-----------------------------------

[Intro]

Em G Cmaj7 D
Em G Cmaj7


[Chorus 1]

Em                     G                 Cmaj7
Once I was seven years old my momma told me
                                           D
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                     G    Cmaj7
Once I was seven years old


[Verse 1]

Em            D/F# G
  It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
Cmaj7                                       D
  Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
Em          D/F#    G
  By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Cmaj7                                    D
  Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure


[Chorus 2]

Em                D/F#  G                 Cmaj7
Once I was eleven years old my daddy told me
                                    D
Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely
Em                D/F#  G   Cmaj7
Once I was eleven years old


[Verse 2]

Em             D/F# G
  I always had that dream like my daddy before me
Cmaj7                                   D
  So I started writing songs, I started writing stories
Em                     D/F# G
  Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me
Cmaj7                                      D
  Cause only those I really love will ever really know me


[Chorus 3]

Em            D/F#  G                 Cmaj7
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
                                    D
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Em                D/F#  G  Cmaj7
Once I was 20 years old
(Lukas Graham!!!)


[Verse 3]

Em           D/F# G
  I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure
Cmaj7                                        D
  Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major
Em              D/F# G
  I got my boys with me at least those in favour
Cmaj7                                              D
  And if we don't meet before I leave, I hope I'll see you later


[Chorus 4]

Em            D/F#  G                 Cmaj7
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
                                        D
I was writing about everything, I saw before me
Em            D/F#  G   Cmaj7
Once I was 20 years old
Em               D/F#  G                        Cmaj7
Soon we'll be 30 years old, our songs have been sold
                                                D
We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming
Em               D/F#  G   Cmaj7
Soon we'll be 30 years old


[Verse 4]

Em                         G
  I'm still learning about life
                              Cmaj7
My woman brought children for me
So I can sing them all my songs
          D
And I can tell them stories
Em                         
  Most of my boys are with me
G
Some are still out seeking glory
Cmaj7
  And some I had to leave behind
           G/B
My brother I'm still sorry


[Bridge]

Cmaj7           D     Em                D
Soon I'll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61
                            G/B
Remember life and then your life becomes a better one
Cmaj7                    D              Em               
   I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
B7sus4                         B7
   I hope my children come and visit, once or twice a month


[Chorus 5]

Cmaj7           D     Em                             D
Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
                        G/B
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me
Cmaj7           D     Em    Cmaj7 D
Soon I'll be 60 years old


[Chorus 6]

Em              D/F#  G                              Cmaj7
Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
                                         D
Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me
Em              D/F#  G      
Soon I'll be 60 years old


[Chorus 7]

Em                     G                  Cmaj7
Once I was seven years old, my momma told me
                                           D
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em               D/F#  G   Cmaj7
Once I was seven years old
Em               D/F#  G 
Once I was seven years old
