E  A  E  A

   E 
He climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
C#m
He calls me Dad and I call him Bub
         B
With his faded old pillow and a bear named Pooh
   F#m                        B                   E   A
He snuggles up close and says, "I want to be like you"
  E      
I tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
         C#m
Trippin' over the toys as I turn out the light
      B
And I whisper a prayer that someday he'll see
F#m                                                B
He's got a father in God 'cause he's seen Jesus in me


                   A             B
Lord, I want to be just like You
                      E 
'Cause he wants to be just like me
               A      B
I want to be a holy example
        A        B       E
For his innocent eyes to see
             A             B 
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
        C#m    B       A 
That my little boy can read
             F#m
I want to be just like You
       B                   E  A
'Cause he wants to be like me

F
Got to admit I've got so far to go
        Dm 
Make so many mistakes and I'm sure that you know
    C
Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try
     Gm                   C                            F Bb
With all the pressures in life I just can't get it all right
        F
But I'm trying so hard to learn from the best
      Dm
Being patient and kind, filled with Your tenderness
         C 
'Cause I know that he'll learn from the things that he sees
        Gm                                  C
And the Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in me

                   Bb            C 
Lord, I want to be just like You
                      F
'Cause he wants to be just like me
               Bb     C 
I want to be a holy example
        Bb       C       F 
For his innocent eyes to see
             Bb            C
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
        Dm     C       Bb    
That my little boy can read
             Gm
I want to be just like You
       C                   F
'Cause he wants to be like me

Ab    Bb       Ab       Bb       Ab       Bb     Ab
Right now from where he stands I may seem mighty tall
                         Bb                     C              D
But it's only 'cause I'm learning from the best Father of them all

        G          C             D
Lord, I want to be just like You
                      G
'Cause he wants to be just like me
               C      D 
I want to be a holy example
        C        D       G  
For his innocent eyes to see
             C             D
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
        Em     D       C 
That my little boy can read
             Am
I want to be just like You
       D                   G 
'Cause he wants to be like me
             Am
I want to be just like You
       D                   G
'Cause he wants to be like me
