Poems, prayers and promises                   John Denver

   D				      G(add A)          D
1) I've been lately thinking about    my life's time
2) Days they pass so quickly now, the nights are seldom long

				         G(add A)
1) all the things I've done and how it's been,
2) time around me whispers when it's cold.

       D			     G(add A)        D
1) and I can't help believin' in     my       own    mind
2)     The changes somehow frightens me, still I have to smile

				         G(add A)
1) I know I'm gonna hate to see it end.
2) it turns me on to think of growing old.

   D			                       G(add A)         D
1) I've seen a lot of sunshine                 slept out in the rain
2) It's tho' my life's been good to me there's still so much to do

				         G(add A)
1) spent a night or two all on my own
2) so many things my mind has never known

   D				  G(add A)        D
1) I've known my lady's pleasures had myself some friends
2) I'd like to raise a fam'ly I'd like to sail    away

				         G(add A)
1) spent a time or two in my own home.
2) dance across the mountains on the moon.

	G              A7             D               G
Ref.) I have to say it now it's been good life all in all,
                   D              Bm                  Em
      it's really fine to have a chance to hang around.
   A7     G                A7	    D                 G
      and lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire,
 		   D		      Bm           Em           A7
      while all my friends and my old lady sit and pass a pipe around
                  G                     Fm
      and talk of poems and prayers and promises
	  G                D                            Dmaj7
      and things that we believe in, how sweet it is to love someone,
	  G              A	   G		        Fmaj7
      how right it is to care, how long it's been since yesterday
      Em           D                         Dmaj7
      what about tomorrow and what about our dreams
                  G           A        D  G  D
      and all the memories we share,

G(add A): 55xx35
G       : 55xx22
A7      : xx2223
Em	: 222xxx

I would suggest only one change to this - in the chorus, just in the snippet below, make the Fm an F#m .....

G F#m
and talk of poems and prayers and promises
G D
