††† G~

 

†††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††G7†††††††††† †††††††††††FC

1. Iíve heard the sound of my dear old mama crying,

††††††††††††††††††† D†† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7†††††††††††††††††† G ††††- D7

††† and the sound of the train that took me off to war,

††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††G7††††††††††††††††† †††††††FC

††† and the awful sound of a thousand bombs exploding,

††††††††††††††† A†††††††† †††††††††††††††††A7††††††† ††††Am†††† - D

††† and I wondered if I could take it anymore.

††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† ††††G7†††††††††††††††††††† ††††F C

2. There were times when they almost drove me crazy,

††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††† D7†††††††††††††††† G†† - D7

††† but I did my best, I took it like a man.

†††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††G7††††††††††††††††††††† F††† C

††† But who would think in my lonely room Iíd hear it,

††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† ††††D7†††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††G

††† the one sound in the world my heart canít stand.

††††† - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -†† G†††††††† †††††††††F C

††† To hear that sound and to know itís really over,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††† †††D†† - A - D7

††† through tear stained eyes I watched her walk away.

†††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††- G7

††† And of earthquakes, storms and ††††††††††guns and war,

††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

††† Lord, nothing has ever hurt me more than that lonely sound,

†††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††† G††††† - D

††† the closing of the door. (orig. moves up half a note to capo 1st here)

††††††††† †††††††G††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††- G7

††† And of earthquakes, storms and †††††††††††guns and war,

†††††††††††††† C††††††††††† ††††††††††††A††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††G

†† Lord, nothing has ever hurt me more than that lonely sound,

†††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††† C - G

††† the closing of the dooÖ..r.
