Son Of Your Father chords

Elton John

Key: 

  			               Eb              Eb7 
I'll catch the tramline in the morning 
          Ab 
With your leave Van Bushell said 
       Bb                Bb7 
He had further heard the cock crow 
      Ab               Eb 
As he stumbled out the shed 

     Eb7 
Then blind Joseph came towards him 
       Ab 
With a shotgun in his arms 
               Bb            Bb7 
He said you'll pay me twenty dollars 
Ab                  Eb 
Before you leave my farm 

    Bb7 
Van Bushell saw the hook 
        Ab              Eb 
Which replaced Joseph's hand 
            Eb7              Ab 
He said now calm you down my brother 
      Bb7                 Eb 
Let's discuss this man to man 

        Eb7              Ab 
It's no good you getting angry 
        Eb     Bb/D    Cm 
We must try to act our age 
Cm7/Bb     Ab            Eb 
You're pursuing your convictions 
          Ab          Eb 
Like some hermit in a cage 

           Eb          F7 
You're the son of your father 
Ab               Eb 
Try a little bit harder 
             F7              Bb 
Do for me as he would do for you 
     Eb              F7 
With blood and water bricks and mortar 
   Ab              Eb 
He built for you a home 
           Eb  Bb/D    Cm  Cm7/Bb 
You're the son of your father 
   Ab               Eb 
So treat me as your own 


Well slowly Joseph well he lowered the rifle 
And he emptied out the shells 
Van Bushell he came towards him 
He shook his arm and wished him well 

He said now hey blind man that is fine 
But I sure can't waste my time 
So move aside and let me go my way 
I've got a train to ride 


Well Joseph turned around 
His grin was now a frown 
He said let me just refresh your mind 
Your manners boy seem hard to find 

You're the son of your father... 

Well there's two men lying dead as nails 
On an East Virginia farm 
For charity's an argument 
That only leads to harm 

So be careful when they're kind to you 
Don't you end up in the dirt 
Just remember what I'm saying to you 
And you likely won't get hurt
