Gm0 D#1 1I wrote this song for my father
A#2 F3 Gm4 D#5 A#6 F7 2Sometimes I feel he never gave a damn about me
Gm8 D#9 A#10 3Though he raised me like he should
F11 Gm12 D#13 A#14 F15 4Did he understand me? No, no, I don't think so.
6Verse -same as first-:
7I wrote this song for my mother
8She had to leave me, when I was younger
9She said son, seek this life, and keep an open mind
10But in my mind's eye...
D#16 Gm17 13I am free now
A#18 F19 14Free to live without my fears
D#20 Gm21 15I believe now
A#22 F23 16There's a reason why I'm here.
Gm24 D#25 A#26 17It's to try and do good
F27 Gm28 D#29 A#30 F31 18It's to try and do better. -ooh oh-
20Verse -same as first-:
21Who will I be for my daughter?
22This little baby, she means the world to me
23Will I relive their mistakes?
24Or do things the right way
25For her sake.
D#32 Gm33 28I am free now
A#34 F35 29Free to live without my fears
D#36 Gm37 30I believe now
A#38 F39 31There's a reason why I'm here.
D#40 32Can I be a man?
Gm41 33One that understands
A#42 F43 34How to love more patiently
D#44 Gm45 35I'll be free now
A#46 F47 36I'll be free now.
D#48 A#49 39And we dream of the day, when our kids can play
F50 40In the streets with no fear of them being taken away
D#51 A#52 41Fathers raise their sons with respect and love
F53 42Handle anger and pain with no need for no guns
D#54 A#55 43If we hope to be free it takes you and me
F56 44To start over here and now
D#57 A#58 F59 45'Cause this world is, the way it is, it's how we raise our kids.
Gm60 D#61 A#62 F63 48I wrote this song for my mother, wrote this song for our father
49So hopefully we can come together
50And hopefully make things a little better.
D#64 Gm65 53I am free now
A#66 F67 54Free to live without my fears
D#68 Gm69 55I believe now
A#70 F71 56There's a reason why I'm here.
D#72 57Can I be a man?
Gm73 58One that understands
A#74 F75 59How to love more patiently
D#76 Gm77 60I'll be free now
A#78 F79 61I'll be free now.
