[Chorus]
G C [Verse 1]
G I hated when dad

picked up his briefcase
C G 'Cause that meant that he was leavin' G Em                         
But I loved the sound
G
that his keychain made
C G When he got home in the evenin' G I was always sad, mom was always mad C G Most nights he showed up late G Em Set his briefcase down like
G
it didn't weigh a pound
C G No, I never understood the weight G But momma always left him a plate [Verse 2]
G Eighteen, said I'ma be anythin' C G But just like my old man G Em G Sellin' houses to all those families C G While his family sat at home missin' him G Got sick of playin' ball gamеs watchin' C G All the other dads watch their kids G Em G So I pickеd up a guitar case
C G
'cause it wasn't square like his
[Chorus]
C Now, I sound like him,

and I look like him
D And I walk like him,

and I talk like him
G And I try to make my wife laugh G Em When she's mad 'cause

I love my job like him
C Now, I get it dad,

it's a jugglin' act
D Between feedin' the kids
Em
and feedin' the dreams we chase
C I guess a guitar doesn't fall
D G
too far from a briefcase
[Verse 3]
G Well, momma cleaned,

and daddy worked
C G And I learned to play the guitar G Em G On McGregor Court, that's how
C G
we coped with all our broken hearts
G I know I held it against him C G Throwin' that baseball against his steps G Em G But daddy never held it against me C G 'Cause I wasn't a father yet, not yet [Chorus]
C Now, I sound like him,

and I look like him
D And I walk like him,

and I talk like him
G And I try to make my kids laugh G Em When they're sad

and it's all my fault,

like him
C Now, I get it dad,

it's a jugglin' act
D Between feedin' the kids and feedin'
Em
the dreams we chase
C I guess a guitar doesn't fall
D G
too far from a briefcase
[Bridge]
Em                           
It's a blessing and a curse
C
in this case I carry around
G Every time I pick it up,

my kids say,
D
"Daddy put it down"
Em                      
And I see me in them,
C
and I feel him in me
G Like the cats in the cradle
D
and the apples in the trees
C D And I just smile when somebody says [Chorus]
C That I sound like him,

and I look like him
D And I walk like him,

and I talk like him
G G And I run to the father
Em
when I hate nothin'

at all like him
C Yeah, I get it dad,

it's a jugglin' act
D                                           
Between feedin'

the kids and feedin'
Em
the dreams we chase
C D I guess a guitar doesn't fall too
G C G
far from the briefcase
