Do You Remember Walter? Written by Ray Davies Demystified by Jim Smart Intro is a C chord. It’s just a C scale, starting on G. CWalter, remember when the world was young And all the girls knewE Walter's nBame? FWalter, isn't it a shaCmme the way our liFttle world has Bchanged? Cm7Do you remember, Walter, playing cricket in the thDunder and the raiGn? Cm7Do you remember, Walter, smoking cigarettes behindD your garden gateG? Yes, AWalter was myE mate, But GWalter, my old frFiend, where are you noCw? cool drum fill over bouncing C chord... melody plays over C chord, then ... EWalter's nBame FWalter, isn't it a shaCmme the way our liFttle world has Bchanged? Cm7Do you remember, Walter, how we said we'd fight the woDrld so we'd be frGee. Cm7We'd save up all our money and we'd buy a boat and saDil away to seaG. But iAt was not to Ebe. I Gknew you then but dFo I know you noCw? CWalter, you are just an echo of the world we knew so Elong agBo FIf you saw me Cm7now you wouldn't eFven know my naBme. Cm7I bet you're fat and married and you're always home in bDed by half-past Geight. And if I tCm7alked about the old times you'd get bored and you'll have noDthing left to Gsay.
Yes pAeople often cEhange, but mGemories of pFeople can remaiCn.
