Poems, Prayers And Promises

John Denver

 DG/A-D
 I've been laid to thinking about my lifetime, 
 G/A
All the things I've done and how it's been,
 DG/AD
And I can't help believin' in my own mind,
 G/A
I know I'm gonna hate to see it end,

(verse 2)
 DG/AD
 I've seen alot of sunshine, slept out in the rain.
 G/A
Spent a night or two all on my own,
 DG/AD
 I've known my lady's pleasures, had myself some friends,
 G/A
Spent a time or two in my own home,

(chorus)
 GA7DG
 And I have to say it now, it's been a good life all in all,
 DBmEm
It's really fine to have a chance to hang around,
 A7GA7DG
 And lie there by the fire, and watch the evenin' tire,
 DBmEm7A7
while all my friends and my old lady, sit and pass the pipe around,
 GFmGD
And talk of poems and prayers and promises, and things that we believe in,
 Dmaj7GAG
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care,
 Fmaj7EmD
How long it's been since yesterday, what about tomorrow,
 Dmaj7GAD-G-D
And what about our dreams, and all the memories we share,         

(verse 3)
 DG/AD
 The days, they pass so quickly now, nights are seldom long,
 G/A
Time around me whispers when it's cold,
 DG/AD
Changes some how frighten me, still I have to smile,
 G/A
It turns me on to think of growing old,

(verse 4)
 DG/AD
 For tho' my life's been good to me, there's still so much to do,
 G/A
So many things my mind has never known,
 DG/AD
I'd like to raise a family, I'd like to sail away,
 G/A
And dance across the mountains on the moon,

(chorus)
 GA7DG
 And I have to say it now, it's been a good life all in all,
 DBmEm
It's really fine to have a chance to hang around,
 A7GA7DG
 And lie there by the fire, and watch the evenin' tire,
 DBmEm7A7
while all my friends and my old lady, sit and pass the pipe around,
 GFmGD
And talk of poems and prayers and promises, and things that we believe in,
 Dmaj7GAG
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care,
 Fmaj7EmD
How long it's been since yesterday, what about tomorrow,
 Dmaj7GAD-G-D
And what about our dreams, and all the memories we share,
