     ALL THOSE YEARS AGO- George Harrison

     D                          Em                              Eo7
     I'm shouting all about love, while they treated you like a dog
           D           F#m7        Em7         Gm6    D         B7   Em7
     When you were the one who had made it so clear, all those years ago
     D                                Em                             Eo7
     I'm talking all about how to give, they don't act with much honesty
          D            F#m7        Em7           Gm6   D       B7     Em7
     But you point the way to the truth when you say, all you need is love

     CHORUS #1:
      A           D       Em     A                    D
     Living with good and bad, I always looked up to you
      A              D       Em       A7
     Now we're left cold and sad, by someone the devil's best friend
     A7+5                  D
     Someone who offended all

                                 Em                              Eo7
     We're living in a bad dream, they've forgotten all about mankind
          D           F#m7            Em7       Gm6    D         B7   Em7
     And you were the one they backed up to the wall, all those years ago
      D           F#m7     Em7        Gm6   D         B7   Em7   D
     You were the one who imagined it all, all those years ago

                                                   all those years ago
     (solo over) D Dm D Dm D Em Eo7 D F#m7 Em7 Gm6  D          B7   Em7  
                                                   all those years ago
                        D    Em Eo7 D f#m7 Em7 Gm6  D          B7   Em7

     CHORUS #2:
      A           D       Em       A                    D
     Deep in the darkest night, I send out a prayer to you
      A           D       Em               A7
     Now in the world of light, where the spirit free of lies
     A7+5                     D
     And all else that we despised

                                     Em                          Eo7
     They've forgotten all about God, he's the only reason we exist
          D           F#m7           Em7         Gm6    D         B7   Em7
     Yet you were the one that they said was so weird, all those years ago
      D          F#m7           Em7      Gm6    D         B7   Em7
     You said it all though not many had ears, all those years ago
      D         F#m7         Em7            Gm6    D         B7   Em7  A  D
     You had control of our smiles and our tears, all those years ago-----

     D            Em     Eo7    D  F#m7  Em7  Gm6  D         B7   Em7
                                                  all those years 
     (repeat and fade)

     Gm6: x x 2 3 3 3   Eo7:  x x 2 3 2 3    A7+5: x 0 3 0 2 1
     Em7: 0 2 2 0 3 0   F#m7: 2 4 2 2 2 2
