Father & Son - Cat Stevens sur Guitariff.net
The only real variation in this song is playing D, Bm7 and Bm Rest is fairly repetitive; though it's nice, you really need the soul in your voice to carry it for the whole tune. Did my best on the backing vox on last verse - timing's pretty close I think. FATHER AND SON (Cat Stevens, from _Tea for the Tillerman_, 1970?) G D C Am7 It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy G Em You're still young that's your fault, Am D there's so much you have to know G D C Am7 Find a girl, settle down, if you want to, you can marry G Em Am D Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy G Bm7 C Am7 I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy G Em Am D to be calm, when you've found something going on. G Bm7 C Am7 But take your time, think a lot, think of everything you've got G Em D G For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not G-C G-C Chorus: G Bm C Am7 How can I try to explain? when I do he turns away again G Em Am D it's always been the same, same old story G Bm C Am7 From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen G Em D G now there's a way and I know I have to go away D C G G-C G-C and I know I have to go [Break. Unsure of which chord of D, Bm7, or Bm is played.] Verse: (away) (away) It's not time to make a change, just sit down and take it slowly (I) (know) (I have) You're still young, that's your fault, there's so much you have (to make this) to go through (decision) (alone) Find a girl, settle down, if you want to you can marry (know) [no?] Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy (stay) (stay, stay) All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside (why?)

If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them they know, not me Now there's a way, and I know that I have to go away. I know I have to go. (ends on single strum of G) Someone else suggested playing C (add D), which adds the note the voice sings. In fact, there's a whole bunch of added notes not included here. This makes for a beautiful 2-guitar solo, which, since it repeats the same chords, could be really dull otherwise. If anyone can add to this, please do. The closest I come is the G-C part (intro, ends of 1st verse, chorus and break) where there's a little slide. One fairly easy way to play it is to hold the C chord, add the G on the 1st string with your pinky and slide the whole thing up, after hitting the second G: e ---3----3s5---------------- b -1----1-------------------- or whatever... BTW, any of you guys ever played this for your father?
