chords seemed to sound a bit funny and I made some changes to it that seemed to 
sound fine. There's a part missing near the ending, but generally it works fine to my ears

I play it with a capo on 1st.

C                          Am
The bar closes early on the Sabbath day
  F                        G
So me and my kid we hit the park to play
         C                          Am
Then it'd start to rain so we'd walk home again
  F
He asked why he was born
            G
I don't know what to say

  C                      Am
I don't feel guilty and I don't feel sad
    F                          G
This mother f**king life is the best he's had
           C                       Am
I said I've been there sonny and it ain't that bad
         F                             G
I took my hits from the sh*ts back when I was a lad

Chorus:
          F                  Am
So long ago and even though I tried
                   C                   G                   F
I couldn't make him see the life he had cast in front of me
               Am                             C              G
And even though I cried I couldn't make him be the very thing I needed

(Same chord progression of C, Am, F, G)
His mother'd make a scene when I come home late
She look like she's dying but she's twenty eight
I never loved that whore I never will no more
Except for a month back in '84
The jam was playing and my heart stood still gazing at a shadow on the window sill

Chorus: (Chord progression of F, Am, C, G)
So long ago and even though I tried I couldn't make her see I wasn't quite the man 
she thought I'd be
And even though I cried I couldn't make her be the very thing I needed

And even though I tried I couldn't make her see I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be
And even though I cried I couldn't make her be the very thing I needed

(This is the part I've not figured out)
Could she be the very thing I needed?
Could she be the very thing
the very thing


C                           G
Push yourself away from your one best friend
Am                              F
Who's going to love you when you reach the end?
Who will?
Who will?
