While I Was Away
By Zane Williams
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Requested by: pricechance1 on 9/17/2014

Hammer on the 4th string, 2nd fret while fingerpicking in C to get close to Zane's sound...

By the time I made it home
You were already in bed
Chubby cheek pressed to your pillow
     G                  C
By a bedtime book you'd read

And I noticed that you looked older
Than you did yesterday
You've been growin' up 
G             C
While I was away

You made a pile of leaves in the front yard
I guess it's already fall
By the look of those pictures your momma took
The two of you had a ball

And it made me glad but a little sad
To see those games you play
I missed a lot of smiles
While I was away

        C/B   Am                     F                   C 
And for every dollar I earn there's a lesson you learn without me there
    C/B   Am                  F                          G 
And every day I'm on the go I'm prayin' that you know your daddy cared
           C                                         Am 
'Cause the hardest part about workin' hard ain't the bills I gotta pay
     G                            C  
It's you growin' up while I was away

And I found your note in the kitchen
It's a real work of art
A stickman holding your stick hand 
With "Daddy" written in a heart

And it got me good 'cause I understood
Just what you meant to say
You've been missin' me too
While I was away


             C                  E7 
You know the hardest part about workin' hard
          Am            F    F/D
Ain't the bills I gotta pay
It's everything I missed
G            C  
While I was away
