           D    Dm             Gm   Eb
When I was seventeen, it was a very good year.
         D
It was a very good year for small town girls
    Eb
and soft summer nights.
     D                           C
We'd hide from the lights on the village green.
           D
When I was seventeen.


INTERLUDE:(Whistling) Dm Am F A 

#2.
           Dm                   Eb
When I was twenty-one, it was a very good year.
         D                  Eb             Ab
It was a very good year for city girls who lived 

up the stair.
     D                   Ab
With perfumed hair, that came undone, when I was 
D
twenty-one.


INTERLUDE: D Dm Am F A

#3.
           Dm                    Eb
When I was thirty-five, it was a very good year.
         D         Eb       F    Am
It was a very good year for blue blooded girls
   Eb
of independent means.
     D                         Eb
We'd ride in limousines, their chauffeurs would 

drive.
           D
When I was thirty-five.


INTERLUDE: D Dm Am F A


#4.
Dm          D                   Gm     Eb
But now the days are short, I'm in the autumn of 

the year.
          D                   Eb
And now I think of my life as vintage wine from fine 

old kegs.
         Dm                    C
From the brim to the dregs, it poured sweet and clear.
         D
It was a very good year.


OUTRO: Dm Am A Dm




A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
