Verse: (Try to make variations with Dsus4! Hear the song and find out when to vary.)
D G You went in the morning
D G We didn't say good-bye
D G The friends that you left here
Em7/B Asus4 Wonder why, wonder why
D G I wish I could see you
D G Just for a day
D G Tell you we missed you
Em7/B Asus4 And ask you to stay, ask you to stay
Chorus:
D Cadd4 To absent friends
Em Cmaj7 This one's for you, this one's for you
D Cadd4 To absent friends

Make sure that it sounds/feels good.) Em C Em C Em C D D Em C Em C Em C D D
Bm D When we're together
Bm D You stand at our side
Bm D We'll raise our glasses
