F                C         Dm       F
I don't drink as much as I ought to
Bb        C             F     C
Lately it just ain't my style
    F                C              Dm     F
The hard times don't hurt like they used to
          Bb           C            F
They pass quicker like when I was a child
Bb           C7                F
Somehow I've learned how to  listen
      Bb             C         F
For a sound like the sun going down
       Bb         C           F    Bb
In the magic that morning is bringing
          F             C7         Dm  F7
There's a song for the life I have found
Bb          C           F          C
It keeps my feet on the ground


F             C             Dm  F
The midsummer days ain't so heavy
          Bb            C               F    C
They just flow like the breeze all the time
     F          C        Dm F
When nothing appears in a hurry
   Bb           C             F
To make up for  some old lost time
Bb        C               F
Somehow I learned  how to listen
      Bb             C         F
For a sound like the sun going down
       Bb         C          F    Bb
In the magic that morning is bringing
          F             C7         Dm  F7
There's a song for the life I have found
Bb          C           F          
It keeps my feet on the ground
Bb        C7                F
Somehow I learned to how to listen
     Bb             C         Dm F
To a sound like the sun going down
       Bb         C          F    Bb             
In the magic that morning is bringing
          F            Eb            Dm F
There's a song for the friend I have found
Bb           C7          F         
She keeps my feet on the ground
