Eb F7 Ab B7

It is the evening of the day
Eb F7 Ab B7
I sit and watch the children play
Ab B7
Smiling faces I can see
Eb Cm
But not for me,
Ab
I sit and watch
Gm Fm7 B7
As tears go by.

My riches can’t buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin’ things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by.

Lyrics:

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me,
I sit and watch
As tears go by.

My riches can’t buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin’ things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by.
