      GROWN MEN DON'T CRY    Tim McGraw

    A#               F
I pulled into the shopping center 
           D#                                         A#    F D#
and saw a little boy wrapped around the legs of his mother
     A#                 F   
Like ice cream melting they embrace 
 D$                                      A#   F  D#   
Years of bad decisions running down her face
             A#                     F
All morning I've been thinking my life's so hard.  
      D#           
They wore everything they own, living in a car
    A#                         F
I wanted to tell them it would be o.k.
           D#                                     D#                  
But I just got in my surburban And I drove away
   A#             D#                            A#  F D#   
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry
   A#             D#                            A#  F D#  
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry
       A#                F
Keep having this dream about my old man. 
     D#                                A#   F  D#
I'm ten years old and he's holding my hand
         A#            F 
We're talking on the front porch watching the sun go down 
                 A#
But It's just a dream
           D#               
He was a slave to  his job and he couldn't be round
A#                        F
So many things I want to say to him 
            D#                       
But I just place a rose on his grave and I talk to no end
A#                D#                            A#  F  D#
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry
A#                D#                            A#        D#  F
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry don't cry

Lead chords:  C# G# D#      C# D#  F
     A#                   F 
I'm sitting here with my kids and my wife
        D#                             A#  D#  F 
And everything that I hold dear in my life
A#                 F
We say Grace and thank the Lord 
D#
Got so much to be thankful for 
          A#                 F
Then it's up the stairs and off to bed 
        D#              (D#)       
And my little girl says I haven't had my story yet 
A#           F             D#                        A#
Everything weighing on my mind disappears just like that
         D#                                     n.c.            D#
When she lifts her head off the pillow and says I love you dad.
A#                D#                            A#  F D# 
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry
A#                D#                            A#  F D# 
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry
A#                D#                            A#  F D# 
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry 
A#                D#                            A#  F D# 
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry 
A#                D#                            A#            D# 
I don't know know why they say grown men don't cry don't cry
