Intro:
Fi –   EmiDmi -   CG - 


C          Em                        Am                          
   And the     papers got wet in the     morning rain 
Am/G                                                         
      And the birds came
F                      G              C       (G)                   
   And Friday started     early that     day 

C                    Em                                        
   Mr. Albert Allow     Wishes Jones
Am                        Am/G                                    
    Rubbed the sleep out       of his bones
F                                                         
   Ate his toast and spoke her name
F                                                         
   His feet went of to find a train
Cmaj7                                                         
       Same old way

         Am7 /                                                
And his        hand reached out to catch it’s pay
                       Am7 /                                  
And there was much he        didn’t know about his life/
     Fmaj7 /                                                    
The          girl who typed his letters
           Fmaj7 /                                              
Loved him         better 
          Cmaj7        Fmaj7                                          
Than his         wife 


Chorus:
        C                   Em                                
And he    couldn’t hear the     song 
           Am            Am                                   
The chil -     dren sang 
        C                    Em                                
And he     wouldn’t see the     trees 
      A                 A7                                    
Be -     hind the wall 
        Dm                  C#+                                 
And he      didn’t hear the       melody 
F/C                              G                              
     The bells played when they     rang
         C        C/Bb            F           G                        
For the     city        sang the     saddest    song of 
Cmaj7       Fmaj7 -   Cmaj7 -   Fmaj7                                                    
       All 


Inter:
Am                                                         
    And mrs. Milly jones arose
Gm                                                         
    And ran a comb around her curls
Am                                                         
    And did the washing and the ironing 
          Gm                                               
For three      dirty little girls

         Bm                                                 
And her      body glowed as she recalled
          Am                                                
That the      man who sold the milk
Bm                                                         
    Still thought her young and sweet enough
             Am                                             
To say that      it was made of silk

         Bbmaj7                       C7                             
And she          smiled as she re –       membered
         Fmaj7                                                 
All the         things about his touch
         Bbmaj7                      C7                             
And she          wondered how a man      like that
Fmaj7                                                         
       Could make her feel so much
Am                                                         
    And then she cooked the diner
Am/G                     D7/F#                                      
      For a sad and ti –         red ‘n old breadwinner


Chorus:
         C                     Em                              
And she     couldn’t hear the      song 
            Am             Am                                  
The chil -      dren sang 
         C                    Em                               
And she     wouldn’t see the      trees 
      A7                 A7                                    
Be –      hind the wall 
         Dm                   C#+                                
And she      didn’t hear the        melody 
F/C                              G                              
     The bells played when they     rang
         C        C/Bb            F           G                        
For the     city        sang the     saddest     song of 
Cmaj7        Fmaj7       Cmaj7 -   Fmaj7                                               
       Aa -         ll 


C                           Em                                 
    And the Jones’s leaves      were in a pile
Am                            Am/G -                              
    And their children smiled 
F                     G7                  C       (G)                
    And brought them      breakfast on a     tray 

C                Em                                            
    And Mr. And      Mrs. Jones
Am                    Am/G                                        
    Rubbed the sleep        out of their bones
F                      Fmaj7                                      
    Took the food and         said “thank you”
               Fmaj7                                           
And then they         wondered what to do with the 
Cmaj7                                                         
       Saturday
         Fmaj7 /                                                
And her          hand reached out to catch his pay

And as he gave
    Fmaj7                                                      
He         smiled and called her “mother”
                             Fmaj7 /                           
And she spent some u - pon a          child
                        Cmaj7       Fmaj7                             
And the rest upon her         lo -         ver


Chorus:
          C                     Em                             
And they     couldn’t hear the      song 
            Am            Am

          C                    Em                              
And they     wouldn’t see the     trees 
       A7                  A7

And they     never hear the        melody 
F/C                              G                              
     The bells played when they     rang
