             GbGb chord         Bbm7Bbm7 chord               BB chord
I took the supermarket flowers from the window sill
          GbGb chord       Bbm7Bbm7 chord          BB chord
Threw the day mid tea from the cup

  Packed up the photo album Matthew had made

Memories of a life that’s been loved
           GbGb chord           Bbm7Bbm7 chord               BB chord
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
           GbGb chord          Bbm7Bbm7 chord           BB chord
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
EbmEbm chord          DbDb chord                 BB chord                GbGb chord
  Dad alwas told me don’t you cry when you’re down

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
            GbGb chord          Bbm7Bbm7 chord         BB chord
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
EbmEbm chord                DbDb chord                  BB chord          GbGb chord
   John said he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek
            BB chord             DbDb chord           GbGb chord
And wiped a tear from the side of my face

AbmAbm chord            EbmEbm chord        GbGb chord            DbDb chord

AbmAbm chord            EbmEbm chord          GbGb chord              DbDb chord
  a life with love is a life that’s been lived

  1. -6 is the best for any singing range

  2. if you use -6 and don’t like the Em7 I sub it for Em

  3. -4 easiest for low voices

  4. What strum do you guys use?

  5. DDUUD OR DDUUD is what I use for strumming

  6. Some of the lyrics are wrong

  7. -6 is easy and awesome! whoever made this song is a genius

  8. There’s a spelling error. It should be “…Dad ALWAYS told me, don’t you cry when you’re down…” Not, “…Dad alwas told me, don’t you dry when you’re down…”

  9. Elea ^ I use just down down because it’s a slower song

  10. robyn719

    +1 works best for me and I have a kind of higher voice

  11. Probably an unpopular opinion but my favorite is +6 (no I don’t sing it that high) and then I take it down an octave so it’s a really comfortable place for my voice (I’m a soprano but I can also do alto)
