Daddy's Tune  Jackson Browne

Daddy?s tune ? Jackson Browne (album: The Pretender)
A [C]dirty wind blows [F]through the sky
And the [C]Autumn leaves cut loose and [F]fly
Leave me [C]watching
And [F]wishing I could follow[C] [E7]
Though a[Am]mong the regrets that I [Em]can't get by
There [Am]are just one or [C7]two
[F]Unkind [G]things I said to [C]you[E7]
[Am]Daddy what [C/G]was I supposed to [F]do?
[Am]I don't know [E/G#]why it was so har[C/G]d to talk to[D/F#] you
[F]I guess my anger pulled me [G]through
No [C]sooner had I [F]hit the streets
When I [C]met the fools that a [F]young fool meets
[C]All in search of [F]truth and bound for [C]glory[E7]
And [Am]listening to our [Em]own heart beats
We [Am]stood around the [C7]drum
Though it's [F]fainter now
The [G]older I be[C]come[E7]
[Am]Living your [C/G]life day after [F]day
[Am]Soon all your [E/G#]plans and changes
Either [C/G]fail or fade a[D/F#]way
[F]Leaving so much still left to [G]say
But [F]Daddy I want to l[C/E]et you know someh[F]ow
The [G#]things you said are [Am]so much clearer n[C7]ow
And [F]I would turn the [F#dim]pages back
But [C/G]time will [E/G#]not all[Am]ow
The [D]way these days just rip along
Too [G]fast to last, too vast, too strong
[F] [C] Some[Bb]where some[G]thing went w[Am]rong
Or [F]maybe we forgot the [C]song
Make [Bb]room for my [Am]forty-[G]fives
Al[F]ong be[C]side your s[E7]eventy-[Am]eights
Not[E/G#]hing surv[C/G]ives
[C/G]But the way we live our lives
