C                 Am           C
The greatest man I never knew
                     Am    C
Lived just down the hall
               Am           C
And everyday we said hello
                     F    C F
But never touched at all
               C      F
He was in his paper
              Am   C 
I was in my room
               Am                F  G   C
How was I to know he thought I hung the moon
C                 Am           C
The greatest man I never knew
                      Am
Came home late every night
                  Am          C
He never had too much to say 
                    F     C F
Too much was on his mind
                 C
I never really knew him
       F                Am  C
Oh and now it seems so sad
              Am              F   G  C     Em
Everything he gave to us took all he had
Em            F  
Then the days turned into years
        C            G               C  Em
And the memories to black and white
Em                    F
He grew cold like an old winter wind
Am                 G
Blowing across my life
C                   Am           C
The greatest words I never heard
                    Am   C
I guess I'll never hear
                       Am          C 
The man I thought would never die
                     F      C F
S'been dead almost a year
               C
He was good in business
              F        C       Am   C
But there was business left to do
                 Am
He never said he loved me
         F       G C        
Guess he thought I knew

....beautiful song isn't it...*applauds*
