Verse:
[F#m]The dining room fell silent
I can't be[E]lieve what I just said
I just [Bm]told my dad he's full of it
And I [C#7]watched his face turn red
Well, then I [F#m]should've said, "I'm sorry"
But I [D]matched him shout for shout
I can still[Bm] hear that screen door slammin'
The [C#7]night I called hi[F#m]m out

PLAY INTRO
Verse:
Fist to fist and eye to eye
Standin' toe to toe
He would've let me walk away
But I just would not let it go
Years of my frustration
Had lead me to this night
Now he'll pay for all the times that he's been right
Chorus:
Bridge:
[F#m]It was over in a minute
That's [E]when I realized
[Bm]The blood came from my mouth and nose
But the [C#7]tears came from my eyes
And in a [F#m]memory of that fateful night
I [D]know the greatest pain was his
And I just pra[Bm]y some day I'm [F#m]half the man he is
Chorus:
Just like my older brothers
crawled back in the house
[1] [1]
