                D
He sat down, picked up the phone
            Bm
 And said, "Boy, I'm your old man"
    A
 He touched the glass between the two
    Bm
 As if to shake his hand

    D
The boy, he didn't budge
          Bm
 Not even so much as a blink
     A
 The man said, "Oh, come on
                 Bm                      A
 Better late than never, don't you think?"

            D
He said, "I read it in the paper
       Bm
 Can't believe you're 21
       A
 Can't believe some son of mine
            Bm
 Could do the things I hear you've done"

       D
He went on like some big hero
         Bm
 Who flew in to save the day
        A
 And the boy said, "If you're here
            Bm                         A
 To steer me right, man, it's too late"


             D
"You had to be there
        A
 And I'm talkin' from day one
           Bm          A
 That's the only time a man should talk
         G                 A
 Through glass to his new son"
                  D
"And you'd have to go back
             A
 And teach me how when I was nine
          Bm             A
 'Cause my mama couldn't throw a ball
       G                  A
 Even if she had the time"
                        Em
"And I should have been learnin' how to fish
            F#m
 Instead of learnin' how to smoke
          G
 I bet if you'd have whooped my tail
           F#m
 I'd never thought it was a joke"
         Em
He said, "Sometimes the will
                    F#m
 For doin' wrong is way too strong
          A
 For any Mama's prayers
            D
 You had to be there"


    D
The man said, "Boy, I'm sorry
          Bm
 That you hate me like you do"
     A
 The boy said, "Dry it up, man
         Bm                     A
 We ain't makin' this about you"
              D
"It's about a teenage girl against the world
          Bm
 Who was left there high and dry
        A
 About a kid who might have stood
            Bm                   A
 A whole lot better shot at life"

             D
"You had to be there
        A
 And I'm talkin' from day one
           Bm          A
 That's the only time a man should talk
         G                 A
 Through glass to his new son"
                  D
"And you'd have to go back
             A
 And teach me how when I was nine
          Bm             A
 'Cause my mama couldn't throw a ball
       G                  A
 Even if she had the time"
                        Em
"And I should have been learnin' how to fish
            F#m
 Instead of learnin' how to smoke
          G
 I bet if you'd have whooped my tail
           F#m
 I'd never thought it was a joke"
         Em
He said, "Sometimes the will
                    F#m
 For doin' wrong is way too strong
          A
 For any Mama's prayers
            D
 You had to be there"


  D
Before the boy hung up the phone
          Bm
 He said, "They say I'm out of time"
        A
 And it hit the man right there and then
    Bm                 D
 "My God, son, so am I"
