             [Dm]    [C]   [Bb]    [F]  VERSE:  Dm       C                   Bb             F
Went out walkin' through the wood the other day
       And the w[Dm]orld was a c[C]arpet laid be[Bb]fore me
       [Dm]The buds were b[C]ursting
       And the [Bb]air smelled sweet and str[F]ange
       And it s[Dm]eemed about a h[C]undred years a[F]go
       M[Dm]ary and [C]I, we would [Bb]sit upon a g[F]ate,
       Just g[Dm]azin' at some dr[C]agon in the [Bb]sky.
       [Dm]What tender d[C]ays, we had no s[Bb]ecrets hid a[F]way,
       Well, it se[Dm]emed about a hu[C]ndred years a[F]go.
       [G]Now all my friends are wearing w[Bb]orried smiles,
       L[Dm]iving out a dr[C]eam of what they [Bb]was.
       [G]Don't you think it's s[Bb]ometimes wise not to grow [F]up?
Went out walkin' through the wood the other day,
Can't you see the furrows in my forehead?
What tender days, we had no secrets hid away,
Now it seems about a hundred years ago.
Now if you see me drinkin' bad red wine,
Don't worry 'bout this man that you love.
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?
      [Dm] You're gonna k[C]iss and [Bb]say good-b[F]ye, [Dm]yea[C]h, I w[Bb]arn you.
      [Dm] You're gonna k[C]iss and [Bb]say good-b[F]ye, [Dm]yea[C]h, I w[Bb]arn you.
      [Dm] You're gonna k[C]iss and [Bb]say good-b[F]ye, [Dm]oh L[C]ord, I w[F]arn you,
       And pl[G]ease excuse me while I h[Bb]ide away.
       Call me l[F]azy bones,
       Ain't got no t[Bb]ime to waste away,
       L[F]azy bones ain't got no t[Bb]ime to waste away.
       D[G]on't you think, don't you think,
       It's j[Bb]ust about time to hide aw[F]ay?
       Y[Bb]eah, y[F]eah!
Wah, Wah and fade out.
