Hello Old Man  Chris Knight

Hello Old Man
By Chris Knight
Written by Chris Knight
CD ?? The Jealous Kind
Capo 1
[G]Hello old man, have you [C]room for a [G]wanderer
[C]Running [G]from his [D]checkered [G]past
[G]No I'm not your [C]favorite [G]son
I [C]never [G]even [D]tied for [G]last
Do you still cuss the dirt and pray for rain
Stubborn as the sun and twice as vain
Think about all you have done
Before you tell me you ain't wandered none
Now your [Em]wayward son has [C]come back [G]home
What'd you [Em]think about me while [C]I was [D]gone
Old [Em]man when I was [C]on your [G]knee
[C]Didn't you think I'd turn out[D] to be like [G]me
Hello old man, the world is strange
Cuts you up and mends you back again
You got your scars in a forgotten war
Mine I got on bar room floors
Well you told me tales when I was a child
Lord they made me wonder and made me wild
I guess I had to be like you
There weren't no war but I made do
Hello old man life rolls along
I'm just trying to reap what you have sown
You never wished me well on the night I left
But in my eyes you saw yourself
you should have known I'd turn out to be like you
