A little difficult. I'm not sure all the chord are right, because the
guitar play principally solo parts and not accompainment. The chords are
a "background" that could be played with a keyboard, or (in a unplugged
version) by himself.

C#-    A2   F#-        B
 Just a toerag on the run.
E          A2

C#-              E       F#   B 
 And I hear those ancient lullabies.
B         G#-        F#       G#-  
 And as I watch this seedling grow,
C #      D              La  E 
 Feel my heart start to overflow.

E          A2
 How do I teach him?
F#-         B 
 What do we play?
C#-    A2  F#-    B 
 Bit by bit, I've realized
E              A2
 That's when I need them,
F#-           B                C#-  A2  F#-
 That's when I need my father's eyes.
B            E    A2  F#-

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.

As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

My father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
