Those Were The Days

Gene Raskin

 AmAm7
 Once upon a time there was a tavern, 
 A7Dm
 where we used to raise a glass or two. 
 Am7
Remember how we laughed away the hours, 
 B7E
and dreamed of all the great things we would do. 

 AmDm
Those were the days, my friend, we thought they'd never end, 
 GG7C
we'd sing and dance for ever and a day;
 DmAm
We'd live the life we choose, we'd fight and never loose, 
 E7Am
For we were young, and sure to have our way.
 A7Dm
La la la la la la la la la la la la 
 E7Am
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days.

Then the busy years went rushing by us.
We lost our starty notions on the way.
If by chance I'd see you in the tavern,
we'd smiled at one another, and we'd say:

repeat chorus

Just tonight I stood before the tavern.
Nothing seemed the way it used to be.
In the glass I saw a strange reflection,
was that lonley woman really me?

repeat chorus

Through the door there came familiar laughter.
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh, my friend, we're older, but no wiser.
For in our hearts the dream are still the same.

repeat chorus
