"Son of Your Father" is a song by Elton John with lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It is the fourth track on his third studio album, Tumbleweed Connection. The lyrics tell of an argument between two men (one blind) on "an East Virginia Farm." After a while, their argument leads to death because the two men did not follow the golden rule as stated in the lyrics (but in different words). It is the only song off "Tumbleweed Connection" John has never performed in concert.[1]
