VERSE
     G        D    G       D
When I grow up to be a man
         G               D     G     D
Like my father was when I was young
   G             D     G             D
I hope I can make him so proud of me
  G                   D      G   D
Proud enough to call me his son

VERSE
G                       D    C
 What makes these people so different now
G                             C      D
 What makes these times so strange?
G                   D       C
 Seems most people got most everything they need
G                       C
 How come we see this change
 
 
CHORUS
D                               Em    Am
 Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
D                      Em            Am
 Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
G             C               D           G   C
 When will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
 
 
 
VERSE
G                 D        C
 When I was a boy, did we have more respect?
      G                     D       C
This world seemed a nicer place to be
     G                    D     C
But time slowly passes and one day you look around
     G              D        C
You hardly recognize what you see
 
 
CHORUS
D                               Em    Am
 Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
D                      Em            Am
 Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
G                 C               D           G   C
 Now when will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
 
|G |G |Am7 |Am7 |
                        Dm7   C
They're beyond our control
 
 
BRIDGE
Bm                      E
 We're all sons of our fathers
Bm                    E
 Sometimes I feel like mine
F#m                          C#m
 And I can hear him say, the things I say
            E                    D
Seems all things come around in time
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE
G                               C         D
 Why these things happen we'll never know
        G                        C
Guess that was then and this is now
G                      C
 We always knew that change was gonna come
       G                       C
But I want to go back, please tell me how
 
 
CHORUS
D                               Em    Am
 Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
D                      Em            Am
 Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
G             C               D           G   C
 When will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer

Oh, beyond our control
