Strawbs - On Growing Older

G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C

[Verse 1]
    G         C              G         C
The scarecrow stood with his head held high
  G          C             G     C
Admiring the view from the hill
    G         C             G          C
The waterfall scattered its glistening jewels
       G           C          G      C
As the heron stood gracefully still
   D                      G
It seemed I looked without seeing
  C         G            D
I failed to grasp what I saw
    C      G        D         G
For all of Nature's beautiful gifts
  F                     G
I blissfully chose to ignore

G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C

[Verse 2]
G     C           G             C
Sandy beaches and soft swelling tides
  G          C         G      C
Invite the inquisitive young
    G       C           G       C
And caviar, oysters and pate de foie
  G          C        G       C
Invite the discerning tongue
   D                      G
So comes the desire to be lost awhile
       C             G      D
In the depths of the forest glade
          C         G            D       G
Midst the cool deep greens where ancient oaks
     F                         G
Cast wonderous spells in their shade

G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C

[Verse 3]
       G           C       G           C
And if sometimes I feel in retrospect
  G              C           G     C
A regret for the waste of my youth
       G          C            G          C
Then I pause to reflect that I still have time
  G            C           G      C
Before growing long in the tooth
    D                            G
To achieve all the things that I should have achieved
     C        G       D
When idleness led me astray
    C      G       D           G
And being aware of what I have missed
      F                     G    F   G
I'm extending my use of the day
