Intro: AA chord

AA chord
We never had that much to do
                                     DD chord
So we'd just lay around in someone’s house
  EE chord
Someday I’ll have it all again
                   AA chord
Just like way back when


AA chord
Back then we’d sleep until the afternoon
                             DD chord
Then we'd just get up and go outside
       EE chord
Open a window, let the breeze blow in,
               AA chord
Forget everything


    DD chord                  AA chord                   EE chord           DD chord
Yea, those will be the days that I will be missing you
                         AA chord                  EE chord            DD chord
When I’m older, when I’m gray and when I’ll stop working
                  AA chord
I hope that I can say
                     EE chord    
When all my days are done
                             AA chord
We were just having fun


AA chord
Well we’d go drinking in the afternoon
                                DD chord
Lie out on the grass, and fall asleep
           EE chord                  
Oh will I ever see that girl again?
                       AA chord
The girl from way back when


AA chord
Yea, we used to share a cigarette
                                 DD chord
And t'row together everything we had
             EE chord
And then go driving in my parents’ car
                     AA chord
We never strayed too far


       DD chord                  AA chord                   EE chord           DD chord
Oh yea, those will be the days that I will be missing you
                         AA chord                  EE chord            DD chord
When I’m older, when I’m gray and when I’ll stop working
                  AA chord
I hope that I can say
                     EE chord     
When all my days are done
                 AA chord
That I had my fun

Some things are made to last

When all my days are done

That I had my fun
