    Intro:     Em      C      Em      C


 Em
 Oh my god, I cry in fear
     C
 Afraid you have forgot me here
     D
 Afraid you have forgotten one
        C              Em            C
 Your quiet, dull and faithful son

    Em
 I went to work, I worked all day
          C
 When I wanted to run, I stayed
              D
 I kept the promises I made
              C         Em
 I kept the promises I made

 Em
 Little children came and grew
  C
 Moved away and never knew
  D
 Who I was or who I am
             C              Em
 Well, they never knew this lonely man

            C              G
 And those mornings came stiff with rain
             D                C
 I thought the sun would never shine again
         C                    G
 With the sleeves of my old raincoat 
                   D              C
 Stained with the salt of my own tears

        C           G
 And I never would tell you then
     D            C
 So I never will tell you now
           C                  G
 All the things that break an old man down
      D                C
 The real truth is, I don't know how

 
 Em      C      Em      C      Em      C      Em      C


 Em
 Oh my god, I cry in fear
     C
 Afraid you have forgot me here
     D
 Afraid you have forgotten one
        C              
 Your quiet, dull and faithful son

         D
 Who's seen the loneliest of days
       C
 And fought the dirtiest of ways
           D
 With the man inside who would have run away
            C         Em
 From the promises I made


 Em      C      Em      C   D   Em


 End on Em
