[Verse 1]
Am                                     E7
   "Why, hello! Say, ...can I buy you...  another glass of beer?"
Am                                         E7
   "Well, thanks a lot, that's kind of you,  it's nice to know you care,
F                     E7+      E7       Am     Am7/G
   These days there's so much...  going on-----------,
F          E7+  E7        Am    Am7/G
   No one seems to wanna know,
F            E7+   E7           Am   Am7/G    D/F#
   I may be just...     an old sol - dier to some...
       F                               E     E7
But I know... how it feels... to grow old!"

[Verse 2]
Am                                      E7
   "Yeah, that's right! You can see me here most every night,
Am                                   E7
   You always see me staring at the walls, and at the lights,
F                     E7+   E7           Am            Am7/G
   Funny, ...I re - member,     oh, it's years ago, I'd say,
F                    E7+    E7           Am                      Am7/G
   I'd stand at that bar...    with my friends, who've passed a - way,
F                    E7+      E7      Am     Am7/G     D7/F#
   And drink three times the beer that I can drink to - day,
        F                               E     E7
Yes, I know... how it feels... to grow old!"

[Verse 3]
Am                                  Am7/G
   "I know what they're saying, son,     'There goes Old Mad Joe again!'
      Well, I may be mad at that,
I've seen enough...  to make a man go out of his brains,
Am                                                        E7
    Well, do they know what it's like to have a graveyard as a friend?
        Am7              D7
'Cause that's where they are, boy, all of them,
Fmaj7                                             E    E7
Don't seem likely I'll get friends like that a - gain!"

[Verse 4]
Am                                              E7
   "Well, it's time I moved off, but it's been great just listening to you,
Am                                 E7
    And I might even see you next time I'm passing through,
F                        E7+       E7  Am    Am7/G
   You're right, there's so much going on----------,
F          E7+   E7          Am    Am7/G
   No one seems  to want to know---------,
F                      E7+        E7                   Am   Am7/G   D7/F#
   So keep well, keep well, old friend, and have a - nother drink on me,
           F                   E7+                          Am   Am7/G
Just ig - nore all the others,      you've got your memo - ries-------,
                              Fmaj7  E7+  E7    Am
You've got your memories!"  |  /  /   /   /  |  /  ||
