Poems, Prayers And Promises  John Denver

[D]I've been laid to thinking about my l[G/A]ifeti[-]me,[D]
All the t[G/A]hings I've done and how it's been,
And [D]I can't help believin' in[G/A] my ow[D]n mind,
I know I'm [G/A]gonna hate to see it end,


(verse 2)
[D]I've seen alot of sunshine, slept [G/A]out in the r[D]ain.
Spent a [G/A]night or two all on my own,
[D]I've known my lady's pleasures, had m[G/A]yself some fri[D]ends,
Spent a [G/A]time or two in my own home,


(chorus)
[G]And I have to s[A7]ay it now, it's[D] been a good lif[G]e all in all,
It's really f[D]ine to have a c[Bm]hance to hang ar[Em]ound,
[A7]And lie[G] there by the fir[A7]e, and watch[D] the evenin' t[G]ire,
while all my fri[D]ends and my old lady, [Bm]sit and pass [Em7]the pipe ar[A7]ound,
And talk of p[G]oems and prayers and p[Fm]romises,[G] and things t[D]hat we believe in,
How sweet i[Dmaj7]t is to love some[G]one, how right [A]it is to [G]care,
How long it's b[Fmaj7]een since yesterday, w[Em]hat about tom[D]orrow,
And what about our d[Dmaj7]reams, and all the me[G]mories we sh[A]are,[D]  [-]  [G]  [-]  [D]


(verse 3)
[D]The days, they pass so quickly now, nights [G/A]are seldom l[D]ong,
Time a[G/A]round me whispers when it's cold,
Changes so[D]me how frighten me, still I [G/A]have to s[D]mile,
It t[G/A]urns me on to think of growing old,


(verse 4)
[D]For tho' my life's been good to me, there's still [G/A]so much to [D]do,
So ma[G/A]ny things my mind has never known,
I'd like t[D]o raise a family, I'd like t[G/A]o sail aw[D]ay,
And d[G/A]ance across the mountains on the moon,


(chorus)
[G]And I have to s[A7]ay it now, it's[D] been a good lif[G]e all in all,
It's really f[D]ine to have a c[Bm]hance to hang ar[Em]ound,
[A7]And lie[G] there by the fir[A7]e, and watch[D] the evenin' t[G]ire,
while all my fri[D]ends and my old lady, [Bm]sit and pass [Em7]the pipe ar[A7]ound,
And talk of p[G]oems and prayers and p[Fm]romises,[G] and things t[D]hat we believe in,
How sweet i[Dmaj7]t is to love some[G]one, how right [A]it is to [G]care,
How long it's b[Fmaj7]een since yesterday, w[Em]hat about tom[D]orrow,
And what about our d[Dmaj7]reams, and all the me[G]mories we sh[A]are,[D] [-] [G] [-] [D]
