John Mellencamp 
Longest Days
From: "Life, Death, Love and Freedom"

C/G  3-x-2-0-1-0
D/F# 2-x-0-2-3-2


  C/G                       G
Seems like once upon a time ago
C/G                          G
I was where I was supposed to be
C/G                      G
My vision was true and my heart was too
          Em                     D/F#
There was no end to what I could dream


  C/G                        G
I walked like a hero into the setting sun
C/G                    G
 Everyone called out my name
C/G                    G
 Death to me was just a mystery
      Em                  D/F#
I was too busy raising up Cain


C/G               G
But nothing lasts forever
     C/G                     G
Your best efforts don't always pay
 C
Sometimes you get sick
    G
And don't get better
                    Em
That's when life is short
C/G        D/F#    G
Even in its longest days


C/G                  G
So you pretend not to notice
C/G                 G
 That everything has changed
C
The way that you look
         G
And the friends you once had
Em                         D/F#
So you keep on acting the same


C/G                  G
But deep down in your soul
              C/G       G
You know you, you got no flame
C/G                      G
 And who knows then which way to go
Em             C/G        D/F#    G
 Life is short even in its longest days


Em
All I got here
     D/F#
Is a rear view mirror
Em                         D/F#
 Reflections of where I've been
Em                                       D/F#
 So you tell yourself I'll be back up on top some day
        C/G                                      D7/F#
But you know there's nothing waiting up there for you anyway


C/G           G
 Nothing lasts forever
         C/G                      G
And your best efforts don't always pay
C
 Sometimes you get sick
        G
And you don't get better
                    Em
That's when life is short
C/G        D/F#    G
Even in its longest days
C
Life is short
            D/F#    G
Even in its longest days
