E
We are young we have
Years ahead maybe
We might fall in love
             F#m
Or fall apart
          E
Fall apart
         F#m
Before it ends well we
                 E
Should try to start

Chorus
         Asus2
   So I’ll go
            B7            E
   But I’m telling you I don’t
          Asus2
   Want to go
              Asus2               B7
   I could be stuck here and happy

E
There’s a puzzle I
Work on endlessly
And I’ve got all the sides and all the corners
               F#m
But there’s a space
               E
Oh there’s a space
            F#m
Lost some pieces I
           E 
Can’t replace

           Asus2
   So I’ll be
              B7           E
   But I’m telling you I don’t
          Asus2
   Want to be
          Asus2            B7
   Just a wasted puzzle piece

E
We are old and our son
Took the dog away
And fair enough guess we’re
               F#m
Tired all the time
          E
All the time
             F#m
And you know dogs they need
                E
Ample time outside

           Asus2
   So I’ll stay
           B7              E
   But I’m telling you I don’t
           Asus2
   Want to stay

        Asus2         B7 
So I’ll brace myself against the wall
      E                Asus2
And hope to God that I don’t fall
   Asus2              B7
My bones are worn my hip won’t hold
          E
I used to be so young 
         Asus2          (start strumming the next chord)
How did I get so old?  
      Asus2                B7
Won’t you take my cane and hold my hand
          E          Asus2
You’re holding on to all I have
     Asus2             B7
Just a basket full of memories
        E                 Asus2
And I am losing more each day it seems 
       Asus2          B7
But if I can make it to the street 
              E
I’ll steal a car or a bike
              Asus2
Whatever there is to steal
       Asus2            B7
And it might get cold I just don’t care
     E              Asus2
I’m going till I’m getting there
     Asus2                B7
I’ll ride my steed all through this town

Till I.........
E
Have looked
    Asus2
Till I have found
     Asus2       B7
Your peaceful memory

Asus2               B7
Won’t you return to me
Asus2               B7
Won’t you return to me
