GWhen I was a yCounger man lGookin' for my pot of gCold GEverywhere I tCurned the doors were clDosin' Took Gevery ounce of fCaith I had to kGeep on keepin' Con SGtill I felt like CI was only lDosin' I refCused then like I dGo now to let anybody tie me dCown I lGost a few good friends along the wDay I was rCaised up poor and I wGanted more And maybe I'm a little too prCoud LGookin' back I see a kid who was jDust afraid HCungry and Dold before this Gtime

C C/B Am7 G D

C G

ThGrough the years I've knCown my share of brGoken hearted fCools And thGose who couldn't chCoose a path woDrth taking There's nGothin' in the wCorld so sad as tGalking to a mCan NGever knew his lCife was his for mDaking Ain't it Cabout time you rGealize? It's not worth keepin' scCore You wGin some, you lose some and you Dlet it go WChat's the use of stGacking on every failure another stCone Till you fGind you've spent your whole life BDuilding walls CLonely and Dold before your tGime

C C/B Am7 G D

C G

It tCook so lEmong to see That trCuth was all arEmound mDe NGow the wren has gCone to roost and the skGy is turnin' Cgold And lGike the sky my sCoul is also Dturnin' TGurnin' from the pCast, at last and Gall I've left bCehind CGould it be that CI am finally lDearnin'? LCearnin' I'm desGerving of love and the peaceful hCeart I won't Gtear myself apart no more for trDyin' Tired of lCyin' to mysGelf, tryin' to buy what can't be bCought It's not lGivin' that you're doin' if it feels like dDyin CCryin, growin' Dold before yourG time CCryin, growin' Dold before yourG time
