Have you seen the old man,  Outside the seaman's mission
F/                  C/                D7/                 G7/
Memory fading with the minor ribbons that he wears

In our city winter the rain cries little pity
F/                            C /               G7 /                   C /     C/
For one more forgotten hero, And a world which doesn't care ++
