Father and Son  Cat Stevens

Father
It's not [G]time to make a [D]change, just re[C]lax, take it [Am7]easy
you're still [G]young, that's your [Em]fault, there's so [Am]much you have to [D]know
Find a [G]girl, settle [D]down, if you [C]want, you can [Am7]marry
Look at [G]me, I am [Em]old, but I'm [Am]happy  [D]

I was [G]once like you are [D]now, and I [C]know that's it's not [Am7]easy
to be [G]calm when you've [Em]found something [Am]going on [D]
But take your [G]time, think a [D]lot, think of [C]everything you've [Am7]got
for you will [G]still be here to[Em]morrow, but your [D]dreams may [G]not   [C]

Son
How can [G]I try to ex[D]plain, when I [C]do he turns a[Am7]way again
It's [G]always been the [Em]same, same old [Am]story.  [D]
From the [G]moment I could [D]talk, I was [C]ordered to [Am7]listen
now there's a [G]way and I [Em]know that I [D]have to [G]go away. I [D]know I [C]have to [G]go [C]

Father
It's not [G]time to make a [D]change, just re[C]lax, take it [Am7]slowly
you're still [G]young, that's your [Em]fault, there's so [Am]much you have to [D]go through
Find a [G]girl, settle [D]down, if you [C]want, you can [Am7]marry
Look at [G]me, I am [Em]old, but I'm [Am]happy  [D]

Son
All the [G]times that I've [D]tried keeping [C]all the things I [Am7]knew inside
It's [G]hard but it's [Em]harder to i[Am]gnore it  [D]
If they were [G]right, I'd a[D]gree, but it's [C]them they know not [Am7]me
now there's a [G]way and I [Em]know that I [D]have to [G]go away. I [D]know I [C]have to [G]go

Excellent! Just a couple of words in the lyrics...second last verse should be "just sit down, take it slowly" and last verse should be "all the times that I've cried keeping all the things I knew inside" Changing tried to cried in the last verse totally changes the meaning. Yusuf's music will live forever!

I'm actually a little bit torn on it being a 7. It's a toss-up for me, but I keep finding myself thinking just regular Bm sounds better.

karachi_chi (report)

Bm7 sounds perfect!

lucem (report)

the intro sounds well with something like: G-C then: 30 10 23 15 23 and repeat. (23 means second string an third fret etc...)

seren1516 (report)

no it doesn't!

bobkosin (report)

Instead of Bm7, D sounds better.
