Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
D                      A/C#           G                  
My father would lift me high, And dance with my mother and me and then
D/F#                      G       Gm/Bb              
Spin me around till I fell asleep, Then up the stairs he would carry me,
E/G#                         Asus4  A
and I knew for sure I was loved


D               A/C#             Bm           G
If I could get, another chance, another walk, another dance with him
Em                          Bm                        G
I'd play a song that would never, ever end. How I'd love, love love, to

dance with my father again.

When I and my mother would disagree, to get my way I'd run from her to him
D                             A/C#                     G                   He'd make me 
just to comfort me, yeah yeah, and finally make me do
          Asus4  A
just what my mama said
D/F#                        G      Gm/Bb             
Later that night when I was asleep, he left a dollar under my sheet
          E/G#                    Em   Asus4  A
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me



G                          A          D                      A/C#
Sometimes I'd listen outside her door, and I'd hear how my mother
cried for him.
G                        Asus4 A   Em7               
I'd pray for her even more than me, I'd pray for her even more than me
