Old Man : Harvest 


[Intro]

 FM7       D Dsus4 D    
 FM7       D Dsus4 D  


[Chorus]

 FM7                                     D          
 Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were     
 FM7                                     D          
 Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were     


[Instrumental]

 D F C G  D F C F

DWB: (try a quick F-G at the end of the phrase on the way back to D)
     

[Verse 1]
         
 D       F               
 Old man look at my life 
 C                       G           
 Twenty four and there's so much more
 D               F       
 Live alone in a paradise
      C                 F
 That makes me think of two

DWB: (try a quick F-G at the end of the verse on the way back to D)


[Verse 2]

 D          F           
 Love lost, such a cost,
 C                   G              
 Give me things that don't get lost.
 D                C               
 Like a coin that won't get tossed
 F               G   
 Rollin' home to you.


[Instrumental]

 D Am7 Em7 G D/F#

DWB: (Between to D and Am7, try Dsus4->D->D9->D, pulling-off the high E from the
3rd fret to 2nd fret to open E, then a quick punch on the 2nd fret again)


[Verse 3]
       
 D                                    Am7      Em7  G
 Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you
 D                             Am7       Em7       G 
 I need someone to love me the whole day through
 D                                   Am7         Em7  
 Oh, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.


[Instrumental]

 D F C G  D F C F

(DWB: play a quick F-G at the end of the phrase on the way back to D)


[Verse]

    D          F                        
 Lullabies, look in your eyes,
 C                       G  
 Run around the same old town.
 D          F   
 Doesn't mean that much to me 
 C                       G  
 To mean that much to you
 D          F   
 I've been first and last
 C                       G  
 Look at how the time goes past.
 D          F   
 But I'm all alone at last.
 C                       G  
 Rolling home to you.


[Chorus]

 FM7              D    Dsus4     D  
 Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were
FM7              D    Dsus4     D  
 Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were

[Outro]

D F C G
D       


 notes :
 FM7 : x00560
 Dsus4 : x00233
 D9 : x00320
 Am7 : x002010
 Em7 : 022030

 FM7 is x00560, and you repeatedly hammer-on the third (G) string (0h5)
 The mention of Dsus4 is to indicate that you should fiddle around with the
 high E string, between D, Dsus4 and D9.

(DWB: I made the corrections he notes in the next paragraph, and fixed up the ending)

Just looking at the file right now, i wonder if the line: D F C G  D F C G
 (or D F C G x2 )  is correct - strikes me it should end in F. hmmm
 
If you make any additions or corrections - let me know of them!
 cheers! rcwoods@unix1.tcd.ie

you are missing an Em in the chorus...listen to the song and watch the video closely...Em is there...very quickly but it is there.
