[Intro]
Em  G  C X2

[Chorus 1]

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

[Verse 1]

Em          D     G
It was a big big world,
               
but we thought we were bigger.
C                           
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 see before I leave,
          D
I hope to 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 5]
Em             D           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
                 F#/D
my brother I´m still sorry


[Chorus 6]

C                 D    Em
Soon I´ll be sixty years old
                   D   
my daddy got sixty-one
                            F#/D
remember life and then your life
                 
becomes a better one
C                   D
I made a man so happy

when I wrote a letter once
Bm                           
I hope my children come and visit
              
once or twice a month


[Chorus 7]
C                D     G    
Soon I´ll be sixty years old
                           D
will I think the world is cold
                           F#/D
or will I have a lot of children
        D
who can warm me
C               D      G       C
Soon I´ll be sixty years old

[Chorus 7 repeat]

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


[Chorus 8]

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

How can't anyone notice that the third last set of lyrics, have completely wrong chords? If you play with the song to these chords, there is no way in hell you could not notice this..

Maybe for some of you this is easier. Try not to focus to match the chords with words but just with the rhythm.
