A     A/Ab   F#m  F#m    A/E  D    A         D/B  A/C#    E 
Father,       son   Locked  as    one  In this empty       room 
A           A/Ab   A/G  F#m    A/E     D   A          D/B     A/C#            E   
Spine against spine Yours against mine  Till the warmth comes through 

D                             A/C#   D/F#           A/E 
Remember the breakwaters down by the waves 
D                       A/C#                 G/B            F#m/A  
I first found my courage Knowing daddy could save 
E/G#            A                 D   E/G#           A             D 
       I could hold back the tide    With my dad by my side 

A               A/Ab  F#m       F#m             A/E    D     
Dogs, plows and bows We move through each pose 
A                     D/B  A/C#       E 
Struggling in our separate ways 
A           A/Ab   A/G         F#m    A/E     D 
Mantras and hymns Unfolding limbs 
A                             D/B        A/C#                   E   
Looking for release through the pain 



    

              D                  A/C#   D/F#           A/E 
And the yogi's eyes are open Looking up above 
D               A/C#              G/B     F#m/A  
He too is dreaming of his daddy's love 
E/G#            A       D   E/G#           A             D    E D 
With his dad by his side     Got his dad by his side 

C#             D             C#                   D 
Can you recall How you took me to school 
A                D/B  A       E       
We couldn't talk much at all  
E D        C#             D             C#           D   A                    D/B  A/C#      E 
It's been so many years And now these tears Guess I'm still your child 

A      A/Ab  F#m   F#m   A/E    D    A                 D/B         A/C#       E 
Out on the moors We take a pause See how far we have come 
A           A/Ab                     A/G         F#m    A/E     D 
You're moving quite slow How far can we go 
A      D/B  A/C#  E 
Father and son 
Bridge 
E/G#        A             D   E/G#       A             D     
With my dad by my side With my dad by my side 
E/G#        A             D             {:A D A D A D A:} 
Got my dad by my side    With me

View Just Lyrics...

Father, son
Locked as one
In this empty room
Spine against spine
Yours against mine
Till the warmth comes through

Remember the breakwaters down by the waves
I first found my courage
Knowing daddy could save
I could hold back the tide
With my dad by my side

Dogs, plows and bows
We move through each pose
Struggling in our separate ways
Mantras and hymns
Unfolding limbs
Looking for release through the pain

And the yogi's eyes are open
Looking up above
He too is dreaming of his daddy's love
With his dad by his side
Got his dad by his side

Can you recall
How you took me to school
We couldn't talk much at all
It's been so many years
And now these tears
Guess I'm still a child

Out on the moors
We take a pause
See how far we have come
You're moving quite slow
How far can we go
Father and son

With my dad by my side
With my dad by my side
Got my dad by my side
With me
