3 Doors Down - Father's Son: chords

G                 A#              F             G
In the glare of a neon sign, she laid her body down
     G                  F                               G
The damned walked in beside her, and he laid his money down

He said don't try to scream now, but I want this one to hurt
And tonight my pretty one, I'm gonna get my money's worth

And he said they’d never listen, she said they’d never understand
That I don't do this for pleasure, I just do it cuz I can

I swear I didn't want to, and I swear I didn't know
That things like this could happen, to a 17-year old

Chorus:
         D#         A#            F       G
And I've bundled up all of these fears inside
         D#         A#           F
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one and nothing, can take this away
But I won't let it happen again - never again

In the haze of a smoky room
He chokes that bottle down
It's been a month since her saw her face
Underneath the blood stained gown

He thinks about that little girl
And the one he has at home
And wonders, "What if that was my little girl
Walking down that road alone?"

Chorus:
And I've bundled up all of these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again

Maybe I'm just crazy or the devil got inside
But either way my soul is gone, And I'll end this all tonight

The one hand throws the whiskey, and the other throws the gun
As he cries out to the heavens, "I am not my father's son"

Chorus:
And I've bundled up all of these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again
