Father:

         F#             Bbm   
It's not time to make a change
       B            Abm 
Just relax, take it easy
             F#                 Ebm  
You're still young, that's your fault
           Abm                   C#6
There's so much you have to know    

       F#           Bbm 
Find a girl, settle down
            B         Abm  
If you want   you can marry
        F#         Ebm           Abm7   C#
Look at me,   I am old,  but I'm happy    

      F#                C# 
I was once like you are now
       B                 Abm 
And I know that it's not easy
      F#                 Ebm  
To be calm   when you've found
                Abm7  C#
Something going on      

              F#                C#
But take your time, think a lot   
              B                 Abm
Why, think of everything you've got
              F#             Ebm   
For you will still be here tomorrow
          C#        F#   F#4 F# F#4
But your dreams may not            

Son:

        F#          Bbm 
How can I try to explain
       B                Abm  
When I do he turns away again
     F#              Ebm 
It's always been the same
          Abm7  C#
Same old story    

         F#             Bbm 
From the moment I could talk
      B          Abm   
I was ordered to listen
              F#        Ebm 
Now there's a way and I know
       C#      F#     
That I have to go away
  C#       B       F#  F#4 F# F#4
I know   I have to go            

Bridge:
F# C# B Abm F# Ebm Abm7 C#
F# C# B Abm F# Ebm C# F# C# B F# F#4 F# F#4

Father:

         F#             C#    
It's not time to make a change
         B             Abm   
Just sit down, take it slowly
             F#                 Ebm  
You're still young, that's your fault
           Abm7                  C#   
There's so much you have to go through

       F#           C#  
Find a girl, settle down
           B         Abm  
If you want  you can marry
        F#         Ebm           Abm7  C#
Look at me,   I am old,  but I'm happy   

Son:

        F#            Bbm 
All the times that I cried
        B                     Abm   
Keeping all the things I knew inside
     F#             Ebm         Abm7    C#
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it   
             F#           Bbm
If they were right, I'd agree
         B                 Abm
But it's them you know not me 
              F#         Ebm 
Now there's a way  and I know
       C#      F#      C#
That I have to go away   
          B       F#
I know  I have to go
