[Db]I guess you had to [Gb]be [Db]there, she [Ebm]said, you had to [Db]be[Dbsus] [Db]
She handed me a [Gb]yello[Db]wed photogr[Ebm]aph and then said, s[Ab]ee[Absus] [Ab]
This was my greatest love,
My [Fm]one and only [Gb]love and this [Abm]is [Gb]me
[Gbm]Back when we were [Bbm]beautiful [Absus]beauti[Ab]ful, [Db]see
[Db]I don't feel very [Gb]diffe[Db]rent, she [Ebm]said, I know it's [Db]str[Dbsus]ange[Db]
[Db]I guess I've gotten [Gb]used [Db]to these [Ebm]little aches and p[Ab]ain[Absus]s[Ab]
But I still love to dance,
You [Fm]know we used to [Gb]dance the night [Abm]away[Gb]
[Gbm]Back when we were [Bbm]beautiful [Absus]beautif[Ab]ul [Db]yeah

I fight it every [Ab]day, I guess they never [Db]see
Bbm Faug Bbm Absus Ab
I don't like this at all, what's happening to me
[Ab]To [Db]me
But I really love my [Gb]grand[Db]kids, she[Ebm] said, they're sweet to [Db]hol[Dbsus]d[Db]

[Fm] [Gb] [Abm] 
[Gb]You know, sometimes for a laugh the two of us would act like we were
[Gbm]Back when we were [Bbm]beautiful,[Absus] beauti[Ab]ful, [Db]yeah
[Db]But I guess you had to [Ab]be t[Db]here
