Song: 7 Years
Artist: Lukas Graham
Tuning: Standard

3 Guitars (You can use electric or acoustic, just remember to adjust the amp to find the 
right sound)
Guitar 1/2: Rhythm (There's a way to play both on one guitar, I'm just lazy xD)
Guitar 3: Lead/Vocals tab

Guitar 1 | No Capo (It's the piano part that repeats a lot throughout the song)

[Intro]

e|-----6p5------------------6p5---------------------|
B|---------8p6---6---6---6------8p6---6---6---6-----|
G|-------------7---7---7------------7---7---7-------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2: Capo on 3rd Fret! This is the piano chords throughout the song

Chords used IMPORTANT INFO:
Em
G
G*: When you see "G*" only play strings {E A D G}(Top 4) of the G chord. For some reason 
it sounds perfect.
D
Dm7
C
+/-n: Number of frets to move up/down in reference to normal chord position

Uncommon Chords:
D-1: it's just the first fret on the B string and strum the D chord strings
D-2: Just open strum strings {D G B e}(Bottom 4)
E*: Play E major one fret up and on strings {E A D} instead of {A D G}


[Intro] The TAB is just there to help with timing in the intro

[Chorus 1]

Em                     G*                Em
Once I was seven years old my momma told me
N.C.                                       D
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                     G*                Em
Once I was seven years old


[Verse 1]

Em           D    G                    G              C
It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
             C            C               D                Dm7+1
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
   Dm7+1  Dm7+3   D+5               D+5            D-1
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
      D-1             D-1              D
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure


[Chorus 2]

Em         Em     D     G      G          C
Once I was eleven years old my daddy told me
   C              C                 D
Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely
G          G      D     Em    Em    G*
Once I was eleven years old


[Verse 2]

Em           D    G             G               C
I always had that dream like my daddy before me
                     C               D               Dm7+1
So I started writing songs, I started writing stories
                    Dm7+3|D+5                            D-1
Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me
           D-1            D-1            D              G
Cause only those I really love will ever really know me


[Chorus 3]

Em            D     G                 C
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
C                  C                  D
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Em            D     G                 C    C    C    C
Once I was 20 years old


[Verse 3]

Em         D  G              D                 C
I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure
        C                 C                D             Dm7+1
Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major
             Dm7+3|D+5         D+5            D-1
I got my boys with me at least those in favor
                D-1           D-1                D
And if we don't meet before I leave, I hope I'll see you later


[Chorus 4]

Em            D     G       G         C
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
      C                  C              D
I was writing about everything, I saw before me
Em            D     G       G         C    C    C    C
Once I was 20 years old
Em               D     G        G               C
Soon we'll be 30 years old, our songs have been sold
      C                   C                     D
We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming
Em               D     G              C                  Dm7+1
Soon we'll be 30 years old


[Verse 4]

N.C.                          D+5
I'm still learning about life
N.C.                             D-1
My woman brought children for me
            N.C.
So I can sing them all my songs
          D                 Dm7+1
And I can tell them stories
N.C.                        D+5
Most of my boys are with me
N.C.                             D-1
Some are still out seeking glory
           D-1            D-1
And some I had to leave behind
           D-2
My brother I'm still sorry


[Bridge]

Em              D     G       G          D
Soon I'll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61
         D                  G              G          C
Remember life and then your life becomes a better one
         C            D              G           Em
I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
          Em                E*             E*
I hope my children come and visit, once or twice a month


[Chorus 5]

Em              D     G           G                  D
Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
          D             Dm7+1            D       Em
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me
                D     G              C    C    C    C
Soon I'll be 60 years old
Em              D     G           G                  C
Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
          C             C                D
Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me
Em              D     G
Soon I'll be 60 years old


[Chorus 1 recap]

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