[Intro] Em G Cmaj7 Dadd4 Em G Cmaj7
[Verse 1] 
O[Em]nce I was Seven years old, [G]my momma told me[Cmaj7],
g[Cmaj7]o make yourself some friends or you'll be [Dadd4]lonely
[Em]once I was Seven years [G]old[Cmaj7]
[Em]It was a bi[D/F#]g big wor[G]ld, but we thought we were [G]bigger.
P[Cmaj7]ushing each other to the limits, we were learning q[Dadd4]uicker.
[Em]By eleven s[D/F#]moking h[G]erb and drinking burning liquor
[Cmaj7]Never rich so we were out to make that steady [Dadd4]figure

[Verse 2] 
[Em]Once I was [D/F#]eleven years [G]old, my daddy told [Cmaj7]me,
[Cmaj7]go get yourself a wife or you'll be l[Dadd4]onely.
[Em]Once I was [D/F#]eleven years [G]old[Cmaj7]
[Em]I always [D/F#]have that [G]dream like my Daddy before [Cmaj7]me
[Cmaj7]So I´m started writing songs I started writin[Dadd4]g stories
[Em]Something about [D/F#]the g[G]lory, just always seemed to bore [Cmaj7]me,
[Cmaj7]Cause only those I really love will ever really know[Dadd4] me

[Verse 3] 
[Em]Once I was [D/F#]twenty years [G]old, my story got [Cmaj7]told,
[Cmaj7]before the morning sun, when life was [Dadd4]lonely.
[Em]Once I was [D/F#]twenty [G]years old[Cmaj7]
[Em]I only see my g[D/F#]oals, I [G]don't believe in failure.
[Cmaj7]Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it[Dadd4] major,
[Em]I got my [D/F#]boys with[G] me, at least those in favour
[Cmaj7]and if we don´t meet before I leave, I hope to see yo[Dadd4]u later.
[Verse 4] 
[Em]Once I was 2[D/F#]0 years old[G] my story got told
[Cmaj7]I was writing about everything I saw before [Dadd4]me
[Em]Once I was 2[D/F#]0 years [G]old[Cmaj7]
[Em]Soon we´ll be 3[D/F#]0 years [G]old our songs have been sold
[Cmaj7]we´ve traveled around the world and we´re st[Dadd4]ill roaming
[Em]Soon we´ll be[D/F#] 30 years [G]old[Cmaj7]

[Verse 5] 
[Em]I´m still learning [D]about life[G] my woman brought children[G] for me
[Cmaj7]so I can sing them all my songs and I can tell them s[Dadd4]tories
[Em]Most of my boys are[D] with [G]me some are still out seeking[G] glory
[Cmaj7]And some I had to leave behind, my brother I´m[G/B] still sorry

[Verse 6] 
Cmaj7 Dadd4 | Em D
Soon I´ll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61
[D]remember life and then your [Dsus4]life becomes a better o[D]ne
[Cmaj7]I made the man so happy [Dadd4]when I wrote the letter o[Em]nce
[B7]I hope my children come and[B7sus4] visit once or twice a m[B7]onth
[Cmaj7]Soon I´ll be[Dadd4] 60 years[Em] old will I think the world is cold
[D]or will I have a lot of children who can wa[Dsus4]rm me?
[Cmaj7]Soon I´ll be[D/F] 60 y[G]ears[Cmaj7] old

[Em]Soon I´ll be [D/F#]60 years[G] old will I think the world is[G] cold
[Cmaj7]or will I have a lot of children who can warm [Dadd4]me?
[Em]Soon I´ll be[D/F#] 60 ye[G]ars ol[Cmaj7]d

[Verse 8] 
[Em]Once I was seven years [G]old, my momma told me,
[Cmaj7]go make yourself some friends or you'll be[Dadd4] lonely
[Em]once I was s[D/F#]even [G]yea[Cmaj7]rs old
[Em]once I was [D/F#]seven years [G]old
