Cats in the cradle - Ugly Kid Joe
Intro: E | A | D | D E | % | Em D | E

  E                      G
A child arrived just the other day
   A                        E
He came to the world in the usual way
           E                   G
There were planes to catch and bills to pay
A                          E
He learned to walk while I was away
       D                D/C#        D/B     D/A 
He was talking before I knew it and when he could, he said:
G         E       G     D      E
I'm gonna be like you dad, you know I'm gonna be like you.

          E                          D
(and the) Cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
G                       A
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
E                              D
When you're coming home, son I don't know when
G                 E         D                           E 
We'll get together then, you know we'll have a good time then.

When my son turned ten just the other day
He said: thank's for the ball, dad, common let's play
Could you teach me to throw, I said: not today
I've got a lot to do, he said: that's ok.
(and he) He walked away with a smile on his face, he said:
(you know) I'm gonna be like him, yeh, you know I'm gonna be like him.


When he came from college just the other day
So much like a man I just have to say
I'm proud of you, could you sit for a while
He shook his head and he said with a smile
What I'm feeling like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
see you later, can I have them please 


Long since retired, my son moved away
I called him up just the other day
I'd like to see you, if you don't mind
He said: I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time.
You see, my new job's ass and the kids got the flew,
but it's sure nice talking to you dad, 
it was sure nice talking to you.
And as I hung up the phone is occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me!


any corrections are welcome.
does anybody know the tab of the Intro?
