D              G       G        D  
count all your jewelry and your lace
D             G       Bm         A
count all the shoes beneath your bed
D              G                  G              D
and while your counting all those things in your head
C                 G                D
try and wrest the sorrow from your face

Bm            G
when you were young you courted
Bm             E
all the pretty boys
Bm           G                    A
and laughed aloud with ones they knew
Bm           G        
and soon you walked and talked
    Bm                     E A
and thought just like them too
Bm          C#m    D                E 
and now you wonder what's become of you



when you chose one to be your husband for your life
you weighed his good point by his gain
his promised security was fulfilled and you felt fine
now in your age those mellow years won't sustain 



now for imagination
where you seek out the one
who live a life of dreams they build
you have no gifts to share 
you've nothing for no one
so just watch the colors fade as you start to wilt
