Capo 5th fret Am G/B C D/F# Time was, it was all ahead of me. Csus2 G/B D/F# G These days it seems I'm as faded as these jeans, C G/B D/A And what was once a dollar's now a dime. Csus2 G/B D/F# Em Sweet youth goes on the petals of a rose. C D/F# Now it looks like I'm wearing the time. C D/F# G Like an old, old friend, C D/F# G Time and me go way back when. Bm+b6 C Em But I know now, what I didn't know then, C G/B Am7 D/F# I wish I could start all over again.

In my field, every spring the green grass grows,
While flowers flourish as they climb.
Yellow and blue, every year their lives renew,
While I'm left behind, wearing the time.

Like an old, old friend,
Time and me go way back when.
But I know now, what I didn't know then,
I wish I could start all over again.


C D/F# G Time was, it was all ahead of me. Em C D/F# G I faced it, embraced it, and it was said of me Em C D/F# G That I loved life so much that I could taste it. C G/B Am G Am7 D/F# No one ever thought that I would waste it.

Like an old, old friend,
Time and me go way back when.
But I know now, what I didn't know then,

  C            G/B   C - G/B - D
I wish I could start,
C            G/B       Am7 D/F#   G
Wish I could start all o  -  ver again.
            C    G
Wearing the time.
            C    G
Wearing the time.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton & Susan Graham White, 1994)
