[Dm7]James... [Gm7]we were always friend[C]s,
[F]From our childhood d[Cm]ays[D7]
[Gm7]And we made our plan[C]s,
[F]And we had to g[Dm7]o our se[G]parate w[F/C]ays.[C]
[F7/9]I went on the road[Bb]
[E7]You pursued an [A]education.
[Dm7]James...[Gm7]do you like your lif[C]e,
[F]Can you find rel[Cm]ease[D7],
[Gm7]And will you ever ch[C]ange
[F]Will you ever w[Dm7]rite your [G]master[F/C]piec[C]e.
[F7/9]Are you still in s[Bb]chool
[E7]Living up to [A]expectations...
[Abmaj7]You were so relied upo[Gm7]n
[C9sus]everybody knows how h[Bb]ard you [F]tried[A]
just [Ab]look at what a job you've d[Gm7]one
[C9sus]Carrying the [C]weight of f[Asus]amily pri[A]de.
