A c[D]hild arrived just the o[F]ther day
He c[G]ame to the world in the [D]usual way
But there were planes to catch, and[F] bills to pay
[G]He learned to walk while [D]I was away
And he was t[C]alkin' 'fore I knew it and as he grew
He'd say, [F]I'm gonna be like y[D]ou, Dad
You k[F]now I'm gonna be like [D]you
And the c[D]at's in the cradle and the s[C]ilver spoon
[F]Little boy blue and the [G]man in the moon
[D]When you comin' home Dad?
I d[C]on't know when but we'll get together t[D]hen
[F]You know we'll have a good time t[D]hen
My s[D]on turned ten just the o[F]ther day, he said
[G]Thanks for the ball, Dad, come [D]on let's play
Can you teach me to throw?', I said
[F]"Not today, I g[G]ot a lot to do", he said, "[D]That's okay"
And he w[C]alked away but his smile never did
It said, [F]I'm gonna be like [D]him, yeah
You k[F]now I'm gonna be like [D]him
And the c[D]at's in the cradle and the s[C]ilver spoon
[F]Little boy blue and the [G]man in the moon
[D]When you comin' home Dad?
I d[C]on't know when but we'll get together t[D]hen
[F]You know we'll have a good time t[D]hen
[D]He came from college just the ot[F]her day
So [G]much like a man, I just h[D]ad to say
"Son I'm proud of you, can you [F]sit for a while?"
He s[G]hook his head, and he s[D]aid with a smile
"What I'd r[C]eally like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
[F]See ya later, can I h[D]ave them please?"
And the c[D]at's in the cradle and the s[C]ilver spoon
[F]Little boy blue and the [G]man in the moon
[D]When you comin' home Son?
I d[C]on't know when but we'll get together t[D]hen, Dad.
[F]You know we'll have a good time t[D]hen
(Intro (done two times))
[D]Now I've retired, my son [F]moved away
[G]I called him up just the o[D]ther day
[D]I said, I'd like to see you, if [F]you don't mind
He said, I'd l[G]ove to, Dad, if I could fi[D]nd the time
My n[C]ew job's a hassle and the kid's got the flu
But i[F]t's nice talkin' to y[D]ou Dad, it's s[F]ure nice talkin' to y[D]ou"
As I h[C]ung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd g[F]rown up just like [D]me
My b[F]oy was just like [D]me
And the c[D]at's in the cradle and the s[C]ilver spoon
[F]Little boy blue and the [G]man in the moon
[D]When you comin' home Son?
I d[C]on't know when but we'll get together t[D]hen, Dad.
[F]You're gonna have a good time t[D]hen
