Intro: Dm9 D (2 times)

Dm9                                       D
 Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.
Dm9                                       D        F | C G | D F | C F |
 Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.

D         F               C                        G
 Old man, look at my life, twenty-four and there's so much more.
D                F             C                  F
 Live alone in a paradise that makes me think of two.
D           F           C                    G
 Love lost, such a cost, give me things that don't get lost,
D                 C                 F                G
 like a coin that won't get tossed, rolling home to you.

D                                       Am7      Em7   G
 Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you.
D                              Am7       Em7      G
 I need someone to love me the whole day through.
D                                    Am7         Em7    G
 Oh, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

| D F | C G | D F | C F |

D          F                 C               G
 Lullabies look in your eyes, run around the same old town,
D                  F             C                  F
 doesn't mean that much to me to mean that much to you.
D          F              C                G
 I've been first and last, look at how the time goes past,
D             C             F                G
 But I'm all alone at last, rolling home to you.

| D | Am7 Em7 G |

D                                       Am7      Em7   G
 Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you.
D                              Am7       Em7      G
 I need someone to love me the whole day through.
D                                    Am7         Em7    G
 Oh, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.
