and Dsus4 when it sounds good.


G
Momma
                   E2nd fret, b 3rd fret , e 3rd fret             
I  see your face now
          Cadd9
In the mirror
                 D2-D
it’s getting clearer

        G
And Daddy 
                         E2nd fret, b 3rd fret , e 3rd fret  

all those things I said I wouldn’t do 
      Cadd9
I’ve been drawn to
           D2-D
cause I looked up to you

        Em                                          C
But I loved tracing the roots on our family tree
      Am				        D
The twisted roots of our family tree


                  G-Cadd9              G
And I was drawn       like you did (?)
G                       G- Cadd9       D
And I’ve moved on like you did
           Em                                          C
Might wind up tough as stone like you did
G                                          C                            D
If I don’t learn to bend and I know I’m gonna break
               G
Like you did

G
Lover, 
         E2nd fret, b 3rd fret , e 3rd fret  
I must forgive you
       Cadd9
I’ve confused you
      D2-D                    
Of what I couldn’t see, 
G
inside of me
                E2nd fret, b 3rd fret , e 3rd fret  
  Dark things calling
       Cadd9
Not evolving
             D2-D
Made a puppet outta me

             Em                             C
And you came with your own history
                   Am			         D
Both caught on the branches of our family tree


                    G-Cadd9	     G
And I stayed strong like you did
                     G-Cadd9     D
And I moved on like you did
           Em                                   C
And I’ll wind up all alone like you did
G                           C                      D
But I’m learning to bend so I won’t break
               G
Like you did


    Em                            C
I love you but I need to look at who we’ve been
       Em                                                  C
Keep the fruit but choose the seeds I’ll scatter on the wind
                 Em          C
That’s the job of the kid
         Am                                  D
To do better than our parents did


G              G-Cadd9          G
So I’ll stay strong like you did
                     G-Cadd9     D
And I’ll move on like you did
                 Em                                C
But I won’t hide from the truth like you did
G                    C                       D
I’m learning to bend so I don’t break
              G                       C                           D 
You can bet I’ll teach my child that love will always find it’s way
              Cadd9-G
Just like you did
