Rick Springfield - My Father's Chair

Intro - G - Cadd9 - G - Cadd9 - D - G

(verse 1)
My Father's Chair still standing there
Cadd9   C2              G     D
 All  alone since the long night
Now it's three years on and I still feel
 	 C2 	   G 	  	 C 
He'll come home, we'll be alright 

                Cadd9          G
So where's this healing time brings
 	       D 	  	      G 
I was told the pain would ease
    	   G 	  	  	     C - D 
But it still hurts like the first night

(verse 2)
     Cadd9                  G        D
That night my brother, my mother and I,
     Cadd9                    D 
Were looking up at a distant star,
      G        Cadd9        D 
And wishing we could reach that far,
    Cadd9         G
And back in the house,
And alone for the first time,
         G             Cadd9 
We told each other we cared,
   Cadd9       G
I avoided my father's chair,

I watch my family, we hold on,
  Cadd99       G            Cadd9 - D 
We are strong and we'll be alright,
The clock continues counting down, all the while,
    Cadd9   G        Cadd9      G    D 
And every child will share the long night,


            Cadd9         G
But do the spirits meet again,
               D                G 
Why am I still so filled with doubt,
       G            C - D 
Is my soul everlasting,

        Cadd9          G
And the far distant future,
       Cadd9           D 
When I knew you'd be gone,
    Cadd9               G 
Came too fast and stays too long,
   Cadd9                   G 
Why do they leave the weak of spirit,
And take the strong,

    Cadd9             G
When the world turns sour
     Cadd9               D 
And I get sick from the smell
      Cadd9                   G 
And I can't find no comfort there
  Cadd9                   G    D 
I climb into My Father's Chair
