Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Old Man  Neil Young

##song. You may only use this file for private study, scholarship, or research. #

#From: (David Buell)##Anyways, here's the tab, which with a *very* quick glance, looks fairly accurate to me. I quickly fixed a couple of things (noted by the "DWB:"), but the real interesting stuff is the passing notes/chords/riffs that I don't have a clue how to annotate. But I tried anyways :-)#*****# chords: audio#

# Old Man : Harvest# FM7 D Dsus4 D x2 [FM7]Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like [D]you were x2
[D]  [F]  [C]  [G]   [D]  [F]  [C]  [F]  DWB: (try a quick F-G at the end of the phrase on the way back to D)
                [D]Old man [F]look at my life
[C]Twenty four and there's [G]so much more
[D]Live alone in a [F]paradise
That [C]makes me think of [F]two
DWB: (try a quick F-G at the end of the verse on the way back to D)
[D]Love lost, [F]such a cost,
[C]Give me things that [G]don't get lost.
[D]Like a coin that [C]won't get tossed
[F]Rollin' home to [G]you.
[D]  [Am7]    [Em7]    [G]  [D/F#]                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
DWB: (Between to D and Am7, try Dsus4->D->D9->D, pulling-off the high E from the 3rd fret to 2nd fret to open E, then a quick punch on the 2nd fret again)

         [D]Old man take a look at my life I'm a [Am7]lot like [Em7]you
[D]I need someone to love me the [Am7]whole day [Em7]through
[D]Oh, one look in my eyes and you can [Am7]tell that's [Em7]true.
[D]  [F]  [C]  [G]   [D]  [F]  [C]  [F]  (DWB: play a quick F-G at the end of the phrase on the way back to D)
Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you
I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.
Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were x2 (intro chords)
[D]  [F]  [C]  [G]  [D]          notes :
FM7: x00560
Dsus4: x00233
D9: x00320
Am7: x002010
Em7: 022030
FM7 is x00560, and you repeatedly hammer-on the third (G) string (0h5)
The mention of Dsus4 is to indicate that you should fiddle around with the
high E string, between D, Dsus4 and D9.
(DWB: I made the corrections he notes in the next paragraph, and fixed up the ending)
Just looking at the file right now, i wonder if the line: D F C G D F C G
(or D F C G x2 ) is correct - strikes me it should end in F. hmmm
If you make any additions or corrections - let me know of them!
