They only found a note
Em             G          Em                   G
"Take the past nine years back from where they came"
G                D              C                        G
People call that suicide, but I seen him on the street today

Em D               G     C
He kept his winter coat

C                               G
Why, I seen him on the street today

Em D               G     C
