WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



         INTRO:  Am - Dm - E  (twice)


                     Am                   Dm      E
             I.  the windshield is a graveyard of bugs.
                 Am                   Dm     E
                 we shall make them tiny tombstones
                    Am                         Dm   E
                 of broken aspirin etched with tiny names
                      Am          Dm     E
                 like Ed, Mo, Hi, Jo and Bo,
                 Am          Dm     E      Am   Dmsus4   E+9
                 Ed, Mo, Hi, Jo and Bo.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  Am - Dm - E - F-G  (twice)


                 Am             Dm
      CHORUS A:  their children are crying,
                 E       F  G
                 it's forever.
                 Am         Dm
                 for lovers left lonely,
                 E       F  G
                 it's forever.
                 Am          Dm
                 to brothers and sisters,
                 E       F  G
                 it's forever.
                 Am          Dm
                 for all the survivors,
                 E       F  G  F
                 it's forever.


                 F             C
      BRIDGE A:  the dead miss no one.
                            G
                 they never cry.
                              Aaug5   Caug5   E
                 they have no fear.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  (like chorus)


                 F                            C
      BRIDGE B:  there are no clouds above me now.
                           G
                 now I can live.
                           Aaug5   Caug5   E
                 I have no fear.

                 Am                      Dm      E
            II.  all around, the rain is falling down.
                 Am                     Dm         E
                 wipers blink the giant windshield eye.
                 Am                         Dm     E
                 in the liquid strobelight, all is clear.
                     Am          Dm     E
                 for Ed, Mo, Hi, Jo and Bo,

                 . . . forever.
