Gbecause of you, to keep you safe with me. That's my job you see."
C D G C D EmEverything I do is because of you, to keep you safe with me....
C D G
