D        G    D* G* D*

D                               G            D
I've been lately thinking about my life's time
D                                     G
All the things I've done and how it's been
    D                         G         D
And I can't help believing in my own mind
  D                             G
I know I'm gonna hate to see it end
     D                       G                D
I've seen a lot of sunshine, slept out in the rain
D                              G
Spent a night or two all on my own
     D                          G                  D
I've known my lady's pleasures, had myself some friends
    D                              G
And spent a night or two in my own home

      G              A7              D                G
And I have to say it now it's been a good life all in all
            D              Bm              Em      A
It's really fine to have a chance to hang around
    G                A7       D                 G
And lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
             D                  Bm           Em             A    Asus4  A
While all my friends and my old lady sit and pass the pipe around

            G                     F#m          G                D
And talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in
    D              Dmaj7             G              A
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care
    G                    F#m          Em            D
How long it's been since yesterday and what about tomorrow
    D              Dmaj7              G           A    Asus4   A*
And what about our dreams and all the memories we share

D        G    D* G* D*

    D                              G                   D
The days they pass so quickly now, nights are seldom long
    D                                 G
And time around me whispers when it's cold
    D                            G                    D
The changes somehow frighten me, still I have to smile
   D                               G
It turns me on to think of growing old
    D                                        G                    D
For though my life's been good to me there's still so much to do
   D                             G
So many things my mind has never known
    D                           G                D
I'd like to raise a family, I'd like to sail away
    D                                 G
And dance across the mountains on the moon

      G              A7              D                G
And I have to say it now it's been a good life all in all
            D              Bm              Em     A
It's really fine to have a chance to hang around
    G                A7       D                 G
And lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
             D                  Bm           Em             A    Asus4   A
While all my friends and my old lady sit and pass the pipe around

            G                     F#m          G                D
And talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in
    D              Dmaj7             G              A
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care
    G                    F#m          Em          D
How long it's been since yesterday and what about tomorrow
    D              Dmaj7              G           A    Asus4   A*
And what about our dreams and all the memories we share

D        G    D* G* D*
