Do You Remember Walter?

Written by Ray Davies
Demystified by Jim Smart

Intro is a C chord. It's just a C scale, starting on G.

Walter, remember when the world was young
                      Eb         Bb
And all the girls knew Walter's name?
F                     Cm               F              Bb
Walter, isn't it a shame the way our little world has changed?
Cm7                                               D                G
Do you remember, Walter, playing cricket in the thunder and the rain?
Cm7                                               D                G
Do you remember, Walter, smoking cigarettes behind your garden gate?
     Ab           Eb
Yes, Walter was my mate,
    G                F                     C
But Walter, my old friend, where are you now?

cool drum fill over bouncing C chord...
melody plays over C chord, then ...

Eb        Bb
Walter's name
F                     Cm               F              Bb
Walter, isn't it a shame the way our little world has changed?
Cm7                                                   D                G
Do you remember, Walter, how we said we'd fight the world so we'd be free.
Cm7                                                  D             G
We'd save up all our money and we'd buy a boat and sail away to sea.
     Ab           Eb
But it was not to be.
  G                  F              C
I knew you then but do I know you now?
C                                                    Eb     Bb
Walter, you are just an echo of the world we knew so long ago
F             Cm7               F             Bb
If you saw me now you wouldn't even know my name.
I bet you're fat and married and
                       D               G
you're always home in bed by half-past eight.
And if I talked about the old times
                                  D             G
you'd get bored and you'll have nothing left to say.
     Ab           Eb          G           F              C
Yes people often change, but memories of people can remain.

About the artist behind Do You Remember Walter Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
