[Intro]
Em  G  Cmaj7  D
Em  G  Cmaj7  D

[Chorus 1]
Em                      G
Once I was seven years old,
              Cmaj7
My momma told me,             
                                            D
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                      G           Cmaj7
Once I was seven years old

[Verse 1]
Em            D   G
It was a big big world,
                              C
But we thought we were bigger
                           
Pushing each other to the limits,
          D
We were learning quicker
Em          D      G 
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor           
C                                        D
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

[Chorus 2]
Em                D       G
Once I was eleven years old
              C
My daddy told me
                                     D
Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely
Em                D      G          C
Once I was eleven years old

[Verse 2]
Em            D       G
I always have that dream
                      C 
Like my Daddy before me
                       
So I started writing songs,
            D
I started writing stories
Em               D       G
Something about that glory  
                       
Just always seemed to bore me,
C                          
'Cause only those I really love 
           D
Will ever really know me

[Chorus 3]
Em                D       G
Once I was twenty years old,
              C
My story got told,
                                       D
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Em                D       G          C
Once I was twenty years old

[Verse 3]
Em          D    G
I only see my goals,
          
I don't believe in failure
C                          
'Cause I know the smallest voices,
         D
They can make it major,
Em             D    G
I got my boys with me at least those in favor
C                             
And if we don´t meet before I leave,
            D
I hope I'll see you later.

[Chorus 4]
Em            D        G
Once I was twenty years old
              C
My story got told
                        
I was writing about everything,
        D
I saw before me
Em               D     G          C
Once I was twenty years old

[Chorus 5]
Em               D       G
Soon we´ll be 30 years old,
                      C
Our songs have been sold
                        
We've traveled around the world
                D
And we´re still roaming
Em               D       G         C
Soon we´ll be 30 years old

[Verse 4]
Em                         G
I´m still learning about life

My woman brought children for me
C
So I can sing them all my songs
           D
And I can tell them stories
Em                       G
Most of my boys are with me
                              C
Some are still out seeking glory

And some I had to leave behind
            C/B
My brother I´m still sorry

[Bridge]
C                  D    Em
Soon I´ll be sixty years old
                   D   
My daddy got sixty-one
                            G/B
Remember life and then your life
                 
Becomes a better one
C                   
I made a man so happy
D             Em
When I wrote a letter once
Bsus4                        B
I hope my children come and visit,
              
Once or twice a month

[Chorus 6]
C                  D    Em 
Soon I´ll be sixty years old
                          D
Will I think the world is cold
                          G/B
Or will I have a lot of children
        
Who can warm me
C                  D     Em    C  
Soon I´ll be sixty years old
Em                 D      G    
Soon I´ll be sixty years old,
                          C
Will I think the world is cold

Or will I have a lot of children
        D
Who can warm me
Em                  D    G       C
Soon I´ll be sixty years old

[Outro]
Em                      G
Once I was seven years old,
              Cmaj7
My momma told me,             
                                            D
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                D    G           Cmaj7
Once I was seven years old
Em                 D    G 
Once I was seven years old
