My Orphan Year
This is a depressing, yet great song. really fun to sing and play. I didn't see a correct tab anywhere, so here it is. I was nice enough to include the exact times when the parts come in too. INTRO: (00:18) F#m Eb5 D (00:31) A F#m D A (00:50) A My father had dementia C#m He lied in bed for months F#m Once in a while he'd call me Dm And ask me to fly down Bm I told him that I'd love to D But I had things to do A A/Ab F#m And so he died without his son Bm D I heard about it drunk after a show (1:14) A My mother battled cancer C#m For over seven years F#m I nursed her and I held her Dm When time was running out Bm The night before she left me D I drank scotch all night A A/Ab F#m And thanked her for everything she'd done Bm D Raising me alone wasn't much fun (1:37) A So Dad I can forgive you, E But I'll never forget, Bm D Months I wouldn't see you and when I did You'd be A out with your friends all night E Alone and only nine Bm I watched the outer limits D While scared out of my mind A I wonder if you felt the same A/Ab The days before you died F#m I wonder if you even knew Why I wouldn't come around Bm I bet if you had been there, There wouldn't be this song A A/Ab 2006 F#m goodbye parents D For once sincere A 2006 my orphan year (2:32) REPEAT INTRO so yeah thats about it.
