Hes My Son  Mark Schultz

[Am]Down on my [G]knees again [D]tonight,
[Am]I'm hopin' this p[G]rayer will turn out ri[D]ght,
[Am]See there is a b[G]oy that needs your h[D]elp,
[Am]I've done all that [G]I can do mys[D]elf,
[C]His mother is t[G]ired,
[Am]I'm sure you can u[G]nderstand,
[C]Each night as he s[G]leeps,
[C]She goes in to ho[D]ld his hand,
And she tr[C]ies[G], not to cr[D]y, [Em]
C G D (hold to begining of verse)
As the tears, fill her eyes

Can you he[Em]ar me?[C]
Am I ge[G]tting through to[D]night?
Can you s[Em]ee him?[C]
Can you m[G]ake him feel al[D]right?
If you can [Em]hear me,[C]
Let me ta[G]ke his place so[D]mehow,
G  D(2x) [Em]    [Csus]        [D]                 [Em]
See he's not just anyone, he's my son.

[Am]Sometimes late at n[G]ight I watch him sl[D]eep,
[Am]I dream of the bo[G]y he'd like to [D]be,
[Am]I try to be str[G]ong and see him thr[D]ough,
[Am]But God who he ne[G]eds right now is y[D]ou,
[C]Let him grow o[G]ld,
[Am]              [G]                       
Live life without this fear,
[C]What would I [G]be,
[Am]Living witho[D]ut him here?

He's so tire[C]d, [G]
And he's sc[D]are[Em]d,
Let him kn[C]ow, [G]
That you are th[D]ere.

[Em]Can you hear me?[C]
Am I ge[G]tting through ton[D]ight?
[Em]Can you see him? [C]
Can you m[G]ake him feel al[D]right?
If you can h[Em]ear me, [C]
Let me t[G]ake his place so[D]mehow,
Em Csus D Em,
