The Father's Song

Dm                          F    A7         Dm 
That's another day gone by, son, close your eyes 
        F               Cmaj7             A7 
Now the moon is chasing clouds across the sky 
      C                 A7 
Go to sleep and have no fear, son 
         F       A7      Dm 
For your mam and dad are near, son 
        C        Dm     A7            Dm 
And the giant is just a shadow on the wall 

Go to sleep, and when you wake it will be light 
There's no need to fear the darkness of the night 
It's not like the dark you find, son 
In the depth of some men's minds, son 
That defies the daily coming of the dawn 

Lie easy in your bed and grow up strong 
You'll be needing all your strength before too long 
For you'll soon be on your way, son 
Fighting battles every day, son 
With an enemy who thinks he owns the world 

Stop your crying now, let daddy dry your tears 
There's no bogey man to get you, never fear 
There's no ogres, wicked witches 
Only greedy sons of bitches 
Who are waiting to exploit your life away 

Don't you let 'em buy you out or break your pride 
Don't you let yourself be used then cast aside 
If you listen to their lying 
They will con you into dying 
You won't even know that you were once alive 

No more talking now, it's time to go to sleep 
There are answers to your questions but they'll keep 
Go on asking while you grow, son 
Go on asking till you know, son 
And then send the answers ringing through the world
