Father Figure

Close to finishing this song written for Dad’s birthday.
Father Figure
Tim Foelker, 1/25/22
Key: [G]
G, Em, C, D7, Bm, Am

VERSE 1
G               Em    C        D7
Every once in a while a father figure appears
G             Em    C             D7
His truth and style guide us all along the years

G        Em          C          D7
A family man for his tight-knit family clan 
G         Em         C      D7
A working man with a simple plan


VERSE 2
G             Em                    C
He taught the things we could not learn
            D7                Em
Like how to listen and take a turn

          G       Em        C
Given the time to stake his claim
C             D7             Em
He earned a legacy for his name


[CHORUS]
Bm
He’s a father figure
Em                     Am                   C
And Everyone knows his heart is bigger than any bite
Bm       Em         Am
He never lingers on any fight
         C            D       G
B'cuz he knows you’ll see the light

    Em          C               D7                   G
‘Ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ight, (b’cuz he knows you’ll see the light.)
‘Ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ight, (b’cuz he knows you’ll see the light.)

 [Harp G, first verse melody]

G   Em                     C
His dedication to his one true Rose
             D7            G
Touched a part of us, and it shows

     Em                   C
They created the world we see;
           D7         Em
We’re an extended family.

[CHORUS] And he's the father figure …

    Em          C               D7                   G
‘Ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ight, (b’cuz he knows you’ll see the light.)
‘Ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ight, (b’cuz he knows you’ll see the light.)

[OUTRO]

C                        D                     G
    He's a Father Figure,     a Father Figure, Ours.

Jerry and Tim’s Gold Rush

Jerry Finigan wrote some new lyrics for Neil Young’s, After the Gold Rush. I modified them some and recorded a simple version.
