D                       A#
What did she do to you sir?
           F*                C
Can't you see that you are twice the size of her?
D                           A#
It's not like she can stand up
          F*                      C
When you beat her down with your love
D                                        A#
Turn around and hear his screams as you toss his mom around
F*                         C
He sees his loving father beating mommy down
D                                   A#
You threw me into the wall and you told me to shut up
F*                     C                A# - C
That's what ignited me and then I blew up
                A# - C
Why can't I forget?

D              A#           F*               F6*-F*-F6*
Daddy dearest, I love you, please return it back
D                 A#            F*                  F6*-F*-F6*
Christian family, we once were, do you still blame me?


D              A#            F*            F6*  F*-F6*
Daddy dearest, you left me, nowhere to be found
D                 A#             F*     F6*     D   R1
Christian family, we still are, forgive and forget
D                         A#
Dad you are still in my prayers
       F*                   C
Even though, when I needed you you weren't there
D                             A#
Your daughter would also like to
       F*                      C
Once again, just be called a princess by you
D                                                     A#
She cried so hard that she couldn't breathe, but you didn't even know
F*                        C
And if you did, you were too involved in yourself to show
D                                A#
So I went to comfort her and to see if she was okay
F*                                     C            A# - C
That's when you decided to leave us, then you ran away
                A# - C
Why can't I forget?
D              A#                  F*               F6*-F*-F6*
Daddy dearest, you weren't there, when she cried to you
D                 A#              F*          F6*-F*-F6*
Christian values, you taught me, what a hypocrite
D              A#         F*                F6*-F*-F6*
Daddy dearest, my mentor, I still weep for you
D                 A#         F*    F6*     D  R1
Christian father, maybe so, now my dad is God.  Now my dad is God


D-A#-F*-F6* (2X)


R1
So long, no goodbyes from you, did I hear at all


Father, how I wish you well, in this world of fools
(2X)


D              A#            F*              F6*-F*-F6*
Daddy dearest, I love you, please return it back
D                 A#             F*                F6*-F*-F6*
Christian family, we once were, do you still blame me?
D              A#            F*            F6*-F*-F6*
Daddy dearest, you left me, nowhere to be found
D                 A#             F*     F6*     D
Christian family, we still are, forgive and forget
