       G               C/G

                      ( Whilst holding down C chord, move little finger off
                        2nd string, & use to play 'A' note * on 1st string)


[Verse 1]

          G               D              C           Am7
It's not time to make a change, just re-lax, take it easy,
               G                 Em                Am                D
You're still young, that's your fault, there's so much you have to know,
        G             D           C             Am7
Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry,
        G         Em           Am7   D
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy


[Verse 2]

        G               Bm7          C                 Am7         G
I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy to be calm,
              Em                  Am7  D                G            Bm7
When you've found something going on,    but take your time, think a lot,
                  C             Am7                 G                Em
Why, think of everything you've got, for you will still be here to-morrow,
            D        G  C/G     G   C/G
But your dreams may not


[Verse 3]

        G             Bm7            C               Am7
How can I try to ex-plain?    When I do , he turns a-way again!
       G                  Em               Am7  D
It's always been the same,   the same old story,
            G            Bm7           C         Am7
From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen,
               G          Em           D     G
Now there's a way, and I know that I have to go away,
    D     C      G   C/G    G    C/G
I know I have to go

[Verse 5]

          G              D                C              Am7
It's not time to make a change, just sit down, take it slowly,
     ( A-way ,        a-way,           a-way )

               G                      Em                     Am
You're still young,    that's you're fault       there's so much
                   ( I----            ----know----

            D                   G           D            C             Am7
you have to go through, Find a girl,settle down, if you want you can marry,
 I  have to make this---    de-cision---          ---a-lone!)

         G            Em           Am7   D
Look at me ,    I am old, but I'm happy
          ( No !)


[Verse 6]

          G           Bm7            C               Am7
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
      ( Stay ,       stay,         stay )

       G                   Em             Am7                 D
It's hard,      but it's harder    to ig-nore it!
          ( Why---          ---must---        ---you go ,and make---

                   G           Bm7            C                   Am7
If they were     right, I'd a-gree, but it's them, they know, not me,
     ---this de-cision----            ----a-lone? )

               G          Em           D      G          D      C      G
Now there's a way, and I know that I have to go away, I know I have to go
