(N. Schon/Perry/Cain/M. Schon)

Intro

Em, D, Dsus4, C,    Em, D, C, G, Dsus4

Em   Dbm  D     Bm       C
She sits alone, an empty stare
Bbm                 B     G#
A mother's face she wears
Em    Dbm        D
Where did she go wrong,
Bm            C
the fight is gone
     Bbm          B     
Lord help this broken home


 

CHORUS:

Em      C       C#      D  
   Hey, mother, father, sister
Em      C         C#           D
   Hey, come back, tryin', believein'
Em      C       C#      D 
   Hey, mother, father, dreamer
C G G                        D
   Don't you know that I'm alive for you
C G G                  D
   I'm your sevenths son
C G G                            D
   And when lightin' strikes the family
        D        C  C
   Have faith, believe.

Em     Dbm      D     Bm 


Em     Dbm      D     Bm        C 
With dreams he tried, lost his pride
    Bbm         B    G#  
He drinks his life away
Em   Dbm    D          
One photograph,
Bm        C 
in broken glass
Bbm             B
It should not end this way.

Em      Dbm     D
Through bitter tears
Bm            C          Bbm
And wounded years, those ties
    B          G#
of blood were strong
Em    Dbm     D       Bm       C   
So much to say, those yesterdays
   Bbm       B 
So now don't you turn away.

 
REPEAT CHORUS

Solo in   Em, C, C#, D
