G                  Am7          D7               G     D/F#         
   I don't want to ride... the milk train any - more,
     Emsus2        Am7       B7             Em   Em7/D
I'll go to bed at nine, and waken with the dawn,
    Cmaj7                G      D/F#                  Emsus2
And lunch at half past noon,         dinner prompt at five,
       G   D/F#  Em       Em7/D        Cmaj7
The comfort of a few old friends, long passed their prime!


Am7                 A7             A7sus4              A7
Pass the tea and sympathy, for the good old days long gone,
      Cmaj7             G        D/F#      Em7                   Bm
We'll drink a toast to those who most be - lieve in what they've won,
        Am7                   A7          A7sus4         A7
It's a long, long time till morning plays wasted on the dawn,
G            D/F#      Em    Em7/D     D7                G   C/G   G   C/G
   I'll not write a - nother line, for my true love is gone!


     G                   Am7         D7           G    D/F#         
And when the guests have done, I'll tidy up the rooms,
    Emsus2            Am7        B7           Em   Em7/D
I'll turn the covers down, and gazing at the moon,
     Cmaj7             G       D/F#                      Em
I'll pray to go quite mad,          and live in long a - go,
      G     D/F#    Em     Em7/D Cmaj7
When you and I were one, so very long ago!


Am7                 A7            A7sus4               A7
Pass the tea and sympathy, for the good old days long gone,
      Cmaj7              G       D/F#       Em7                  Bm
Let's drink a toast to those who most be - lieve in what they've won,
        Am7                   A7         A7sus4         A7
It's a long, long time till morning lays wasted on the dawn,
G           D/F#       Em   Cmaj7      D7                G   C/G   G  C/G

     G              Am7       D7             G   D/F#         
And when I have no dreams to give you any - more,
     Emsus2           Am7      B7               Em   Em7/D
I'll light a blazing fire, and wait within the door,
    Cmaj7              G       D/F#  Em7                 Bm
And throw my life a - way, 'I wonder why!' they all will say,
Am7          Cmaj7                D7          G
Now I lay me down to sleep for - ever, and a day!


 Am7                A7             A7sus4             A7
Pass the tea and sympathy, for the good old days are dead,
      Cmaj7              G       D/F#        Em7                    Bm
Let's drink a toast to those who best sur - vived the life they've lead,
       Am7                    A7        A7sus4            A7
It's a long, long time till morning, so build your fires high,
 G    D/F#    Em     Cmaj7
Now I lay me down to sleep, 
       D7           Bb             C               G     C/G      G
For - ever by your side!
