[Intro]
C - Am - F - G - C -

[Verse 1]
                C
Someone to play catch with 
               Am
out in the backyard
               F
To pick up the pieces
                     G
of your first broken heart
                C
Someone to say slow down
                 Am
when you turn sixteen
                          F
Yeah, I grew up without a dad,
                 G              C
I'm gonna be the best one I can be 

[Verse 2]
                     C
Someone to scare the monsters,
                       Am
when it's dark in your room
                     F
Someone to put their foot down 
                  G
when you want a tattoo
                   C
And not just say I love you,
                     Am
but show you what it means
                          F
Yeah, I grew up without a dad, 
                 G              C
I'm gonna be the best one I can be

[Chorus]
         F
They say dads are supposed to shape you
         C
and in a way I guess mine did
       Am                      G
I knew what I wouldn't do if I ever had a kid
         F
They say history repeats itself
        C            B/C   Am
Well, I guess that's up to me
                    F
I grew up without a dad,
                 G              C
I'm gonna be the best one I can be

[Verse 3]
                   C               
Someone to let you fall down
                             Am
and teach you how to get back up
                     F
Teach you how to be sweet like mamma
              G
and how to be tough
                    C
Yeah, I'll never be perfect,
                            Am
but sure as those lines are pink
                          F
Yeah, I grew up without a dad,
                 G              C
I'm gonna be the best one I can be

[Chorus]
         F
They say dads are supposed to shape you
         C
and in a way I guess mine did
       Am                      G
I knew what I wouldn't do if I ever had a kid
         F
They say history repeats itself
        C            B/C   Am
Well, I guess that's up to me
                    F
I grew up without a dad,
                 G              C
I'm gonna be the best one I can be

[Instrumental]
F  - C - G - Am

[Bridge]
      F                             
Yeah, I can't change the past, 
        C        B/C          Am    G
but the past has sure changed me  mmm
                    F
I grew up without a dad,
                 G              C
I'm gonna be the best one I can be
                      F
I said I'm gonna be a dad
                     G              C 
and I'm gonna be the best one I can be

[Outro]
Am                   F     G    C
  The best one I can be

Love you, baby girl
