Verse:
F#m 
The dining room fell silent 
          E 
I can't believe what I just said 
       Bm 
I just told my dad he's full of it 
      C#7 
And I watched his face turn red 
             F#m
Well, then I should've said, "I'm sorry" 
      D 
But I matched him shout for shout 
           Bm 
I can still hear that screen door slammin' 
    C#7              F#m
The night I called him out

Chorus: 
          A                   E   Bm                  F#m
He said, "Son, it's gonna hurt me more than it hurts you"

        Bm                 E                  C#7
But somehow I couldn't help but have my doubts

           A             E             Bm                F#m
'Cause I'd seen my older brothers crawl back in the house

     Bm                   E         F#m
Each time they called the old man out 

PLAY INTRO

Verse:
Fist to fist and eye to eye 
Standin' toe to toe 
He would've let me walk away  
But I just would not let it go 
Years of my frustration  
Had lead me to this night 
Now he'll pay for all the times that he's been right 
 
Chorus: 
 
Bridge: 
F#m
It was over in a minute 

       E
That's when I realized 

Bm
The blood came from my mouth and nose 

        C#7
But the tears came from my eyes 

         F#m
And in a memory of that fateful night 

  D
I know the greatest pain was his 

              Bm             F#m
And I just pray some day I'm half the man he is 
 
Chorus: 
 
Just like my older brothers 
crawled back in the house
