Lyrics/Order

Intro

Tab 1
  It's father's day everbody celebrates but me
I forgot again for the 23 year in a row
but I don't know If I'm bitter or just a bit confused
on days like this, how could you how could you not be

Tab 2

Tab 1
  the letter I got 
wrinkled and yellow from years hidden in some cardboard box
mom didn't want me to see until I was old enough
what advice to give your son you said
do what think is right, in life you can never go wrong

Chorus:
Tab 3
When Adrian James left Marie and Son
One third of the whole was gone

Tab 1
Did you miss the part about until death do us part well did that
wedding ring really not mean anything to you
Adrian if I could meet you now would you act anything like a father should
Would you find it hard to call me son

Chorus

Tab 4
My father, fallible father
has been replaced, been replaced
by my Father, heavenly Father
Some times, I wonder if I
would ever grow to love anyone like him
Tab 3
sometimes I wonder if I
would ever grow to look anything like him

Tab 5

Then Tab 2 a whole bunch, with solo (which i didn't tab out)

I am unsure of a lot of this, specifically Tab 2...so it's fair game for corrections.

I think that this song was actually written in an alternate tuning. I left a comment about it on the tab for "Nailholes".
