Father Son Picnic
By Slick Shoes
Tabbed by Eric Exley

Drop-D tuning

all notes low unless there is an * after it  --  X means muted

Intro:   X/F - C - G# - X/D# - X/D#- F

Slide into F
       F                          G#                  D#                 
To learn from past mistakes to crawl out of the hole I dug myself
                       G#                     D#
I should have learned by now I can't do it
             C#                       D#*               X/G#G#G# 
And the time it flies right past me now
   C#                            D#*                X/G#G#G#  X/G#G#G#
I pray that you would show me how
C#                     D#*                F*            D#* C#
You're the only one you're my father, I'm your son
                                     D#*                  G#
And with your love I'm sure it won't be long
F                G#                       D#
All I ever wanted was to feel as though you cared
F                        G#             D#
But as time has shown I see we are all too scared

F                                          G#
Faith in human beings never got me anywhere
        D#                              F
And here I stand with only you
Love is what you've shown me
        G#                                          D#                   
The only time I ever felt love was when you were standing next to me

I'm still working on the outro.  If I got anything wrong, e-mail me at
