about

Had some time off from work, and since this is my hobby, decided to write a song. For whatever it is worth. Wrote this song and recorded it in one day and had a ton of fun with it.

lyrics

CAPO II

Am Dm Am
Sittin' on the front porch, and I'm talking to the old man
F G Am
He hands me the torch, says walk in my shoes and you'll be all right
Dm Am
Said he'd hard dark days, and you're gonna have them too
F G
Take the bull by the horns, says just be a man
Am
Do what you got to do
Dm Am
He was a wise man, I could see was true
F G Am
He said I'm your dad, you are me, and I am you

---
F G Dm Am F G
Feeling now that I re—gret, the days we lost
Dm Am F
What we might have said
C G Dm Am C C/B G
But there's on—ly now, we can make it up
C G Dm Am C C/B G
There's still time to fill, fill this emp—ty cup
C G Dm Am C C/B G
Yesterday is gone, no sense in looking back
C G C C/B G
Oh, the time is now, to get it back on track

------
Am Dm Am
Sittin' on the front porch, and I'm talking to the old man
F G Am
Says what I've done, no I ain't proud, but it's who I am
Dm Am
Said dad it's okay, got me some demons too
F G Am
Said I'm your son, you are me me, and I am you
F G Am
You're my dad, I'm your son, and we are one
