The Coral – Bill Mccai
Em
His family taught him right from wrong

With local tales and children's songs
Am
Sunday school was his shelter
D
With his friends Joe and Walter
Em
Now those days seem far away
An empty swing where he once played
Am
Now Bill's grown so fat and bold
D
He never thought that he'd grow old

-ESTRIBILLO(CHORUS)
G       C     D
And everyday when he gets the train
G           C      D
Looks out the window and thinks in vain
C          D            Em(aqui la otra guitarra toca la Intro)(here the
If I could only be that boy again          other guitar plays the Intro)
                        -------------------------------

Em
His sales job it gets him down
Same old faces, same old sounds
Am
Heart attacks, orthopaedic backs
D
Documents and labelled racks
Em
His wife can't stand the sight of him
With his routine glass of gin
Am
She makes his lunch of processed ham
  D
And waits in for the meter man

ESTRIBILLO(CHORUS):
G       C     D
And everyday when he gets the train
G           C      D

Em
Another day, another gin

His kids don't even notice him

Am
Something different about his face
D
His happy smile seems out of place
Em
His family gathered round for tea
Eyes fixed on their new telly
C
A news flash came, then it said
D
Bill McCai was just found dead

ESTRIBILLO(CHORUS):
G          C     D
No more windows, no more trains
G           C     D
Hung himself out in the rain

C         D             Em(la otra guitarra la Intro)(the other guitar
Now he'll never be that boy again                plays the Intro again)
