          C#m      E
When I am old, and comforted,
    B                A
And done with this desire,
     C#m                G#
With memory to share my bed
          C#m      E
When I am old, and comforted,
    B                A
And done with this desire,
     C#m      G#       C#m
With peace to share my fire

     C#m     E       B         A
I'll comb my hair in scalloped bands
   C#m               G#
Beneath my laundered cap,
    C#m      E        B       A
And watch my cool and fragile hands
C#m         G#    C#m
Lie light upon my lap.

    B                      E
And I will have a sprigged gown
     B               E
With lace to kiss my throat;
     B               E
I'll draw my curtain to the town,
    G#
And hum a purring note.

    C#m     E       B      A
And I'll forget the way of tears,
    C#m               G#
And rock, and stir my tea.
    C#m   E         B        A
But oh, I wish those blessed years
     C#m     G#        C#m
Were further   than they be

    B                      E
And I will have a sprigged gown
     B               E
With lace to kiss my throat;
     B               E
I'll draw my curtain to the town,
    G#
And hum a purring note.

          C#m      E
When I am old, and comforted,
    B                A
And done with this desire,
     C#m                G#
With memory to share my bed
          C#m      E
When I am old, and comforted,
    B                A
And done with this desire,
     C#m      G#       C#m
With peace to share my fire
     C#m      G#       C#m
With peace to share my fire
