  G          A7               C    D7
1. It is the eve-ning of the day 
  G           A7                   C    D7
   I sit and watch the child-ren  play
  C                D7          G            Em
   Smil-ing fa-ces I can see___ But not for me
  C                            D     D7
   I sit and watch as tears go by


  G            A7                C    D7
2. My ri-ches can't buy ev’-ry-thing
  G           A7                 C    D7
   I want to hear the child-ren sing
  C           D7             G                 Em
   All I hear is the sound___ Of rain fall-ing on the ground
  C                                D     D7 
   I sit and and watch as tears go by
