Intro: E
       F#m7 A/E | Dmaj9 Dmaj9 Dmaj9 E | F#m7 A | Dmaj9

Chorus:
     F#m7                   A/E               Dmaj9
     Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
                                                 E
     “Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely”,
     F#m7                   A    Dmaj9
     Once I was seven years old.

F#m           E/G# A                                D
It was a big, big world, but we thought we were bigger,
                                          E             F#m
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker,
          E/G#    A
By eleven smoking herb
                         D
And drinking burning liquor,
                                       E
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure.

Chorus:
     F#m               E/G#  A                  D
     Once I was eleven years old, my daddy told me,
                                          E
     “Go get yourself a wife or you’ll be lonely”,
     F#m               E/G#  A    Dmaj9  Dmaj  Dmajadd11+  Dmaj
     Once I was eleven years old.

F#m          E/G# A                           D
I always had that dream like my daddy before me,
                                      E            F#m
So I started writing songs, I started writing stories.
                     E/G# A
Something about that glory,
                            D
Just always seemed to bore me,
                                          E
‘Cause only those I really love will ever really know me.

Chorus:
     F#m7              E/G#  A                 Dmaj9
     Once I was twenty years old, my story got told
                                       E
     Before the morning sun, when life was lonely,
     F#m7              E/G#  A
     Once I was twenty years old.
            Dmaj9
     (Lukas Graham!)

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

Chorus:
     F#m7              E/G#  A                 Dmaj9
     Once I was twenty years old, my story got told,
                                             E
     I was writing ‘bout everything, I saw before me,
     F#m7              E/G#  A    Dmaj9
     Once I was twenty years old.

     F#m7                 E/G#  A                        Dmaj9
     Soon we’ll be thirty years old, our songs have been sold,
                                                     E
     We’ve traveled around the world and we’re still roaming,
     F#m7                 E/G#  A    Dmaj9
     Soon we’ll be thirty years old.

F#m                      A
I’m still learning about life,
                              D
My woman brought children for me,
So I can sing them all my songs
          E
And I can tell them stories.

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

Bridge:
   D                  E     F#m                     E
   Soon I’ll be sixty years old, my daddy got sixty-one,
                                A/C#
   Remember, life and then your life becomes a better one.
 D                       E              F#m
   I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once,
 C#7sus4                        C#7
   I hope, my children come and visit once or twice a month.

Chorus:
     Dmaj               E     F#m                            E
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old, will I think the world is cold
                             A/C#
     Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me?
     Dmaj               E     F#m  Dmaj9
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old.

     F#m7               E/G#  A                              Dmaj9
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old, will I think the world is cold
                                              E
     Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me?
     F#m7               E/G#  A    Dmaj9
     Soon I’ll be sixty years old.

     F#m                    A                 D
     Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
                                                 E
     “Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely”,
     F#m7             E/G#  A    Dmaj9
     Once I was seven years old,
     F#m7             E/G#  A
     Once I was seven years old.
