You Had to Be There  Tim McGraw

He sat down, pic[D]ked up the phone
And said, "[Bm]Boy, I'm your old man"
He [A]touched the glass between the two
As [Bm]if to shake his hand
The [D]boy, he didn't budge
Not even [Bm]so much as a blink
The [A]man said, "Oh, come on
Better late than[Bm] never, don't you think?[A]"
He said, "I [D]read it in the paper
Can't [Bm]believe you're 21
Can't [A]believe some son of mine
Could do th[Bm]e things I hear you've done"
He went[D] on like some big hero
Who flew[Bm] in to save the day
And the[A] boy said, "If you're here
To steer me[Bm] right, man, it's too late"[A]
"You had to b[D]e there
And I'm[A] talkin' from day one
That's the[Bm] only time a[A] man should talk
Through [G]glass to his new s[A]on"
"And you'd have to[D] go back
And teach me[A] how when I was nine
'Cause my[Bm] mama couldn't [A]throw a ball
Even i[G]f she had the time"[A]
"And I should have been [Em]learnin' how to fish
Instead of [F#m]learnin' how to smoke
I bet if [G]you'd have whooped my tail
I'd never [F#m]thought it was a joke"
He said, [Em]"Sometimes the will
For doin' wrong is [F#m]way too strong
For any M[A]ama's prayers
You had to [D]be there"
The [D]man said, "Boy, I'm sorry
That you [Bm]hate me like you do"
The [A]boy said, "Dry it up, man
We ain't[Bm] makin' this about you"[A]
"It's about a [D]teenage girl against the world
Who was l[Bm]eft there high and dry
About a[A] kid who might have stood
A whole lot[Bm] better shot at life"[A]
"You had to b[D]e there
And I'm[A] talkin' from day one
That's the[Bm] only time a[A] man should talk
Through [G]glass to his new s[A]on"
"And you'd have to[D] go back
And teach me[A] how when I was nine
'Cause my[Bm] mama couldn't [A]throw a ball
Even i[G]f she had the time"[A]
"And I should have been [Em]learnin' how to fish
Instead of [F#m]learnin' how to smoke
I bet if [G]you'd have whooped my tail
I'd never [F#m]thought it was a joke"
He said, [Em]"Sometimes the will
For doin' wrong is [F#m]way too strong
For any M[A]ama's prayers
You had to [D]be there"
Be[D]fore the boy hung up the phone
He said, [Bm]"They say I'm out of time"
And it [A]hit the man right there and then
"My[Bm] God, son, so am I"[D]
