Dm7      Gm7                  C 
James... we were always friends,
F                   Cm  D7   
From our childhood days
Gm7                 C
And we made our plans,
F              Dm7     G       F/C C
And we had to go our separate ways.
F7/9              Bb
I went on the road
E7             A   
You pursued an education.
 
Dm7     Gm7                 C 
James...do you like your life,
F               Cm  D7   
Can you find release,
Gm7                 C
And will you ever change
F              Dm7       G     F/C C
Will you ever write your masterpiece.
F7/9              Bb
Are you still in school
E7           A   
Living up to expectations...
 
|Dm|Bbmaj7|Am7|
James...
Abmaj7                Gm7
You were so relied upon
C9sus                Bb      F     A
everybody knows how hard you tried
|Dm|Bbmaj7|Am7|
Hey...
     Ab                         Gm7
just look at what a job you've done
C9sus        C          Asus     A
Carrying the weight of family pride.
 
Dm7      Gm7                  C 
James... you've been well behaved,
F                      Cm  D7   
You've been working so hard
Gm7                 C
But will you always stay
F              Dm7       G       F/C C
Someone else's dream of who you are.
F7/9                  Bb
Do what's good for you
E7           A   
or you're not good for anybody...
 
James

Hey...
    Ab               Gm7
