                               "Old Man"
                            (Bryan Maclean)

Intro:	D    Dsus4	[8X; bass enters 3rd time]
	/ / / /

Verse 1:

	I once knew a man
	Em          A            F
	Been everywhere in the world
	Gave me a tiny ivory ball
	F#m             B       G
	Said it would bring me good
	Cm                  G     Bm
	Never believed it would until
	              C        Bbsus2 [x13311]
	I have been loving you

Verse 2:

	Dear old man
	He'd seen most everything
	Gave me a piece of good advice
	Said it would do me well
	I couldn't really tell until
	I have been loving you


	Asus2 [x02200]
	Now it seems
	Things are not so strange
	I can see more clearly
	Suddenly I've found my way
	I know the old man would laugh
	                     B      G   /F#
	He spoke of love's sweeter days
	Em          A        F
	And in his eloquent way
	Bbm                         F
	I think he was speaking of you
	You are so lovely
	You didn't have to say a thing

Verse 3:

	But I remember that old man
	Telling me he'd seen the light
	Gave me a small brown leather book
	Insisted that he was right
	Cm                 G
	I only heard him slightly
	Bm         Cm         G
	   'Til I heard you whisper
	C           Bm     Cm     G    Bm  Bbsus2
	   Took you up all in my arms


	D            Dsus4   D   Dsus4
	Dear old man
	D            Dsus4   D   Dsus4
	Wise old man
	D            Dsus4   D   Dsus4
	Fine old man, now


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers

I've absolutely loved this song in particular from Forever Changes since I was 17 (i'm 41 now!). Been trying to write the tabs for this album since then, thanks to the internet all is now possible! Many thanks
