Some other versions of "Father"


Are you a soldier, are you on the other side
Are you in jail, 'cause no way are you guilty
No way no way, 'cause I know ahh aaahh ooohh

Where are you fa father
Where are you fa father
Where are you fa father
Where are you?

Auction block the hell continues
Family torn to shreds
Took you from me sold my heart
Traded pain for gain
Are you ever coming home again?


Today on the way to rave
Jackie passes tombstones by
In her gaze, she's trying to be brave
Word has it that he passed some time
But she never knew, knew him in her time
But she needs protection all the time
To fat-her with guidance and
Give her the love as only a father can

Where are you fa father
Where are you fa father
Where are you?

Black boy child, future in his eyes
Needs you within his world
Forever needs you within his world
Forever kwabena aah

I have fought, yes I have fought
From the very beginning
Fought the barbarians to get next to you
But rest assured we will win
And one day we will be together again


To reach me
You would have to climb
Through the mountains of my despair
And swim through the rivers of my tears
And when we meet
We will have three things in common
Pain, tears, love
Know that I love you
And that I will love you forever
Until freedoms day
