D G

(verse)
D                       G                      
Sitting here in Avalon, looking at the pouring rain
D                            G
Summertime has come and gone and everybody's home again
A                                        C                G
Closing down for the season, I found the last of the souvenirs
A                                           C                     G
I can still taste the wedding cake and it's sweet after all these years

(chorus)
G             C            D
These are the last words I have to say
C                             D
That's why it took so long to write
C                              D
There will be other words some other day
C                          D
But that's the story of my life

(verse)
D                                G
There's comfort in my coffee cup and apples in the early fall
D                                   G
They're pulling all the moorings up and gathering at the Legion Hall
A                                           C           G
They swept away all the streamers after the Labor Day parade
A                                            C             G
There's Nothing left for a dreamer now, only one final serenade

(chorus)
G                 C            D
And these are the last words I have to say
C                       D
Before another age goes by
C                               D
With all those other songs I'll have to play
C                          D  A  G
But that's the story of my life

(bridge)
G           C              G            D
And it's so clear standing here where I am
F               C          G
Ain't that what justice is for?
Bb          F       Bb    C      G       D
Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn anymore

(verse - 1st und 2nd line instrumental)
D  G
D  G
A                                            C                   G
Stack the chairs on the table tops, hang the sheets on the chandeliers
A                                          C                     G
It slows down but it never stops, ain't it sweet after all these years

(chorus)
G                 C            D
And these are the last words I have to say
C                           D
It's always hard to say goodbye
C                             D
But now it's time to put this book away
C                          D
But that's the story of my life

(chorus)
G             C            D
These are the last words I have to say
C                             D
That's why it took so long to write
C                              D
There will be other words some other day
C                          D
Ain't that the story of my life

(chorus)
G             C            D
These are the last words I have to say
C                       D
Before another age goes by
C                               D
With all those other songs I'll have to play
C                          D
Ain't that the story of my life

(chorus - instrumental fade out)
G C D
