Verse 1 w/Rh.Fig.1 (4x) Em D(no5) C Make the sadness go away come back another Em D(no5) C day. For years I've tried to teach but their eyes are Em D(no5) C empty. Empty too I have become for them I must Em D(no5) C die. A sad and troubled race an ungrateful troubled place

Chorus w/Rh.Fig.2 (4x) E5 D5 I see the sadness in their eyes melancholy in their E5 D5 cries. Devoid of all the passion the human spirit cannot E5 D5 die. Look at the pain around me this is what I E5 D5 cry for. Look at the pain around me this is what I die for Repeat Rh.Fig.1 Verse 2 w/Rh.Fig.1 (4x) Make the sadness go away come back another day The things I've said and done don't matter to anyone But still you push me to see something I can never be Why am I their shuttered king? I don't mean anything Chorus w/Rh.Fig.2 (4x)
