Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Papa  Paul Anka

[Em]     [Em]   [Am]   [B7]   [Em]                       
Verse 1

[Em]Everyday my Papa would work
To [Am]help to make ends meet
To [B7]see that we would eat
Keep those [Em]shoes upon my feet
[Em]Every night my Papa would take me
And [Am]tuck me in my bed
[B7]Kiss me on my head
After [Em]all my prayers were said
[Em]Growing up with him was easy
[Am]Time just flew on by
The [B7]years began to fly
He [Em]aged and so did I

Chorus

[C]I could [B7]tell, that Mama wasn't well[Em]
[C]Papa knew and [Am]deep down so did [Em]she, so did she...
[C]When she [B7]died, Papa broke down and [Em]cried
[C]All he said was, [Am]"God, why not take [Em]me?"

Verse 2

[Em]Everynight he sat there sleeping
[Am]In his rocking chair
He [B7]never went upstairs
All be[Em]cause she wasn't there
[Em]Then one day my Papa said, "Son,
I'm [Am]proud the way you've grown...
[B7]Make it on your own...
Oh, I'll [Em]be ok alone."
