As Tears Go By


Written by The Rolling Stones

Verse 1
F         G                Bb     C
It is the evening  of  the day
F         G                  Bb     C
I sit and watch the children play
Bb            C7
smiling faces I can see
F           Dm
But not for me
Bb                          C       C7
I sit and watch as tears go by


Verse 2
F         G              Bb     C
My riches can't buy everything
F         G                 Bb    C
I want to hear the children sing
Bb         C7
All I hear is the sound
F               Dm
Of rain falling on the ground,
Bb                          C     C7
I sit and watch as tears go by.

Verse 3
F         G              Bb    C
It is the evening of the day
F         G                  Bb      C
I sit and watch the children play
Bb             C7
Doing things I used to do
F                     Dm
They make me think on you
Bb                          C     C7
I sit and watch as tears go by.
