by R. Binn, J. Moore

"You know, every time I look in the mirror I see my Dad.

G C D, G C D
G          D         C         D   G       D            Bm      C    
When I was young, my Dad would say Come on Son let's go out and play 
G            D          C     Dsus4 D , Em D/F# G C D
Sometimes it seems like yesterday     

G             D      C      D     G    D         Bm    C    
And I'd climb up the closet shelf When I was all by my-self 
G            D       C     Dsus4 D Em         D/F#     G   
Grab his hat and fix the brim      Pretending I    was him 

D             C      G
No matter how hard I try
D                  C       G
No matter how many tears I cry
D                  Em    D  Em/C#
No matter how many years go by
  C           D        C Em D/F# G Em D/F#
I still can't say good-bye

G              D       C       D   G        D          Bm        C    
He always took care of Mom and me.   We all cut down a Christmas tree 
G          D        C        Dsus4 D Em D/F# G
 He always had some time for me      

C      D                 Em    Em/D
  Wind blows through the trees
C                   D           Gmaj7
Street lights, they still shine bright
C      D              Em   Em/D
  Most things are the same
      Em/C#          C      Dsus4 D 
but I miss my Dad to-night

G              D       C       D   G        D          Bm        C    
I walked by a Salvation Army store Saw a hat like my daddy wore       
G          D        C     Dsus4 D Em                  D/F#    G   
Tried it on when I walked in          Still trying to be like him 

D             C      G
No matter how hard I try
D                  C       G
No matter how many years go by
D                  Em    D  Em/C#
No matter how many tears I cry
  C           D        C Em D/F# G Em D/F# G
I still can't say good-bye


Enjoy, STEVE
