(then, quickly play Em)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


 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

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


 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

 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

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
