Big Daddy Of Them All.
John Mellencamp.
Album: Big Daddy.


Gm C/G Gm

Gm                               D                Gm
You used to raise your voice, so that it could be heard,
            D                                                  G
You used to shout out your orders, and your word was the final word,
Em                       D 
Do as I say and not as I do,
        C                          D
They've taken your picture off the wall,
C                          D                 G
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all?

                                           
Gm                            A/G             G    Gm
You used to chase your women, right into your home.
            D                                      G
You used to tell them you loved them, over the telephone.
         Em                                             D    G/D D
Now they all see through you, and you're sinking like a stone.
   C                                   D    G/D C
No one's knocking at your door, No one calls,
C                          D                 G   
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all?

Break: Gm7 G C/G G C/G

G                                        A/G      G
You're sad and disgusted, Is what you've grown up to be.
        D                                              G
Bet you had no idea, what your dream would turn out to be.
             Em                                        D 
But when you live for yourself, Hell it's hard on everyone.
        C                           G/D    D 
But you did it your way and man you did it all.
C                          D                 G
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all?

        Cm                                 D
Now you did it your way and man you did it all.
C                G         D         D6      G   Gm G
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all?
