INTRO


F#m7
 Lately I've been noticing
          D                   F#m7   D
I say the same things he used to say,
F#m7                    D                    F#m7  D
 And I even find myself acting the very same way.
         E 
I tap my fingers on the table to the rhythm in my soul,
      Dsus2
And I jingle the car keys when I'm ready to go.
       E
When I look in the mirror, he's right there in my eyes,
        Dsus2
Starin' back at me and I realize:



            A                   E/Ab
The older I get, the more I can see,
            F#m                    D
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me.
       A                    E/Ab
And he did the best that he could,
           F#m              D          Bm7
And I only hope when I have my own family
     A/Db        D            E                    F#m7  D  F#m7  D
That every day I see a little more of my father in me.



           F#m7                                D                  F#m7  D
There were times I thought he was bein' just a little bit hard on me.
          F#m7
But now I understand he was makin' me 
  D                           F#m7      D
Become the man he knew that I could be.
        E
In everything he ever did, he always did with love,
        Dsus2
And I'm proud today to say I'm his son.
          E
When somebody says 'I hope I get to meet your dad',
       Dsus2
I just smile and say 'You already have'.



            A                   E/Ab
The older I get, the more I can see,
            F#m                    D
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me.
       A                    E/Ab
And he did the best that he could,
           F#m              D          Bm7
And I only hope when I have my own family
     A/Db        D            E                    D  E/D  D
That every day I see a little more of my father in me.
           A                  E/Ab 
He's in my eyes, my heart, my soul,
             F#m
My hands, my pride,
           D                                 A
And when I feel alone and I think I can't go on,
                   E/Ab             F#m   D  F#m7
I hear him sayin' 'Son, you'll be alright,
     E                  F#m7
Everything's gonna be alright'.



F#m7  D  A  E
INSTRUMENTAL



            A                   E/Ab
The older I get, the more I can see,
            F#m                    D
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me.
       A                    E/Ab
And he did the best that he could,
           F#m              D          Bm7
And I only hope when I have my own family
     A/Db        D         E          D
That every day I see, oh I hope I see,
       A/Db        D            E                    F#m7  D  F#m7 
I hope every day I see a little more of my father in me.
         D                    F#m7  D
A little more of my father in me.
       F#m7       D      F#m7
I hope everyday I see in me,
   D
In me,
   F#m7
In me,
       D          F#m7
I hope everyday I see,
         D                  F#m7  Dsus2
A little more of my father in me.

Great job. What an ear...

Try playing it with a capo. If you capo on the second fret it will change the F#m to an Em.
