Drop D tuning D-Lick D Gadd9 D I've been lately thinking about my life's time - Gadd9 All the things I've done and how it's been. D Gadd9 D And I can't help believing in my own mind, Gadd9 I know I'm gonna hate to see it end. D Gadd9 D I've seen a lot of sunshine, slept out in the rain, Gadd9 Spent a night or two all on my own. D Gadd9 D I've known my lady's pleasures, had myself some friends, Gadd9 Spent a time or two in my own home. G A D G 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 A D G Lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire D Bm Em A While all my friends and my old lady sit and pass a pipe around. G F#m Em D Talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in, 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, what about tomorrow, Dmaj7 G A And what about our dreams and all the memories we share? D-Lick

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

I have to say it now, it's been a good life all in all,
It's really fine to have a chance to hang around.
Lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
While all my friends and my old lady sit and watch the sun go down.
Talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in,
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care.
How long it's been since yesterday, what about tomorrow,
And what about our dreams and all the memories we share?


D-Lick
