Sons 'n' Daughters

(Ian Hunter)

Intro; [D] [G] [D] [G] [G] [G] [G] [G]
C G D G
There's a place in the city they call the Archway
C G A D
Where we rented three rooms for a dollar a day
C G D G
And I worked semi-skilled at the capstans for years
C G D G
And my wife was a good woman but the love disappeared
C G D G
Sons and daughters, daughters and sons
C G A D When a marriage goes down they're the loneliest ones
C G D G
Sons and daughters, daughters and sons
C G A G
How I hope they can cope with the damage I've done
I found me a band, I went out on tour
So the kids wouldn't know I was with them no more
When they said, "Where's me dad?" She'd say, "He's a star!"
Oh if only stars knew what fools they all are
Sons and daughters, daughters and sons
When a marriage goes down they're the loneliest ones
Sons and daughters, daughters and sons
How I hope they can cope with the damage I've done
I got a new contract, I got a new life
No more capstans for me and I've got a new wife
Sometimes she gets angry, says she wants a family
Then that nightmare returns like a ghost haunting me
Sons and daughters, daughters and sons
When a marriage breaks up you're the loneliest ones
Sons and daughters, daughters and sons
How I hope you all cope with the damage we done
