ALove endures, it clings Daway AWhen asked to leave, it begs to Dstay ALike the perfect song, at imperfect Dtimes AIt's the way the chord's struck with the Drhymes DSo let your troubles roll by. AHe knows he can help himself DHe can tell by a look at the books on his shelf AAnd someone somewhere loses her son before DHer own sunset is said and done. AAnd she dreams of sunflowers bentover DFrozen in the snow and thinks Colorado AThen plays her life back in slow-motion DTo keep in touch with that raw emotion AIn the night, crushed empty can DOlive Oil's waiting for her man ATo come in from the fight that will change their life DFor good this timeStandard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
RefrainWhen all of your Atears dry, let your troubles roll Dby When all of your Atears dry, let your troubles roll Dby When all of your Atears dry, let your troubles roll Dby, let your troubles roll by. A D ALike New Year's Eve, tonight's underway Dbut tomorrow you'll wake up afraid of the day, ACause underneath the scars of your broken dreams DAn undone war still wages and stings AYou fear the year will blow like a breeze through a DRainbow you swear it's there but you can't grab a AHold, so you sit and cry and wonder Dwhy, why? to Refrain ASo many cities and windows and lives and Dthrough each one there's a soul that strives to survive ASo pay no mind, my sorrow's fine DThe day is alive and that's why i cry AIt's the New Year's Toast grab your list to conspire, DThe last snake hissed as he was thrown in the fire AYou've come far and though you're far from the end DYou don't mind where you are cause you know where you've been ALike a culture vulture sprawled out on the floor Dlike a dead devil sailor washed up on the shore AWith nothing of note but the old captain's coat DAnd a burning boat you sank with your salty Atears dry, let your troubles roll Dby When all of your your Atears dry,let your troubles roll Dby When all of your your Atears dry,let your troubles roll Dby, let your troubles roll by.
