Intro: F
       Gm7 Bb/F | Ebmaj9 Ebmaj9 Ebmaj9 F
       Gm7 Bb | Ebmaj9

Chorus:
     Gm7                    Bb/F
     Once I was seven years old,
                  Ebmaj9
     My mama told me,
     “Go make yourself some friends
                  F
     Or you’ll be lonely”,
     Gm7                    Bb   Ebmaj9
     Once I was seven years old.

Gm            F/A Bb
It was a big, big world,
                           Eb
But we thought we were bigger,
Pushing each other to the limits,
        F             Gm
We were learning quicker,
          F/A     Bb
By eleven smoking herb
                         Eb
And drinking burning liquor,
Never rich so we were out
             F
To make that steady figure.

Chorus:
     Gm                F/A   Bb
     Once I was eleven years old,
                   Eb
     My daddy told me,
     “Go get yourself a wife
                  F
     Or you’ll be lonely”,
     Gm                F/A   Bb
     Once I was eleven years old.

Instrumental: Ebmaj9 Ebmaj Ebmajadd11+ Ebmaj

Gm           F/A  Bb
I always had that dream
                      Eb
Like my daddy before me,
So I started writing songs,
          F            Gm
I started writing stories.
                     F/A Bb
Something about that glory,
                            Eb
Just always seemed to bore me,
‘Cause only those I really love
          F
Will ever really know me.

Chorus:
     Gm7               F/A   Bb
     Once I was twenty years old,
                  Ebmaj9
     My story got told
     Before the morning sun,
               F
     When life was lonely,
     Gm7               F/A   Bb
     Once I was twenty years old.
            Ebmaj9
     (Lukas Graham!)

Gm         F/A Bb
I only see my goals,
                        Eb
I don’t believe in failure,
‘Cause I know the smallest voices,
         F          Gm
They can make it major.
              F/A Bb
I got my boys with me
                     Eb
At least those in favor
And if we don’t meet before I leave,
            F
I hope I’ll see you later.

Chorus:
     Gm7               F/A   Bb
     Once I was twenty years old,
                  Ebmaj9
     My story got told,
     I was writing ‘bout everything,
             F
     I saw before me,
     Gm7               F/A   Bb   Ebmaj9
     Once I was twenty years old.

     Gm7                  F/A   Bb
     Soon we’ll be thirty years old,
                         Ebmaj9
     Our songs have been sold,
     We’ve traveled around the world
                     F
     And we’re still roaming,
     Gm7                  F/A   Bb   Ebmaj9
     Soon we’ll be thirty years old.

Gm                       Bb
I’m still learning about life,
                              Eb
My woman brought children for me,
So I can sing them all my songs
          F
And I can tell them stories.

Gm
Most of my boys are with me,
Bb                            Eb
Some are still out seeking glory,
And some I had to leave behind,
            Bb/D
My brother, I’m still sorry.

Bridge:
   Eb                 F     Gm
   Soon I’ll be sixty years old,
                      F
   My daddy got sixty-one,
   Remember, life and then
        Bb/D
   Your life becomes a better one.
 Eb
   I made a man so happy
   F              Gm
   When I wrote a letter once,
 D7sus4
   I hope, my children come
       D7
   And visit once or twice a month.

Chorus:
     Ebmaj              F     Gm
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old,
                               F
     Will I think the world is cold
                             Bb/D
     Or will I have a lot of children
     Who can warm me?
     Ebmaj              F     Gm   Ebmaj9
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old.

     Gm7                F/A   Bb
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old,
                               Ebmaj9
     Will I think the world is cold
     Or will I have a lot of children
             F
     Who can hold me?
     Gm7                F/A   Bb   Ebmaj9
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old.

     Gm                     Bb
     Once I was seven years old,
                  Eb
     My mama told me,
     “Go make yourself some friends
                  F
     Or you’ll be lonely”,
     Gm7              F/A   Bb   Ebmaj9
     Once I was seven years old,
     Gm7              F/A   Bb
     Once I was seven years old.
