[E]This day is getting o[C#m]lder,
i[Ab]n fading light it's bea[A]utiful.
[E]This wind is blowing cold[C#m]er,
a[Ab]nd too soon I'll feel it's p[A]ull.
[E]Still, I took all my chances,
e[C#m]arned myself an even score.
T[Ab]ry to learn my lessons w[A]ell.
[E]And I don't have the answers,
for tho[C#m]se questions anymore.
Onl[Ab]y love can be both heaven and he[A]ll.
[E]So sturdy up, sturdy up your[C#m] heart,
for th[Ab]e road is long ah[A]ead.
I'll [E]be with you even though we're a[C#m]part,
but your[Ab] road is yours to tr[A]ead.
And[E] so it goes, and so it [C#m]goes,
and so [Ab]it goes, slows your mind,[A] mind, mind,
And s[E]o it goes..[C#m]. and so it goes, and s[Ab]o it goes, slows yo[A]ur mind, mind, mind,
[E]I've grown old on this ocean,

[Ab]Gave my wife my devotion,
when she died, the [A]ocean my tears.
[E]I've tried to teach you well son,
[C#m]all of everything I knew.
[Ab]Of how to live this life be[A] true.
[E]Don't bow your head to no one,
[C#m]and no matter what you do,
[Ab]if you start then see it th[A]rough.
[E]So sturdy up, sturdy up you[C#m]r heart,
[Ab]for the road is long ah[A]ead.
[E]I'll be with you even though we're[C#m] apart,
[Ab]but your road is yours to t[A]read.
[E]And so it goes, and so i[C#m]t goes,
[Ab]and so it goes, slows your mind[A], mind, mind,
[E] [C#m] [Ab]
[A]And so it goes... and so it goes, and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind.
