[Verse 1]

 Em                         G               Cmaj7
Once I was Seven years old, my momma told me,   
 Cmaj7                                     Dadd4
go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                     G     Cmaj7
once I was Seven years old

Em         D/F#     G                           G                                
It was a big big world,  but we thought we were bigger.
 Cmaj7                                              Dadd4        
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker.
Em         D/F#    G                          
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Cmaj7                                         Dadd4 
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure
-------------------------------------------------------------
[Verse 2]

Em         D/F#         G                  Cmaj7
Once I was eleven years old, my daddy told me,
Cmaj7                                Dadd4
go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely.
Em         D/F#         G   Cmaj7
Once I was eleven years old

Em       D/F#      G                          Cmaj7
I always have that dream like my Daddy before me
Cmaj7                                         Dadd4
So I´m started writing songs I started writing stories
Em              D/F# G                                Cmaj7                    
Something about the glory, just always seemed to bore me,
Cmaj7                                               Dadd4    
Cause only those I really love will ever really know me 
--------------------------------------------------------------
[Verse 3]

Em         D/F#         G                 Cmaj7
Once I was twenty years old, my story got told,
Cmaj7                                 Dadd4
before the morning sun, when life was lonely.
Em         D/F#   G        Cmaj7
Once I was twenty years old

Em             D/F#    G
I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure.
Cmaj7                                             Dadd4
Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major,
Em       D/F#     G
I got my boys with me, at least those in favour
Cmaj7                                                 Dadd4  
and if we don´t meet before I leave, I hope to see you later.

Em                 D     G                            G
Most of my boys are with me some are still out seeking glory
