Grown Men Don't Cry - Tim McGraw
Album: Set This Circus Down
Writers: Tom Douglas/Steve Seskin

**Capo 3**

Intro: G  D  Am7  C (x2)

G                  D
I pulled into the shopping center
    Am7               C                   G                D  Am7  C        
And saw a little boy wrapped around the legs of his mother
      G                 D
Like ice cream melting they embraced
Am7             C                    G      D  Am7  C
Years of bad decisions runnin' down her face
G                     D                    Am7
All mornin' I'd been thinkin' my life's so hard
     C                        G     D             Am7  C
And they wore everything they own, livin' in a car
   G         D                Am7  C
I wanted to tell him it would be okay
               G            D            Am7    C
But I got just got in my suburban and I drove away


Chorus:
G   D            Am7           C               G  D  Am7  C  G
And I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
D            Am7           C          G      D  Am7  C
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry


      G                 D
Keep having this dream about my old man
    Am7                     C         G    D  Am7  C  
I'm 10 years old, and he's holding my hand
      G                    D                   Am7
We're talkin' on the front porch watchin' the sun go down
 C                 G              D                      Am7           C
But it was just a dream he was a slave to his job and he couldn't be around
G        D             Am7     C 
So many things I wanna say to him
            G        D                        Am7   C
But I just placed a rose on his grave, and I talked to the wind


Chorus:
G   D            Am7           C               G  D  Am7  C  G
And I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
D            Am7           C          G         D       Am7  C
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry, don't cry


Instrumental:  Bb    F    Dm  C  Bb  F  D


     G                    D
I'm sittin' here with my kids and my wife
    Am7             C                 G   D  Am7  C
And everything that I hold dear in my life
G                 D
We say grace and thank the Lord
    Am7            C
Got so much to be thankful for
          G         D              Am7                C
Then it's up the stairs and off to bed and my little girl says
G   D             Am7    C      
"I haven't had my story yet."
 G           D            Am7         C              G
Everything weighin' on my mind disappears just like that
                    D                  Am7        (no chord)
When she lifts her head off her pillow and says, "I love you Dad"

G  D  Am7  C  G

D            Am7           C               G  D  Am7  C  G
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
D            Am7           C          G      D  Am7  C
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
G   D            Am7           C               G  D  Am7  C  G
And I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
D            Am7           C          G         D       Am7  C
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry, don't cry
