Lyrics

RAISE A SON

Dm Dan's heart was heavy as he drove the road in stormy weather.
Am It was a road a father would avoid if he knew better.
G His grampa's words came back to him - he told him:"Listen Dan,
C It's easier to raise a son than to fix a wicked man.

Dm Am G C

Dm Dan heard those words his grampa said as he held his newborn son.
Am But he thought more of being cool in the eyes of everyone.
G He climbed the ladder of success - got rich along the way.
C But if you'd ask him for advice, I think that he would say:

(Chorus)
F Spend time with your dear children.
To ambition don't give in.
Am The honor fame, or money
Ain't worth it in the end.
Dm Don't do what I did with my son
But give all the time you can.
G It's easier to raise a son
C Than to fix a wicked man.

Dm Am G C

Dm Dan's son was handed everything. He rarely heard a "No".
Am He missed his father's guidance. Dan was always on the go.
G He never really learned to give. He knew how to receive.
C And when he got into a jam, he learned how to deceive.

Dm At eighteen, he found out that there would be no more free ride.
Am And Dan was noticing his son had grow corrupt inside.
G He tried to win with reason his son's heart which had grown cold.
C But soon he saw the wisdom in the words that he was told.

Chorus

Dm Am G C

Dm Dan thought as he passed the graveyard's gate, he never knew his dad.
Am He died when Dan was only five. The irony was sad.
G Dan followed in his grampa's steps and this is where they led.
C He would have fared much better if he heeded what was said.

Chorus

Dm Am G C
