the chosen one lyrics – black label society

hey papa, wanna thank you so
for who you is and what you be and all that you do
you, yeah, you, oh you always taught me right from wrong
i ain’t got much, but papa i wrote you this song, yeah, yeah

all the pain and suffering i watched you ignore
from a poor boy, through the ruins of war
when my life is over and i done found my home
just remember, yeah son you’re not alone, oh no

a hard road is what it’s gonna be
when i think of all you been and done
so glad i got to know ya papa
i’m so glad i was the chosen one
i’m so glad i was the chosen one
i’m so glad, so glad i was the chosen one

you, yeah, you, oh you always seemed find some time
beyond my dying day, you’ll always be a friend of mine
now i say you, you left some big shoes to fill
i’ll do my best to make you proud, i promise that i will
all the pain and suffering i watched you ignore, yeah i will

all the pain and suffering i watched you ignore
from a poor boy, through the ruins of war
when my life is over and i done found my home
just remember, yeah son you’re not alone, no

a hard road is what it’s gonna be
when i think of all you been and done
so glad i got to know you papa
i’m so glad i was the chosen one
i’m so glad i was the chosen one
i’m so glad, so glad i was the chosen one

don’t you know a hard road is what it’s gonna be
when i think of all you been and done
so glad i got to know you papa
i’m so glad i was the chosen one, that’s right

a hard road is what it’s gonna be
when i think of all you been and done
so glad i got to know you papa
i’m so glad i was the chosen one
i’m so glad i was the chosen one
i’m so glad, glad i was the chosen one, yeah
