Teach Your Children by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

D                                             G
You who are on the road
D                                             A Asus4 A
Must have a code that you can live by
D                                             G
And so become yourself
D                                             A Asus4 A
Because the past is just a good-bye.

D                                             G
Teach your children well,
D                                             A Asus4 A
Their father’s hell did slowly go by,
D                                             G
And feed them on your dreams
D                                             A Asus4 A
The one they picks, the one you’ll know by.

D                      G                      D                      A
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
D                      Bm                      G
So just look at them and sigh
A         D      G            A     D
and know they love you.

D                      G
And you, of tender years,
D                      A Asus4 A
Can’t know the fears that your elders grew by,
D                                           G
And so please help them with your youth,
D                                           A Asus4 A
They seek the truth before they can die.

D                                G
Teach your parents well,
D                                             A Asus4 A
Their children’s hell will slowly go by,
D                                             G
And feed them on your dreams
D                                             A Asus4 A
The one they picks, the one you’ll know by.

D                      G                      D                      A
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
D                      Bm                      G
So just look at them and sigh
A         D      G            A     D
and know they love you.
