Am7  D7  Gmaj7, E7sus4  E7,

Verse 1:

Amaj7
 Brother;
Am7                   D7      Gmaj7        E7sus4    E7
 There's so much that I could never say to your face.
    Amaj7
But by now,
Am7                  D7                Gmaj7 E7sus4       E7
 You should know the world and all its ways; so find your place.

Verse 2:

Amaj7                            Am7        D7
 How do I find words that do not condescend,
         Gmaj7       E7sus4   E

When she bore you be-fore me?
Amaj7                               Am7            D7
 'Cos she doesn't need a child; she needs a friend.
  Gmaj7              E7sus4  E7
A son, not a sob sto-ry.     (Ooh, ooh, hoo).

Chorus 1:

Amaj7                               Am7             D7
 Now you must look out for her, the way she did for you.
    Gmaj7                     E7sus4  E7
And your priority; it must be her.
Amaj7                               Am7             D7
 Now you must look out for her, the way she did for you.
Gmaj7                           E7sus4  E7
 'Cos we'll never be the way we were.    (Ooh, ooh, hoo).

Verse 3:

Amaj7      Am7
 She can't always be there,
D7                Gmaj7 E7sus4       E7
 Just to hold you down; our mother.
     Amaj7   Am7
When you are at an age now,
D7                  Gmaj7  E7sus4      E7
 Where life turns a-round, my brother.

Verse 4:

Amaj7
 Realise;
                       Am7          D7
That you don't have to answer to no man,
   Gmaj7                      E7sus4  E7
Re-sponsibility comes down to you.
Amaj7                        Am7        D7
 But how can I expect you to understand,
     Gmaj7                            E7sus4   E7
When you live life like you're so run through?

Chorus 2:

Amaj7                               Am7             D7
 Now you must look out for her, the way she did for you.
    Gmaj7                     E7sus4  E7
And your priority; it must be her.
Amaj7                               Am7             D7
 Now you must look out for her, the way she did for you.
Gmaj7                           E7sus4  E7
 'Cos we'll never be the way we were.

And your priority; it must be her.
Amaj7                               Am7             D7
 Now you must look out for her, the way she did for you.

Brother
There's so much that I could never say to your face
Bye, bye now
You should know the world and all its ways so find your place

How do I find words that do not condescend
When she bore you before me
'Cause she doesn't need a child, she needs a friend
A son not a sob story

(Now you must have never heard of what she did for you)
And your priority, it must be heard
(Now you must have never heard of what she did for you)
'Cause we'll never be the way we were

She can't always be there just to hold you down
Our mother
When you are at a age now well life turns around
My brother

Realize that you don't have to answer to no man
Responsibility comes down to you
But how can I expect you to understand
When you live life like its so run through

(Now you must have never heard of what she did for you)
Your priority, it must be heard
(Now you must have never heard of what she did for you)
'Cause we'll never be the way we were

(Now you must have never heard of what she did for you)
And your priority, it must be heard
(Now you must have never heard of what she did for you)
'Cause we'll never be the way we were

The way we were, we'll never be
And your priority, it must be heard
