[Verse 1]
   F#m      C#m/E    Dmaj7
As far as my eyes can see,

C#m7  Dmaj7    C#m7   Bm7
    |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

            F#m         C#m/E   Dmaj7
There are shadows ap - prouching me,

C#m7  Dmaj7    C#m7   Bm7
    |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

         Am               E/G#     Em/G         D/F#
And to those I leave be - hind, I wanted you to know,
        Dm/F             Am/E
You've always shared my deepest thoughts,
    B7sus4   B7    E7sus4  E7
You follow where I go!


[Verse 2]
    Am   Em/G   F                    Am
And oh---oh,       when I'm old and wise,
Dm                     Am/C
    Bitter words mean little to me,
B7sus4          B7       E7sus4              E7
        Autumn winds will blow right through me,
     Am      Em/G   F                    Am
And some---- day,       in the mists of time,
Dm                  Am/C
    When they ask me if I knew you,
    B7sus4      B7     E7sus4    E7       F
I'd smile, and say, you were a friend of mine,
          G/F              Em7           Am   Am/G
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes,
F       G/F              A
Oh---, when I'm old and wise!


[Verse 3]
   F#m       C#m/E    Dmaj7
As far as my eyes can see,

            F#m          C#m/E   Dmaj7
There are shadows sur - rounding me,

C#m7  Dmaj7    C#m7   Bm7
    |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

        Am                E/G#    Em/G            D/F#
And to those I leave be - hind, I want you all to know,
        Dm/F             Am/E
You've always shared my darkest hours,
    B7sus4     B7    E7sus4  E7
I'll miss you when I go!


[Verse 4]
    Am   Em/G   F                    Am
And oh---oh,       when I'm old and wise,
Dm                    Am/C
    Heavy words that tossed and blew me,
B7sus4              B7        E7sus4        E7
       Like autumn winds, will blow right through me,
     Am      Em/G   F                    Am
And some---- day,       in the mists of time,
Dm                   Am/C
    When they ask you if you knew me,
     B7sus4  B7     E7sus4    E7       F
Re - member that you were a friend of mine,
        G/F           Em7             Am   Am/G
As the final curtain falls before my eyes,
F      G/F               A
Oh---, when I'm old and wise!
