G                                                     Em
DEAR ROBERT, when they took you last time I remember, the police light show was 
D                       C                             G             Dm
bright like the 4th. of July, right in the middle of December, as I strolled by
              Am                        G      
your place, unnoticed in the crowd, who stood by in the red lights as they took
     F               Dm                           Am

     G                                                    Em

D                            C                                 G
day, and as the smoke clears away, you come right back into my memory, yea,
