Story behind the song
I encourage everyone to visit Vernes soundclick page and experience
the journey of this man's life experiences.
Experiences that most of us will never encounter in this day of age.
Verne is a encyclopedia of knowledge with a deep history we can learn upon. That been said, His words in this song "Living Without Tears"
can also be heard with his original version like no else can.
Living Without Tears

Capo 1 Key of E….banjo: adgbd
(E)They don’t listen to me (A) anymore
My words just float on (E) by
They stare past me for ever-(B) more
I don’t count …I don’t know (E) why
No, I don’t count (A) anymore
It is obvious to (E) me
Their minds are on other (B) things
More important than (E) me
There was a (A) time
When they leaned on my every (E) word
But now I (B) find
I am seldom (E) heard
Maybe that is the proper (A) way
To ignore us when were up in (E) years
No interest in what we (B) say
Getting used to life without (E) tears
(B) Getting used to life without (E) tears
