GRIM REMINDER                    ©JAMES MOHR

Capo 3

INTRO: Em C G D Em

  Em
I LOOK OUT OF THE WINDOW AND OUT THERE IN THE COLD
C
I SEE A WEAK AND FEEBLE MAN HOBBLE DOWN THE ROAD
            G
SOME KIDS ARE RIGHT BEHIND HIM THROWING STICKS AND POKING FUN
     D                                                                                                                               (2nd time only Em to end song)
IT REMINDS ME OF MY YOUNGER DAYS AND SOME STUPID THINGS IíVE DONE

Em
HE KEEPS A SLOW AND STEADY PACE LEANING ON HIS CANE.
C
HAS A PROUD LOOK ON HIS FACE, BUT I CAN SEE THE PAIN.
                       G
AND AFTER YEARS OF ME NOT CARING, I BEGAN TO REALIZE
         D                                                                                    Em
THE STORY THAT HEíS SHARING IS WRITTEN IN HIS EYES

Em
HE FOUGHT FOR HIS COUNTRY IN THE 2ND WORLD WAR
                  C
LOST HIS WIFE AND A BABY TO A STORM IN í54
                       G
THOUGH HE NEVER REMARRIED, HE PREFERS TO LIVE ALONE
      D                                                 
HE HOBBLES PAST MY HOUSE EACH DAY JUST TO KNEEL AT THEIR STONE

Em
A BEAT UP BUICK WAGON BRINGS THE MAN HIS MEALS
           C
THEY SHAKE HIS HAND AND PAT HIS BACK AND ASK HIM HOW HE FEELS
G
HE'S A GRIM REMINDER, A WAKE UP CALL TO ME
          D                                                                                                                   Em
AND THOSE INSIDE THE WINDOW, THEREíS MORE THAN WHAT YOU SEE

(repeat first verse)
