CM7      Em7           FM7      Am9   Am    FM7
Mem'ries      light the corners of my mind,
    Em7               E7  Am      Am+7     FM7  
Misty water-colored mem'ries        
      E7sus4 E7  CM7       Am7    Dm7     G7
of the way   we were.
  CM7      Em7      FM7         Am9      Am    FM7
Scattered pictures     of the smiles we left behind,
           Em7     E7  Am  Am+7 FM7       E7sus4 E7 CM7    C7
Smiles we gave to one another      for the way   we were.

FM7                   Em7    Dm7
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Em            Em7          A7sus4      A7
Or has time rewritten every line?
Dm             Dm+7     Dm7
If we had the chance to do it all again, 
Em7      CM7        F         G7
Tell me, would we, could we?

  CM7    Em7      FM7          Am9      Am    FM7
Mem'ries   may be beautiful and yet
            Em7    E7    Am  Am+7    FM7      
What's too painful to re-mem-ber,    
        E7sus4   E7    Am7    Am7/G     FM7
We simply choose to forget.
             Em7     FM7           Em7   FM7
So it's the laughter     we will remember
               Em7 Am7  Dm7
Whenever we re-mem-ber 

   Dm7/G    CM7    FM7     F
The way we were, 
    Fm      C     FM7    CM7
The way we were.

This version is great for slow finger-picking and singing along
