    my voice was loud, and yours was so faint.

   C                   F           G                 G7

    I thought on lines of new coat of paint,

               C                    F              G C      - G

    when our love was needing repairing.

2. Jimmy, our son, he puts on a brave face,

F                           C            G                    G7

    but I hear him crying for one more embrace.

    storm clouds will linger till you ease the pain.

             C                  F                        G                  G7

    We need you so much, won't you come home again ?

              C                   F                           GC      - G

    The door's been unlocked since your going.
