Intro
| [D] | [D] | [G] | [G]
| [D] | [D] | [A] | [A↓]
| [D] You, | who are on the | [G] road | [G]
Must have a | [D] code | that you can | [A] live by | [A]
And | [D] so, | become your- | [G] self | [G]
Because the | [D] past | is just a | [A] goodbye | [A]

| [D] Teach | your children | [G] well | [G]
Their father's | [D] hell | did slowly | [A] go by | [A]
And | [D] feed | them on your | [G] dreams | [G]
The one they | [D] pick's, | the one you'll | [A] know by | [A]

Chorus
| [D] ...Don't you | ever ask them | [G] why
If they | [G] told you, you would | [D] cry
So just | [D] look at them and | [Bm7] sigh- | -igh | [G] -igh
| [A↓] And know they | [D] love you | [D]
| [G] | [G] | [D] | [D] | [A] | [A↓]

And | [D] you, | of tender | [G] years | [G]
Can't know the | [D] fears | that your elders | [A] grew by | [A]
And so, | [D] please help | them with your | [G] youth | [G]
They seek the | [D] truth | before they | [A] can die | [A]

| [D] Teach | your parents | [G] well | [G]
Their children's | [D] hell | will slowly | [A] go by | [A]
And | [D] feed | them on your | [G] dreams | [G]
The one they | [D] fix, | the one you'll | [A] know by | [A]

Chorus
| [D] ...Don't you | ever ask them | [G] why
If they | [G] told you, you would | [D] cry
So just | [D] look at them and | [Bm7] sigh- | -igh | [G] -igh
| [A↓] And know they | [D] love you | [D]
| [G] | [G] | [D] | [D] | [A] | [A↓]
