Up to D
(Richie Behler)

Awaking at the midnight hour with a notion to his name
Reminds me of the former childhood days
Living in the northern district could make him feel ashamed
And all the grief reflects his face

In order to achieve superior prospects for his kids
He left his job with no delay in the least
Disregarding family tradition feelings as he quits
His father's home and moved to the east

It's up to D, my friend - to D, my friend - and down to the A
It's up to D, my friend - to D, my friend - that's spelling "DAD"

It's up to D, my friend - to D, my friend - and down to the A
It's up to D, my friend - to D, my friend - that's spelling "DAD"

Which is not so bad

Well, it's human nature as a man gets in a miff
And sometimes treated me any wrong
Say, I was an angry young man who wasn't able to forgive
And that is why I'm singing this song

It's up to D, my friend - to D, my friend - and down to the A
It's up to D, my friend - to D, my friend - that's spelling "DAD"
