Lyrics

Verse- Ever since I was a small boy

They told me crime doesn’t pay

From the time I got my first toy

That’s what grown-ups used to say

Verse- Ev’ry time I saw a movie

From the wild west to brave new world

The one thing I could always count on

I knew the good guy got the girl…so

Chorus- After all that we been through

And I stood fast through thick and thin

Why am I here now, without you

I thought the good guy’s supposed to win (resolves)

Verse- Doesn’t seem to be that distant

When I sat there back in school

It only seems to me an instant

When someone preached the golden rule

Verse- Funny how it seemed so simple

I know the message never changed

But maybe I just wasn’t list’nin’

When all the rules were rearranged…so

Double Chorus- After all that we been through

And I stood fast through thick and thin

Why am I here now, without you

I thought the good guy’s supposed to win (no resolve)

After all that we been through

And I stood fast through thick and thin

Why am I here now, without you

I thought the good guy’s supposed to win (resolves)

Musical interlude with legato horns

Repeat double chorus to fade
