Song: Fifty Years Ago

Written By: Ian Tyson
Transcribed By: M. Lawrence
Verse 1.
[A]If I could roll back the years
Back when [D]I was young and limber
Loose as a[A]shes in the wind
I had no i[Bm]rons in the f[E]ire
I could [C#m]ride them wild young broncos
The a[D]drenaline came quickly
And Ju[A]anita down at Mona's
Was my o[E]nly hearts de[A]sire
Verse 2.
[A]We were living for the moment
And the s[D]unlight on my silver bits
The r[A]inging of my jinglebobs
Was the m[Bm]usic of my s[E]oul
In the a[C#m]lley back of Mona's
I held J[D]uanita in the shadows
How we h[A]eld on to each other
And the l[E]ovin' that we s[A]tole
[A]And the s[Bm]ighing of the p[E]ines
Up h[A]ere near the timberline
Makes me w[D]ish I'd done things different
Oh, but wishing don't make it [A]so
Oh the t[Bm]ime has passed so q[E]uick
The y[A]ears all run together now
Did I h[D]old Juanita yesterday
Was it fifty years a[E]go
(Instrumental ö A D A E A)
Verse 3.
If I would have quit them broncos
She might have quit that business
But that was back in the fast days
You know before the wire
I bet I could still find her
Bet she's still as pretty
As when she's Juanita down at Mona's
And my only heart's desire
Repeat Chorus twice
