[INTRO] Bm Em A D x2
[VERSE]
Bm        Em
I know a girl
               A                  D
She puts the color inside of my world
     Bm                Em
But she's just like a maze
                   A                     D
Where all of the walls all continually change
    Bm              Em
And I've done all I can
                  A                        D
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands
Bm                   Em
Now I'm starting to see
                A                 D
Maybe it's got nothing to do with me

[CHORUS]
Bm          E7                G D
Fathers, be good to your daughters
Bm              E7           A D
Daughters will love like you do
Bm             E7          G          D
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    Bm           E7            G       D
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bm Em A D

[VERSE]
Bm                  Em
Oh, you see that skin?
          A                       D
It's the same she's been standing in
          Bm                 Em
Since the day she saw him walking away
Em        A
Now she's left
A                       D
Cleaning up the mess he made

[CHORUS]
Bm          E7                G D
Fathers, be good to your daughters
Bm              E7           A D
Daughters will love like you do
Bm             E7          G          D
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    Bm           E7            G       D
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bm Em A D

[BRIDGE]
D7     Gm      D
Boys, you can break
G                                   Bm
You'll find out how much they can take
                Em
Boys will be strong
                 D/F#
And boys soldier on
                  Gm
But boys would be gone without the warmth from
   A                  Bm
A womans good, good heart

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bm E7 A D x2

[BRIDGE]
                  Bm E7
On behalf of every man
                 G     D
Looking out for every girl
D            Bm         E7              A D
You are the god and the weight of her world

[CHORUS x3]
Bm          E7                G D
Fathers, be good to your daughters
Bm              E7           A D
Daughters will love like you do
Bm             E7          G          D
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    Bm           E7            G       D
So mothers, be good to your daughters too
