Real Men Cry
The Elms

F      Fm  C                      C/B
Real   Men cry to their mothers, laugh with the others
     Dm                     F     G
When all the jokes are on them
         C                             C/B
They're rough and they're tumble, but inside their humble
     Dm                      F       G
When nobody's looking they even get sad
            F     Am G           F         Am                 G
and they'd talk all night, they made up a grave when their  puppy died
              F                            G
And when you get past our egos, these's a heart that wants to be just like

C          C/B                  Am                  F             G
Jesus, the Man of all men, the only one that makes hearts whole again
         C                                  C/B
And he could have backed down, with those people around
        Dm                            F    G   C (play C 1st time only)
But he proved for the last time that real men die

verse 2:
               C                      C/B
Well you can black out your windows, go where the wind blows
          Dm                      F       G
But you answer to something someday
C                         C/B
Bob said it best when his slow train went west
     Dm                       F   G
But dignity just doesn't pay
          F    Am  G     F             Am        G
We could talk all night, blow up mailboxes with dynamite
         F                           G
But when we can't impress comes the real test are we just like...

repeat chours(finish chours with Csus C Fmaj7  C)

repeat "We coud talk all night" phrase from verse 2

repeat chorus (finish chords with  F Am G)

repeat "he proved for the last time that real men die" phrase, then end with:

C  C/B Am F-G  C C/B  Am F-G  C

when it says he even made a grave when his puppy died. it is supposed to say... you can even break down if you think you might.

Fanned To Flame - 2004-03-21

actually there's 2 or so versions of the song... both of those lyrics are right and are interchangable :>

Yeah. The puppy version was the first version.
