The solo that is performed while Ryan Keys grandfather speaks (Base guitar: C, Em) is

G|----9---7---5---4-2-4----

Dear Bobbie,
(C, Em)
Do you remember when you were young and very pretty? I do, I remember pleated skirts,
black and white sattle shoes. Do you remember dancing that night?
I do, I still think of you when we dance, although we cant jitterbug as we did then.

Verse 1:
Do you remember when
How long has it been?
1945 you opened my blue eyes
To see a whole new life
Do you remember when
I told you this that night,
That if you’re by my side
When everyday begins
I’ll fall for you again
I made a promise when
I told you this that night

Chorus:
And I’ll be fine
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
It’s alright, I’ll be fine
Cause when I die then I die loving you
Dm F (C,Em)
Loving you, loving you

(C, Em)
Do you remember the times we would give up on each other and get back together,
then we finally was married in 1949. We drove the yellow convertible all night long.
Do you remember? I do.

Verse 2:
Life has led us here
Together all these years
This house that we have made
Holds twenty-thousand days
And memories we’ve saved
Since life has lead us here

(Repeat Chorus)

Interlude: C-Em-C-Em-F-G

Verse 3:
C(hold) Am(hold)
I’m coming home to you
C(hold)
Stepping off my shoes
Am(hold)
Resting in my chair
F(hold)
See you standing there
G(hold)
The silver in your hair
I’m coming home to you
When I lay tonight, when I close my eyes
I know the sun will rise
Here the next life
As long as your still mine, then its alright

(Repeat chorus)

(C, Em)
You have gray hair now but you’re a beautiful women and the years have been good to both
us.
We walk slow now, but we still have each other. The glue of love is still bonding us together.
That is what I remember. Do you remember?

We kept this scene alive

Chorus 1:
Here I am I still
hold onto this
Dream we had I
won’t let ago of it
Hear me now you
will never be alone

Post chorus: Em–G–

Verse 2:
Don’t listen too close
their words are like guns
With bullets that fly
and kill what you’ve won
Some love to hate
and some tell you lies
So let’s make a toast
and kiss them goodbye
We’ll kiss them all goodbye

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Chorus 2:
Here I stand won’t
turn back again
Won’t leave you
know how hard it’s been
Hear me now [A/C#]you
will never be alone
Yeah


Interlude: D--F#m--Bm-G-D--F#m--Bm-Em- x2

Verse 3:
Let’s take what hurts
and write it all down
On these paper walls
in this empty house
And when our ink runs out
We’ll burn into the ground

(Repeat Chorus 1 and Chorus 2)

Verse:
This is the deepest cut I
Think I have ever felt
These are the things I
think but I will never
tell I’m trying to

walk these bridges
Burning beneath my [G/B]feet
Well I am an echo I am
heard but never seen

Chorus 1:
These are your
hearts Like bombs
they’re coming down
They’re falling on me now
And this my last try
Got one thing left to prove
There’s a bomber in me too

Verse 2:
This is a mirror image
Of everything I’m not
Always reflecting what I’ve
learned but was not taught
If I could make things different
If I could press restart
Then I would hold back every
breath that went too far
breath that went too far

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Interlude: C–

Bridge:
Sometimes I feel like
I am working in the dark
Collecting names collecting
all the mending hearts
And if your one that I
have missed along the way
Then I’m rehearsing all
the things I’d like to say
This isn’t easy for me
This isn’t easy

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Chorus 2:
These are [G/B]your
hearts Like bombs
they’re coming down
They’re falling on me now
And this my [G/B]last try
Got one thing left to prove
F(hold)
There’s a bomber in me too
